Gameloft has released the “A Festival of Friendship” update for the Early Access version of Disney Dreamlight Valley, which adds new friends, features, and more.
Get the details below.
As of right NOW, Disney Dreamlight Valley‘s third free, major content update, “A Festival of Friendship” is live on all platforms! Expect new friends, new features, and just a hint of frost and Forgetting—but more on that later.
Disney Centennial Celebration
We’re joining in on Disney’s 100th anniversary celebrations with a Dreamlight twist! The first Star Path of 2023 celebrates the legacy of Disney’s many years of creativity and imagination. By completing duties centered around Mickey and the game’s roster of Disney and Pixar friends, you’ll have the opportunity to claim clothing and furniture inspired by real-world Disney100 items. You’ll also be able to dress up Minnie and Mickey in new Dream Styles based off their Disney Parks Centennial outfits!
The Frosted Heights Get Even More Frosty
Break out your warmest outfit before heading north in this update! A puzzling blizzard has taken over the Frosted Heights—and it’s up to you to uncover its origins. While working alongside Merlin and Elsa to dissipate the wintry chaos, you’ll also ‘make’ a new friend who’s a fan of warm hugs—Olaf from Disney’s Frozen!
The Power of Friendship
Olaf isn’t the only new friend to meet in this update. Once you find the ‘key’ to Mini-Casita, Mirabel from Disney’s Encanto will join your Valley! You will need to harness both the power of friendship and Dreamlight to undo the effects the Forgetting has had on Mini-Casita. Mirabel’s unique skills in resolving family conflicts will also play a key role in restoring harmony back to Dreamlight Valley.
A New Way to Play!
This newest update also marks the launch of the in-game Premium Shop! Players can exchange their Moonstones for an exclusive rotation of cosmetic items that will not be sold elsewhere. Go shopping for premium clothing, furniture, or even change the appearance of your house into a cottage or a palace.
Of course, that hasn’t stopped Scrooge McDuck from adding additional brand-new items to his store! Sell off those pumpkins you’ve been holding onto and make sure you have some Star Coins set aside for new furniture and clothing items.
Community Driven Features
As always, we’re so excited to see you dive into all of the new content coming in this update—but we also wanted to take the time to share more about some of the new features that have been included, inspired by your comments and feedback! Here’s just a few of the changes and additions that you can expect in this update:
- Storage Optimization – We know that many of our players can’t leave things nailed to the floor—that’s why we’re happy to share that you will have access to a plethora of new storage options! As of this update, you’ll be able to craft additional tiers of storage chests to suit your collecting needs and utilize other furniture (such as fridges and dressers) as storage spaces.
- Clearer Labeling System – While we loved watching you label your chests by leaving fish on the floor or piling hoards of items on tables, we’ve created a clearer labeling system! With the addition of a new craftable signpost, players can choose from a variety of labels to organize their Valleys.
- House Skins – House skins are HERE! In addition to new House Dream Styles available for purchase in the Premium Shop, you’ll be able to change the color of your house (once your home is fully upgraded) to a variety of colorways for FREE from the Furniture Menu.
- Update to Interior Doors – You’ll now be able to change the interior doors in your homes once you’ve fully upgraded your home. What’s more is that you can change their placements as well! Note that any doors placed previously will automatically be added back to your furniture inventory.
That’s not all! In addition to these features, there are many other features and improvements we have included in this update. For a more exhaustive list, please check out our previous blog article here.
Bug Issues and Resolutions
Finally, yet importantly, we are continuously releasing many fixes for top issues that were reported by the Disney Dreamlight Valley community. We want to extend a huge thank you to everyone who reported their issues, but also for everyone’s patience while we work to resolve them.
As the game is still in early access, we will continue to do our best to address issues as they occur, and proactively prevent further bugs. For a full list of what has been included in this Update, please see here.
Disney Dreamlight Valley is available now in paid Early Access for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC and Mac via Steam, Epic Games Store, Microsoft Store, and Mac App Store, as well as via Xbox Game Pass. A full free-to-play launch is due out in 2023.
