Oregon Trail is one of the newest additions to Apple Arcade

One of the newest addition to Apple Arcade, Apple’s US$4.99/month or $49.99/year game streaming service that has over 130 games, is Oregon Trail. It’s available for the iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac. (Apple Arcade is also available as part of the Apple One bundle.)

Here’s how Oregon Trail is described: 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.

Oregon Trail is a single-player player game for ages 12 and up. It has game controller support.
