Well, it's about darn-tootin' time. Zynga has pushed an update to Pioneer Trail that gives the game's Market a much-needed revamp. In the same vein of games like FarmVille, CityVille and more, players can now search the Pioneer Trail Market to find exactly what they're looking for through a handy search bar. While that's the most notable change, there a few smaller ones.

The home page for the Pioneer Trail Market has changed into something similar to Zynga's other popular games. Now, it displays three featured promotions, which we imagine the developer will update on a regular basis. As of this writing, Zynga invites players to complete their frontier with new buildings, shop around for brand new winter items and to buy Horseshoes. So, yeah, nothing special is being offered just yet, but hopefully that will change soon.

This Market update is just one of numerous changes Zynga promises its players for Pioneer Trail, like a new building through which players will get to store other buildings. Despite the company's several promises for a better game--and even holding a luncheon meeting to discuss issues with the game--Pioneer Trail has been steadily losing players since its launch. As of this writing, the game has 4.7 million monthly players and 1.5 million logging in daily. After a short stemming off, Pioneer Trail has lost 500,000 monthly players since late Dec, according to AppData, and who knows what it will take to get those players back.
