Back in April we first caught wind of Disney Dreamlight Valley, a Sims-like that incorporates a whole host of Disney IP into its fantastical world. Well, we've now been treated to a first glimpse at gameplay and we've got to say, it's looking pretty impressive ahead of its early access launch.
Speaking of which, we've now got a date for that as well. Disney's upcoming sim arrives in early access on September 6th, and its early access period is included in Xbox Game Pass at launch too! That's a nice bonus for us, even if it will eventually go free-to-play sometime in 2023.
The gameplay itself doesn't show a whole lot, but it does showcase some attractive visuals that fit the Disney aesthetic pretty well. There are also plenty of Disney franchises on show here, which is of course the game's big draw.
"In Dreamlight Valley, your adventures are as limitless as your customization options! You will be able to express your fandom by designing Disney and Pixar inspired outfits or by using the vast library of clothing in-game. Your home and village will also not be limited to one layout – you’ll be able to upgrade a number of elements in your dream world by collecting new items and buildings for your villagers."
Are you looking forward to DDV hitting Xbox Game Pass? Let us know below!
At first I saw this was a game with Disney characters and thought “my kids might like this”. Then I saw that it’s a life sim so it’s probably too complicated for them (under 5 years old). And after that I saw the selfie with Ursula scene and heard the trailer say “make friends” I thought “yeah this is stupid”. An Epic Mickey 1 adventure done in this setting is what this should have went for. Not Hipster Sims saves the Disney-verse and let’s “selfie” as we do it.
Disney Rush is what my kids love...will this have mini games like that at all? Do we unlock new areas through playing the mission's or what's going on here? Was kinda interested in it after the kids started playing Rush but now I'm confused what's going on here.
How is paying for early access of a free to play game as win for gamepass?
I mean there’s an argument to be had that we really shouldn’t be paying for these broken early access games as part of our subscription service as it is…but add f2p on top, I just don’t see how that’s a good thing tbh
