Here’s everything you need to know about Disney Dreamlight Valley, including its story, featured characters, release date, and what platforms it can be played on.
What is Disney Dreamlight Valley all about?
Disney Dreamlight Valley is a free-to-play, life-simulation game developed by Gameloft. It features a cast of characters from the Disney and Pixar universe, similar to Square Enix’s hit RPG Kingdom Hearts.
Once a place where good and evil characters lived together in harmony, Dreamlight Valley fell into darkness with The Forgetting, a supernatural event that plagued the village with Night Thorns.
You enter the story as a new neighbor, ready to combat The Forgetting and find your place in the magical community.
Gameplay of Disney Dreamlight Valley
Dreamlight Valley delivers a sandbox experience with customization options for your character, their clothing, and the house that they live in. As the new person in town, you’ll also aid others in renovating and adding new furniture and landmarks to public spaces.
Players can explore numerous themed Realms such as a tropical island from Moana and a snowy mountain village from Frozen. Each world will feature Disney and Pixar heroes and villains with their own story arcs and quest lines.
You can also look out for NPCs that offer other types of fun activities. Familiar characters like Goofy and Remy will invite you to a fishing trip or a culinary lesson respectively.
