Disney’s Next Pixar Crossover Adventure is a Free Life Simulator
Today, Gameloft announced the upcoming release of Dream Light Valleya life-simulation adventure game featuring the worlds and characters of Disney and Pixar.
By IGN, Dream Light Valley is set in the eponymous town following a mysterious event called The Forgetting, which caused the assortment of Disney and Pixar characters who lived there to lose their memories. Adjacent to the event, the village became filled with strange plants called Night Thorns. It will be up to the players to help the townspeople recover their memories and eliminate the particular affliction.
Dream Light Valley lets players interact with their favorite characters from Disney and Pixar’s massive character roster, encouraging them to form friendships to help them regain their memories. As a life simulator, players can also fully customize their character, including a number of clothing and hair options inspired by Disney movies. They can even build a house in Dreamlight Valley and customize towns in various Disney-themed locations.
In addition to customization, players can join characters like Goofy, Ariel, Mickey, Simba, Moana, and Remy in numerous mini-games and activities. Some of the highlights include fishing, cooking, exploring, mining, and gardening, many of which are staples of simulation games like The Sims, although perhaps less complicated. Contrary to The Simsyet, Dream Light Valley is a free adventure.
It’s not yet clear what players can expect to see for microtransactions in Disney’s upcoming game. However, early previews pointed to a “fairly unaggressive monetization” present in the game, which is somewhat unusual among free-to-play titles, which often appear to be paid. That means they are purely cosmetic like Marvel’s Midnight Suns or if they will have banned the gameplay remained to be seen. Other early reports point to an “optimistic” level of customization available, replayability, and the possibility of seeing more Disney and Pixar characters and worlds added to the game in the future.

So far, announced platforms for the title include Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, and PC and Mac via Steam, Epic Games Store, Microsoft Store, and the App Store.
