Gameloft announced the release of free DLC for the PC and Switch versions of their game The Oregon Trail.
Previously exclusively available for its Apple Arcade version, the free DLC for The Oregon Trail for PC and Switch adds a plethora of new stories and experiences for players to explore including:
- Thirteen new stories exploring more fearsome critters and animals on the trail that were both unusual and amusing. These stories became an oral tradition popular amongst loggers and mountain men in the 19th and early 20th centuries often considered the precursors to modern-day cryptids.
- A select Native American story told by Sarah Winnemucca about the legend of “The People Eaters,” a cannibalistic, fearsome red-headed tribe who fought against the Numa people.
- A new story focused on the Horse Creek Treaty, where players help the Lenape family travel to Fort Laramie to help act as interpreters between the Crow and the United States. This new story also adds to the game two new characters – Thomas Fitzpatrick and Mato Oyuhu.
- A new story exploring the Chisholm Trail Journey. Established in 1867 by Jesse Chisholm and Black Beaver, players will draft and direct a chuck wagon party and travel alongside several cowboys as they work to herd a large group of cattle from San Antonio to Abilene. This story takes place over a two-leg journey and includes ten new locations.
In addition to these new stories, The Oregon Trail on PC and Nintendo Switch includes all five previous content updates, more accessibility options, events, and visual filters to see the game in a whole new way.
