Dreamlight Valley is Disney’s first take on Life Simulation!

This week is the week of new Life Simulation game announcements! Earlier this week, we reported on the upcoming multiplayer life simulation game Vivaland. Now, a new Disney themed life simulation game has been announced. And this time, it’s by a much bigger, longstanding studio.

Disney Dreamlight Valley is a combination of a life simulation game with elements of an adventure game rolled into one. The game includes a variety of quests, exploration and in game activities while being surrounded by many familiar Disney and Pixar faces.

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!
