For the last year or so, the Gameloft team has been sprinkling a bit of Disney magic across the Early Access scene. But now things are properly coming together as Disney Dreamlight Valley launches in full – and it brings with it another new content expansion pack.
Available today as a full release – as opposed to that of Game Preview/Early Access – is Disney Dreamlight Valley. You’ll find it on all the usual digital storefronts – Xbox, PlayStation and PC. But it’s now also on Apple Arcade too, playable across Mac, iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.
A sprinkling of Disney magic
We’re big fans of Disney Dreamlight Valley, having spent time with it ever since the first Game Preview moments a year back. It’s a game that sprinkles some serious magic to the world and now it looks to do so with even more aplomb. Oh yeah, it does that on Game Pass too.
So how do you play? Well, you’ve certainly got some options. If we take the Xbox Store pages as read, you’ve got the Standard Edition for £24.99. That’s your best bet if you’re looking for a first rung on the ladder experience. But then there’s also the Disney Dreamlight Valley Gold Edition. Weighing in at £58.49, this adds in the new A Rift in Time expansion, 15000 Moonstones and more. Should you be going all-in for your Disney life-sim fix, we’d advise jumping in with this.
That A Rift in Time expansion is also available as a separate purchase. £24.99 is the asking price.
“With today’s global launch, we extend a thank-you to the over 5 million players that have joined us during our Early Access period,” said Matthieu Dupont, Gameloft Montreal Studio Manager. “The engagement and feedback of our community have been the cornerstone to adding new characters and features to Disney Dreamlight Valley. And whether you’re a new addition to the Valley or someone who has been faithfully removing Night Thorns for over a year now, we can’t wait to continue bringing you robust content updates.”
Plenty of extras in Disney Dreamlight Valley full game
For base game players, the full launch brings with it a fresh new update where players can look forward to meeting Jack Skellington from Disney Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. This update also includes the highly anticipated multiplayer feature which allows 2 to 4 players – including yourself – to visit a friend’s Valley and explore , find and trade crafting items, and even buy items at Scrooge McDuck’s Store.
There is also a new Royal Winter Star Path featuring seasonal cosmetic items. That will run through tp January 24th 2024.
Further, today’s launch of the Disney Dreamlight Valley: A Rift in Time paid expansion pass will take players on a journey to Eternity Isle, in an all-new storyline. In the first of three acts, players will be introduced to new Villagers: EVE from Disney and Pixar’s WALL•E, Gaston from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, and Rapunzel from Disney’s Tangled. Those playing the expansion pass within the first week of the release of Disney Dreamlight Valley: A Rift in Time, Disney Dreamlight Valley: Gold Edition, or Disney Dreamlight Valley Arcade Edition will earn bonuses including the Jester Monkey companion and Gilded Royalty Outfit.

Disney Dreamlight Valley Game Description
Disney Dreamlight Valley is a hybrid between a life-sim and an adventure game rich with quests, exploration, and engaging activities featuring Disney and Pixar friends, both old and new. Once an idyllic land, Dreamlight Valley was a place where Disney and Pixar characters lived in harmony—until the Forgetting. Night Thorns grew across the land and severed the wonderful memories tied to this magical place. With nowhere else to go, the hopeless inhabitants of Dreamlight Valley retreated behind locked doors in the Dream Castle. Now it’s up to you to discover the stories of this world and bring the magic back to Dreamlight Valley!
