GameDigits Ltd. has updated its chart-topping App Store game Auction Wars: Storage King. The update adds an online multiplayer feature. Players can now enter auctions and bid on items against friends and strangers from around the world. Online multiplayer was an addition regularly requested by fans, and in releasing the update GameDigits has made their game the first of its kind to feature online multiplayer.
In the game the player takes on the role of a professional buyer, an auction hunter. They visit the storage auctions, and face off against other opponents; either artificial ones in the single player mode, or friends and strangers from around the world in the multiplayer mode. It’s up to the player to bid what they think the items in the auction are worth, with the aim of turning a profit. If they make the right call, they’ll take home the goodies and make big money. If they make the wrong call, they can go home empty handed, or even worse – out of pocket!
Throughout the game the player makes money and adds to their profits. As they earn more money, they also earn the right to visit more and more prestigious auction houses, where higher quality items can be uncovered and collected. The most successful players are invited to mysterious rare auction houses, where only the finest quality items can be found.
Since its release the game has topped charts around the world, and earned rave reviews from its fans. GameDigits has updated the game regularly, adding more and more items, more options for the player, and now the much requested online multiplayer mode.
Lindsey Greenwood from GameDigits Ltd. commented, “We made a promise when we released Auction Wars: Storage King that we’d listen closely to what fans of the game were saying. The most requested feature was online multiplayer, and here it is! It’s a great addition, and we’re proud that we could be the first auction game out there to deliver it. We’ve also added more options to the game, and over fifty quality new items. We’re also keeping the game at its current 50% discounted price for the time being, so that more people can enjoy this great title.”
