Games of 2022: The promising world of Disney Dreamlight Valley in the works

2022 was full of farming and life simulation games, although Disney Dreamlight Valley stood out from the crowd for me. Even in Early Access (paid or via Xbox Game Pass), the work-in-progress storybook world is already unfolding into a warm and cozy Animal Crossing-esque game. I love its deep customization and unexpected focus on the story – especially the characterful and often hilarious interactions between its heroes and villains. Above all, it’s the game’s promise to keep expanding that intrigued me.

Disney Dreamlight Valley primarily takes place in a collection of biomes that you gradually unlock and tame as you wish, eventually transforming each land into a suitable home for the many Disney and Pixar characters you meet make friends At the heart of all of this is the game’s castle – a hybrid of the iconic Disneyland centerpiece and the hub experience found in Princess Peach’s home from Mario 64.


The full release of Disney Dreamlight Valley isn’t until 2023, but there’s work to be done before then.

Inside this castle you’ll find dozens of portal doors leading to the worlds of Disney and Pixar characters, but only one piece is open to the public – a busy Ratatouille kitchen, Bonnie’s bedroom from Toy Story 3, the enchanted forest from Frozen 2. Here you’ll welcome more Disney faces to your valley as you slowly uncover more of its mysterious story. And here, in the castle, I’m the happiest.

How many more characters will Dreamlight Valley have? How much deeper will his story go? Funnily enough, there are still dozens of doors to be opened, and from trips to the game’s Discord server full of raving fans, millions of Valley residents are waiting to find out and hoping for their favorites. The Disney and Pixar content store is extensive – and why yes, an Aladdin world would be nice, thanks.

If it feels weird looking forward to things that aren’t in the game yet – I get it! It’s a bit like walking past a construction site and being mesmerized by the various skeletons of buildings, pipes and scaffolding, although I know it will turn into a fairly standard block of flats. That said, I also unashamedly enjoy watching how it all comes together over time.

At the moment the game’s roadmap looks relatively simple, with a few more characters already appearing in early trailers (Cinderella and Belle) that will be released before the game reaches its version 1.0. After that, Disney Dreamlight Valley is expected to transition to a free-to-play model, but what that will look like remains to be seen. I’m in with a lot to keep playing for. Will it survive the landing on its full launch? I’m excited to find out.
