It’s not going to be an easy journey. The west is an unforgiving region with lots of peril on the way. Players must fight their way through it all as they build their dream town full of shops, saloons, railway stations, and museums. Things don’t have to be done alone, either. Boom Town allows for collaborative gameplay through special challenges and weekly and seasonal events.
