Disney unveils free-to-play village life sim starring a bunch of classic characters

Thanks to the success of Stardew Valley and its ilk, you can barely move for video games insistently attempting to thrust you into some idyllic digital corner

And now it’s Disney’s turn to get in on the action with its newly announced free-to-play village life sim Dreamlight Valley.

The set-up for Dreamlight Valley goes that, once upon a time, a bunch of Disney and Pixar characters all lived happily together in the idyllic land of the title

Until, that is, a cataclysmic event known as the Forgetting stole everyone’s memories

As Dreamlight Valley unfolds, players will be able to travel to exotic biomes beyond the village and befriend classic Disney and Pixar characters

Including the likes of Elsa and Anna in a snowy, Frozen-inspired kingdom, Ariel in a tropical corner of the world, and even the Lion King crew across a sunny savanna.

Disney is pitching Dreamlight Valley as a live-service-style game that’ll evolve and expand over time, and it’ll be free-to-play when it launches

It’s probably wise to keep expectations in check until we know how Disney and developer Gameloft plans to monetise the game
