Kelsey took a look at Colt Express last week and thought it was a pretty great rendition of a board game with one huge flaw, the multiplayer system was broken. While online play existed, the ability to create or join games was enough of a mess to prevent him from playing even one multiplayer contest. It was bad enough that Asmodee decided to pull back their December releases to ensure that multiplayer hijinks wouldn’t be an issue going forward. Today, Asmodee took steps to correct what’s already out there and Colt Express has been updated to make multiplayer a little more palatable.
The fix landed last night and includes both a lobby which will allow you to browse and join open games. It also included private games so you can now create all new games and play with your friends (and only your friends).
So, will this fix all of Colt Express’ woes? Considering it was Kelsey’s only real beef with the game, possibly. Just in case, they added a bunch of bug fixes along the way as well, so the Colt Express you play today should be a different beast than what we had last week. You can check it out for iOS Universal, Android, and PC.
