Happy Wars passes 2 million players, free update hits Xbox Live today

Happy Wars has passed two million players, developer Toylogic has revealed. To celebrate the team has announced a new game update that adds new features into the mix.

The free-to-play brawler has marked a big step for Microsoft, showing that the free, micro-payment driven genre can succeed on the Xbox 360 format. It's no secret a lot of folk hate micro-payments, but at least these two million people don't seem to mind their presence.

Here's the update notes in full:

Special Match Mode
Special Match mode is where new rules will be showcased moving forward. And new rules mean that you can get special rewards unavailable through the usual multiplayer modes!

Enjoy the first Special Match offering with the new "Save the KING" multiplayer rules; support your team's KING player in the journey to the enemy castle. As soon as the KING enters the castle, you win! When you become a King, use your sceptre to knock enemies away and lead the way to the enemy castle.

Enhance Items More
Item level cap is extended from ten to 15. Level up your favorite item and create the ultimate item! And you can check all items - even items you've never gotten in Item Encyclopedia now. Find the best item for your tactic and get it from multiplayer games, Happy Cards, Special Match and more!

Additional Customization Slots
Now there are not one but three customization slots for the classes. The player can customize each slot with character parts and items and select the slot to use when going into battle during the game. Make customization slots to manage various war situations strategically!

OXM also has a gallery of new screens. They're watermarked so I can't embed them here. But go have a look.
