Colt Canyon - Official Launch Trailer

Colt Canyon will be available for the entire month of December. In it, you are a gunslinger left for dead with a partner that has been kidnapped. On a mission to save your partner, you will venture to the unforgiving landscape of Colt Canyon, full of hidden treasures, weapons, danger, and ne'er-do-wells.

You'll shoot your way through the region and blow some things up with TNT while a spaghetti western soundtrack plays in the background.
