Howdy pardners! I am here to bring you some really, really exciting news: the FrontierVille Oregon Trail (one of the four “coming soon” areas that were available in FrontierVille since the game launch) might be finally coming soon – as soon as March 2011! There are some clues that, if put one next to the other, let us believe that Oregon Trail will be opened (or released, as you wish to say it) in FrontierVille really soon.
Why I’m saying that? First of, because of the recently launched Doctor’s Office and most specifically, the Doctor’s Office Collection: after trading it in, you will be rewarded with a new item, Medical Supplies which are unusable at this moment in the game. However, if you do trade the collection, get the item and hover your mouse over it in your inventory, you will see the following message: “You’ll need these when you head out to open up other frontiers!” (thanks, Kristie for the info!)
Combine that with the fact that if you click the Oregon Trail sign in FrontierVille, you will see the message: “Bring wagon axles, ammo, medicine and plenty o’ grub” and things start to make more sense. And since we already have ammo (saltpeter and the cannons), grub (as in food) is all over the homestead, and friends are here to send us the axles, so I think it’s safe to guess that the FrontierVille Oregon Trail is coming soon, most likely by the end of this month.
