Disney Dreamlight Valley Has Finally Left Early Access And The First Paid Expansion Is Out Now

So much new stuff!

Disney Dreamlight Valley has officially entered its full release as of today, shedding the “early access” label and, in a change from what developer Gameloft had originally planned, staying a paid product.

As of now, new editions of the game are available, including a standard and “Gold Edition,” the latter of which includes the base game and Expansion Pass along with exclusive added items. Gameloft has said anyone who’s purchased a Founder’s Pack before December 4th will also receive the Gold Edition exclusive items.

This release also brings with it another sizeable update for the game, including its first paid content expansion, dubbed A Rift in Time, which adds an entirely new island complete with three distinct biomes for players to inhabit and invite along their favourite Disney characters, as well as an all-new storyline to play through. Today also marks the first iteration of multiplayer in The Valley, allowing players to visit each others’ worlds and even exchange items.

You can see Gameloft’s list of updates to the game as of today including the top bug fixes and changes right here, but below are some of the highlights in terms of new content and features:
