Colt Express Adds Private Multiplayer and More

Colt Express Adds Private Multiplayer and More

Dec 13, 2016

We reviewed Colt Express fairly recently, and happily proclaimed it as a game to try; the card strategy game has plenty of action, and it it easy to get addicted to very, very quickly.

It also helps that it is based upon a popular board game. Now, the digitized version is getting an update.

The updated build brings two great features: most notably, the game now allows players to get into multiplayer rounds with friends. Fantastic, really, as this makes the game as personable as the physical version.

Also, the game now features a complete lobby so players can browse and join open games. Again, another great addition.

And of course, we get the ubiquitous bug fixes.

Colt Express remains available on Google Play for a one-time price of $6.99. Check out the trailer below.
