Gameloft hosted their first-ever Showcase stream for Disney Dreamlight Valley (above, starts around 15:00). The stream detailed the game’s upcoming launch, first expansion pass, and plans for 2024.

Disney Dreamlight Valley will leave Early Access and officially launch on December 5, alongside the first paid expansion, A Rift in Time.

A Rift in Time ($29.99) will add a new story across the three biomes of new region, Eternity Isle. The expansion will roll out in three different waves over the coming months, each wave adding a new biome and a new act.

In Eternity Isle, the villainous Jafar has been up to no good, and his current scheme has created some time-related problems.

Thankfully the player gains access to the Royal Hourglass, a large scepter that can manipulate time and restore the Isle, as well as unlock ancient machines that can automate daily tasks.

Eternity Isle, which is about half desert, half jungle, will add Rapunzel, Gaston, and Eve as newcomers to the Valley. With all three biomes, Eternity Isle is about as large as the original Valley, and includes its own separate item limit.

The expansion also adds a new in-game board game called Scramblecoin, as players collect character figures and move around a board collecting coins and unlocking new figures.

The global launch will also include a free update, The Pumpkin King Returns, adding Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas.

The other big news coming at launch is — multiplayer! Up to four player will be able to visit each other’s custom Valleys, as well as trade items.

Other new content coming later in 2024 includes a Monsters, In-themed update in Early 2024, and Tiana from Princess and the Frog around mid-year. Updates will include new Villagers, Realms, and Star Paths.

Disney Dreamlight Valley is also launching on Apple Arcade, including iPhone, iPad, and Mac. The Arcade Edition will include the expansion and all updates, though no seasonal Star Paths or premium shop.

Disney Dreamlight Valley is available on PC (Steam), PlayStation, Switch, and Xbox. It’s rated E for Everyone.
