In the past few weeks, we’ve received a lot of hints regarding the possible release of the Oregon Trail in FrontierVille – one of the four “coming soon” areas that were teased by Zynga ever since the game was released.
We fist had the release of the Doctor’s Office that rewarded us with a mysterious Medical Supplies for the Oregon Trail (we assume), then the release of the Blacksmith… and all pointed towards the Oregon Trail.
But today we have the ultimate proof that indeed Zynga is moving something towards the Oregon Trail: if you click the Oregon Trail sign on your homestead, you will notice the following screen (thanks, Futurepilot!):
As you can see, it reads “Adventurers are headin’ West! Maybe one of ‘em will pass by your homestead, pardner. The Oregon Trail ain’t for the faint of heart – you’ll need pioneer spirit ‘n’ teamwork to make it!”
If this still doesn’t mean anything to you, here is the original sign of the Oregon Trail:
Indeed, the signs have changed and now Zynga has offered us a bit more details about the new area. From what we’ve read between the lines, we understand that a new character will introduce the Oregon Trail in FrontierVille and we’ll need to spam-a-lot of our neighbors (that’s what I get from “spirig&teamwork” even though I really hope I’m not right here). Maybe we’ll get some missions to complete together with our neighbors where they do their part and us ours, with each player having a specific role? Well, only time will tell.
Until then, let us know what do you think about the Oregon Trail in FrontierVille and how you’d like it to actually be like!
