Ever wonder what it would be like to wake up one day and find yourself living across from Mickey Mouse or walking to the beach to find Moana preparing to set sail on her boat? Starting in summer 2022, you can live out your magical Disney and Pixar dreams on an adventure that features some of your favorite characters! Video game developer Gameloft has collaborated with Disney and Pixar Games on the upcoming free-to-play life-simulation adventure game, Disney Dreamlight Valley. You are invited to create a personalized avatar and embark on an enchanting journey to save the dream world of Dreamlight Valley and the memories of its iconic roster of heroes and villains.
Step into the magical world of Dreamlight Valley where you will arrive in a once-idyllic village, now desolate and full of night thorns. Unravel the 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 free-to-play experience, you will meet and build friendships with memorable characters from “Mickey & Friends” to Disney’s “The Lion King,” “The Little Mermaid,” and “Lilo and Stitch” to Disney and Pixar’s “Toy Story,” “Wall•E” and more.
Express your fandom by designing the Disney and Pixar villages of your dreams across multiple unique locations, ranging from the snowy mountains of Frosted Heights to the Peaceful Meadowand beyond. One of the most exciting game features you’ll experience in Disney Dreamlight Valleyincludes the extensive level of customization you will encounter while creating your own personalized avatar, homes, and villages. Embrace your creative freedom with an ever-evolving list of Disney-princess-inspired ball gowns, Mickey Mouse-adorned streetwear, “Frozen”-inspired antique kitchen designs, and much more.
Journey throughout the realms and discover unique character story arcs as part of your village experience. Activities such as fishing, gardening, and cooking take on new meaning as you share them with beloved characters. Whip up delectable Disney-themed dishes alongside Remy from Disney and Pixar’s “Ratatouille” inside of your own village restaurant, fish at the fishing hole with Goofy, and grow vegetables in Wall•E’s garden patch.
Ahead of the free-to-play launch, starting in summer 2022, Disney Dreamlight Valley will be available in Early Access for players who purchase a Founder’s Pack or have an Xbox Game Pass membership.
