The Oregon Trail: Music from the Gameloft Game is the first official album release from Gameloft for The Oregon Trail, and the latest album release from the game publisher and developer, following the November 2021 release of High Scores: Music from Gameloft Games. The soundtrack was composed by award-winning Gameloft composer Nicolas Dubé, who crafted the contemporary alt-country sound.

The Oregon Trail: Music from the Gameloft Game highlights Gameloft's commitment to world-class music in games across all platforms, and highlights Gameloft’s commitment to making world-class games and experiences. "It’s a joy to see this soundtrack release, so that players can experience The Oregon Trail even if they haven’t played the game," said Nicolas Dubé, Music Composer at Gameloft Montreal and Composer for The Oregon Trail. "We really wanted to create something that touches upon the adventure of the trail, the pain of the struggles and hardships, and the joy and elation of successfully reaching Oregon or fording a river or taking care of your party. This soundtrack is something we’re really proud of, a moody alt-country experience that should speak to fans of the game and more.”
