Asmodee Digital and Frima Studios were excited to announce that Colt Express is officially available on iOS, Android, and PC at a price of $6.99 (mobile) and $9.99 (Steam).
For those unaware, this is a digital version of the award-winning board game of the same name that takes players back into the Wild West. You will need to utilize cards and sound strategy as you maneuver around a train and collect as much loot as possible.
There is an extensive single-player mode that offers up six unique bandits featuring their own goals and challenges, as well as 30 graphic-novel stylized chapters (5 per character), and exclusive game variants that you can unlock in the story mode to help increase the train robbing action.
Those interested can also rob trains online while competing against others via online multiplayer and global leaderboards that are constantly updating in real-time. If you just want to play friends, you can utilize the friends list option and challenge them at anytime, anywhere, as well as add others you enjoy playing with to this list.
Remi Hanesse, Asmodee Digital’s Product Manager, stated, “We’re thrilled to bring the wild west to mobile and PC gamers with the release of the new digital version of the award-winning Colt Express board game. We can’t wait for digital outlaws to start scheming their way to lots of loot in the game’s extensive single-player story mode and online multiplayer mode.”
