Official Description (Ad Blurb)

The Oregon Trail™ by Gameloft—Experience The Oregon Trail™ like never before. A modern twist on the trials and tribulations of the road to Oregon, this official successor to the global phenomenon will immerse players in exhilarating journeys ranging from the historically accurate to the completely wild. Players will pick their traveling party, stock the wagon with supplies, and embark on an adventure filled with tough choices, new dangers and unexpected situations. Surviving blizzards, broken limbs, snakebites, exhaustion, starvation, and the dreaded dysentery is no small feat; all the while navigating an untamed frontier to get their party to their new life in Oregon before the winter. Track down a missing party in the aftermath of a fierce blizzard, transport volatile gunpowder through blistering desert heat, compete in challenging hunting mini-games, and meet a broad cast of historic figures. With procedurally selected random events where players’ choices affect their party and future game events, there’s always a new adventure on the horizon every time they play.

Always a New Adventure • Build your travel party from different classes, each with their own starting items, skills and random personality traits, to make your journey to Oregon unique every time you play. • Overcome hundreds of random events where each choice you make affects your party and future events with outcomes influenced by your unique party members’ skills and traits. • Remember to take care of your party, wagon, and oxen or you’ll all become casualties of the trail.

Fresh Features • Take on 12 playable Journeys. • Monitor your party members’ health, morale, stamina and hygiene. • Manage your inventory to squeeze everything you can into the wagon. • Maintain your wagon to prevent breakdowns and inventory loss from spoiling or spillage. • Learn about real people and places from the trail in your interactive Journal. • Collect and learn about all of the interesting animals that you’ll encounter along the way.

True to the Original • Hunting and Rafting mini-games make a long-awaited return. Both remain faithful to their original gameplay with all-new visuals. • Dysentery, river forging, broken legs, thieves in the night, plus many more classic events and hazards await!

Striking Art Direction and Score • A beautiful blend of charming pixel art characters, 3D environments and cutting-edge lighting and visual effects creates a unique visual style that’s nostalgic and contemporary all at once. • An all-original soundtrack of alt-country-inspired music combined with classic 8-bit-style sound effects.

Respectful Representation • For the first time, the game features Native American playable characters and stories, celebrating the history and cultures of the Peoples who first lived on this land and still live here today. • Thorough research and multiple academic consultants were involved in this game’s production to ensure accuracy and respectful representation of all peoples depicted in the game.

Officially Licensed & Supported • The Oregon Trail™ is an officially licensed game from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH). • HMH supported the evolution of The Oregon Trail™ to be true to the original, but with updated gameplay and visuals. • 2016 Video Game Hall of Fame inductee.
