With the integration of HealthKit and the release of The Oregon Trail: StepTracker Apple Watch app, Gameloft, a pioneer in the development and publishing of video games, and HarperCollins Productions announced an exciting new update to the smash hit, #1 most-downloaded Apple Arcade game in 2021, The Oregon Trail. Players can now use their iPhone or Apple Watch to more visibly experiencing the actual steps of the Oregon Trail experience via their daily life, which is tied to the idea of The Oregon Trail – In Real Life.
Transform your daily walks with the new The Oregon Trail Healthkit and Apple Watch app
Players may download The Oregon Trail on Apple Arcade for a first-of-its-kind experience that will turn their daily strolls, runs, or wheelchair pushes into a westward trek over a virtual version of the United States. Players may select their own speed with the brand-new The Oregon Trail: StepTracker app for Apple Watch, walking, running, or wheeling in a way that best suits their daily schedule.
“By utilizing Apple Health, we can confidently say the original walking simulator branches out of being just a game, into a method for players to follow the path of The Oregon Trail with their own steps. We think it’s a great way for people to better understand those who made this journey, all while taking strides towards enhancing their own health and fitness,” said David MacMinn, Game Manager of Gameloft Brisbane.
In addition to a straightforward step counter, players will also find digital representations of actual places, statistics and progress information, daily summaries, the ability to customize their avatars, in-game awards, and more. There is a lot for players to see and do as they travel over the 2,000-mile Oregon Trail, which has five journey legs, 64 places, seven forts, 15 river crossings, and eight pony express stations.
The Oregon Road’s stunning visuals are prominent, and players can watch the animated scenery transform as they travel the trail from Independence to Oregon. Players could finish this huge journey in more than a year if they walked 10,000 steps per day. The Oregon Trail StepTracker App for the Apple Watch is available to download on Apple Arcade.
