The Oregon Trail will appear soon on Windows PC and Nintendo Switch. PC players will be able to get it either through the Microsoft Store or via Steam. While there is no concrete release date as of yet, we can expect to see it at the end of November 2022.
The Oregon Trail is actually a series of games, and the first one came out in 1971. It is a mostly text-based educational adventure game in which the player assumes the role of a wagon leader of settlers. Your goal is to travel from Independence, Missouri to the Willamette Valley. Not only does this help to teach skills such as resource management and decision making, but it also helps to educate the player on what life was like for the 19th century pioneers.
There are also mobile titles from the franchise. For example, Gameloft released The Oregon Trail HD for mobile devices in 2010, and another one for Apple Arcade in 2021. Though the different versions of the games all follow the same basic plot, there are some differences in how they handle mini-games or presentation.
