Cold Iron's Wild Card Update Is Available Now!

Since Cold Iron's release last January, James and I have been blown away by all the positive reviews, comments and posts. But we've also been scouring each one for ideas and suggestions on how to improve Cold Iron and make it the premier Wild West experience. Which leads us to today's Wild Card Update!

With this update, we're giving gunslingers everywhere more ways to play Cold Iron. That means new game modes, difficulty options, a rewards system with tons of new unlockables, and countless behind-the-scenes improvements to graphics, menus, scoring, and controls.

Here's the full list of what you'll find in the Wild Card Update. You'll notice it's numbered because... We don't waste bullets 'round these parts.

1. NEW: EXHIBITION MODE--Duel against individual opponents with the ability to quickly retry the same opponent if you lose.
2. NEW: TRAINING MODE--Play four new games to hone your gunslinging skills.
3. NEW: SHOOTOUT (TRAINING)--Shoot outlaws that appear from behind cover, but be careful not to shoot innocents!
4. NEW: JUGGLER'S QUEST (TRAINING)--Shoot bottles and cans that rain from the sky. Make it to the end and defeat the boss to win.
5. NEW: ENDLESS SHOOTOUT (TRAINING)--Outlaws appear faster and faster the more you shoot. The game ends when you shoot an innocent.
6. NEW: JUGGLE FOREVER (TRAINING)--More cans are added as time passes. The game ends when anything touches the ground.
7. NEW: HARDCORE MODE--For serious gunslingers only! Enabling this option limits you to six bullets per round and forces you to holster the gun at your hip and cock it before firing.
8. NEW: DIFFICULTY OPTIONS--Adjust the difficulty level in Exhibition Mode and Juggler's Quest.
9. NEW: PRIZES--Earn points for dueling, training, and discovering secrets. Spend points to unlock new guns, alternate gun sounds, and saloon decorations.
11. IMPROVED: MENUS--Get a better look at the statues you've unlocked. All of our menus have been re-designed to be prettier and more informative.
12. IMPROVED: OPTIONS--In addition to Hardcore Mode, you now have the option of automatically skipping all cutscenes.
13. IMPROVED: SCORING--Base scores for several duels were re-calculated based on player feedback. There's gold in them duels!
14. FIXED: You can now skip the mini-cutscene between the 10th and 11th duels in Campaign Mode.
15. FIXED: Fixed a rare holster UI bug.

And of course we're doing it all for free. The Wild Card Update is available as an automatic download for Cold Iron players across all platforms.

Aim true!
Matthew and James

“Even with its sci-fi and puzzle elements set aside, Cold Iron is simply the best western dueling game available in VR. The fact that it has a great story and rewarding puzzles is just icing on this six-shootin’ cake.”
9/10 – GameCritics

“...the feeling of triumph that I had upon beating it is a feeling that I haven’t had for quite a while in gaming... Cold Iron made me feel supernaturally fast, and wicked smart.”
8/10 – Gaming Nexus

“...there are few VR games that have created as strong a sense of immersion as Cold Iron... You’ll want to saddle up and ride on this VR gem.”

Will I like this game?

If you enjoy the boss rush gameplay of Cuphead, the white-knuckled western aesthetic of Red Dead Redemption, the tight gunplay of Arizona Sunshine and Raw Data, and the magic and mystery of The Dark Tower, then it's time to meet Cold Iron.

Will you answer the call and fight for justice in this epic Old West tale or surrender to the ruthless cowboys and fearsome monsters that threaten every step of your journey? Each dueling showdown requires a unique set of skills as you string together combos of speed, accuracy, and intelligence in an arcade boss rush with intuitive motion controls. The average cowboy spends his whole life dreaming of gold, bounties, and welcoming saloons, but your story holds more surprises than just bullets and survival.
