Developer Gameloft has announced a new, free to play adventure game and life simulator called Disney Dreamlight Valley. Set in a world featuring all the popular Disney and Pixar characters in one place, Dreamlight Valley invites players to rebuild the village after it was left ruined thanks to something known as The Forgetting. Gameloft describes the game in greater detail:
“Arriving in the dream world of Dreamlight Valley, players will embark on an enchanting quest to restore a once-idyllic village now desolate and full of Night Thorns after a mysterious event called The Forgetting. Uncover the mysterious secrets that led you to this new world and explore diverse realms inspired by classic Disney and Pixar worlds, while helping the iconic inhabitants of the town recover their lost memories. In this experience, players will meet and build friendships with beloved characters from Mickey & Friends to Disney’s The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, and Moana to Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story and more. Dive in and immerse in a multitude of unique individualized story arcs and enjoy activities with some of the village’s most memorable characters, such as whipping up a delectable Disney-themed dishes alongside Remy from Disney and Pixar’s Ratatouille inside of your own village restaurant, fishing at the fishing hole with Goofy, or growing vegetables from Wall•E’s garden patch.”
Players will be able to design the Disney and Pixar villages of their dreams across multiple unique biomes, ranging from the snowy mountains of the Frosted Heights to the Peaceful Meadow and beyond – with a wealth of customization options for their avatars, homes, and villages. The game will feature an ever-evolving list of Disney-princess-inspired ballgowns, Mickey-adorned streetwear, Frozen-inspired antique kitchen designs, and more.”
Disney Dreamlight Valley will launch for PlayStation and Xbox consoles, Nintendo Switch, and PC and Mac on the Epic Games Store, Mac App Store, and Steam in 2023. Players can purchase a Founders Pack or subscribe to Xbox Game Pass to enter Early Access this summer.
