Gameloft, a leader in the development and publishing of games, and HarperCollins Productions, an award-winning media production company within HarperCollins Publishers, are thrilled to announce that The Oregon Trail™, the multiple award-winning official successor to the global phenomenon, is now available to play on Xbox One X|S and Xbox Series X|S for $23.99 during its launch week, then $29.99 once its Survival Sale has commenced.
In The Oregon Trail, players are put at the center of all the trials and tribulations of the journey westward. They must stock their wagon, choose their traveling party, and make sure they all arrive safely to Oregon by making tough choices in dangerous and unexpected situations. Players will also learn the real history behind the trail, including the Native American experience, which is a first in the franchise.
The release of The Oregon Trail on Xbox Series X|S is a faithful adaptation of the Apple Arcade version and has been created with the support of Gameloft Lviv. The Xbox X|S version includes all five previous Apple Arcade content updates, as well as new features including more accessibility options, events, and visual filters to see the game in a whole new way!
Prospective pioneers that want to keep adventuring beyond the base The Oregon Trail experience can purchase its “Cowboys and Critters” DLC for $5. The DLC includes thirteen new stories that explore some of the more fearsome critters and animals on the trail and additional stories that focus on the Horse Creek Treaty, the Chisholm Trail Journey, and a select Native American story about the legend of “The People Eaters,” a cannibalistic, fearsome red-headed tribe who fought against the Numa people.
“We’re incredibly excited for even more players to experience The Oregon Trail,” said David MacMinn, Game Manager. “We’re pleased to see our game expand to multiple new platforms, and we hope Xbox players will enjoy their time on the trail as much as we did making it.”
”The gameplay in this new version of The Oregon Trail has proven to be incredibly exciting and as popular as it was in the 90s”, said Caroline Fraser, Head of HarperCollins Productions. “We are thrilled to expand the audience to Xbox and make the game available to even more players.”
