  • With the arrival of the Premium Shop, we have adjusted Daily Moonstone chests to increase the number of Moonstones they grant each day. They will now grant 50 Moonstones (previously 10).  
  • Scrooge McDuck General Store has received a shipment of new goods! Got Star Coins from your recent Pumpkin Puff haul burning a hole in your pocket? Keep an eye out for new clothing and furniture items in his stock. 
  • We’ve seen some of your storage rooms and we’re both impressed and scared. Chests that are crafted at Crafting Stations now come in three different varieties, offering larger storage capacities
  • While we appreciate the creative ways you’ve organized your chest hoards, we’ve added a little something to help. Craft customizable signposts to help remind you what’s in a specific chest or mark your fave fishing spot. 
  • Fridges now… fridge (well, minus the cooling). Furniture that is classified as storage – like fridges and cabinets – will now act as basic chest storage
  • Capping off storage-palooza, we’ve added quality of life features that allow you to auto sort your items, as well as quickly transfer items between your inventory and storage with smart transfer
  • Take that house reno back inside! You can now modify the look of doors inside your house based on ones you’ve collected, as well as adjust their placement. 
  • We’ve improved wallpaper management to add more variety in your house. Now, you can adjust wallpaper on a wall-by-wall basis instead of selecting one style for the whole room. 
  • Craft new Role Training Manuals to change the roles of your villagers. Whether you’re maximizing your gardening potential or giving Goofy a new hobby, you don’t have to feel locked into your past decision. 
  • The Valley is more talkative… Don’t worry, we didn’t increase Donald’s tantrums. All characters have gained additional daily discussion topics
  • The g[REDACTED] 
TOP BUG FIXES AND IMPROVEMENTS:   
  • Kristoff’s stall has received a slight overhaul. In previous updates, we made some changes to his stall, with a goal of striking a balance between making the shop more interesting and enticing (i.e. adding iron ore), and ensuring that gathering rare materials isn’t made trivial (i.e. adding a daily limit). We heard your feedback – especially about the change to coal – and kept iterating. As a result, we’ve tweaked the settings a little and brought back something you loved. The daily buy limit has been removed for coal and we’ve increased the buy limit for everything else at the stall (from 3-5 to 10-20). 
  • Miracle Growth Elixir, Miracle Pickaxe Polish, Miracle Shovel Varnish, Miracle Fishing Bait (and their Even More Miraculous alternatives) have had their efficiency increased and the resources required to craft them reduced. 
  • Various optimizations, including performance and stability improvements on all platforms.  
  • The New Game button has moved to the settings menu and is now called Reset Game.

  • “Stitch’s Hobby” quest: The TV in this quest should no longer pose a progression blocker or disappear from the player’s inventory. 
  • Trash-clearing quests: Cleaning trash piles in Goofy and Merlin’s homes should now result in successful progression in these quests. 
  • “A Deal with Ursula” quest: After further investigation of this quest, issues involving placing the crystals on the pedestals should be fixed. 
  • “The Final Trial” quest: Players should now be able to pick up the Falling Water to progress in this quest. 
  • “How Far You’ll Go” quest: The game should no longer crash when initiating a conversation with Moana to give her a fish. 
  • “Magic Moments” quest: Reduced sushi quest requirement to resolve an issue some players were encountering. 
  • “What Home Feels Like” quest: A new fix has been deployed to help resolve the pesky Glittering Herring bug. We will closely monitor this topic alongside the update launch, as we know this quest has been prickly for some players. 
  • “The Definition of a Hero” quest: Making the asphalt and balloon arch should now progress the quest as intended. 
  • “With Great Power” quest: The Crystal Key should no longer disappear or duplicate for players progressing in this quest. 
  • “The Ceremony” quest: Players should now be able to take the final photo without getting stuck on the photo screen. 
  • “A Space Ranger Reputation” quest: Buzz Lightyear and Ursula should now speak with each other, triggering the next step of the quest. 
  • Fixed an issue which was causing some players’ games to freeze when leveling up either the avatar or villager, most notably after talking with them. 
  • Fixed an issue in which villager houses disappear and cannot be recovered. 
  • The crafting menu should now function more reliably as an issue which would cause movement to be disabled after selecting an item and switching tabs has been resolved.

Disney Dreamlight Valley – Ver. ??? (Missions in Uncharted Space)

  • Release date: December 6th 2022 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:
Shrink down for a new Realm adventure!

It’s no secret that a new Realm door is unlocking in the Dream Castle – this time leading you to Bonnie’s room, the current safe haven for a familiar pair of toy-sized heroes; Buzz Lightyear and Woody! What’s more unique is that when entering this Realm, you may find things larger than life – or that you’ve shrunken down to toy-size!

Once Buzz and Woody return to the Village, you will help Woody learn the magic of childhood memories and help Buzz as he enlists the support of Dreamlight Valley’s residents to establish its first Star Command outpost. You’re also in for a surprise as you help uncover the source behind some village mischief alongside Donald Duck, culminating in a new resident from beyond the stars!

A new Star Path begins!

In addition to decorating your Villages with homes for our new heroes from Disney’s Toy Story, you’ll also have plenty of opportunities to get into a festive mood with the release of the new Festive Star Path, filled to the brim with new and exclusive items to help you get cozy and warm in Dreamlight Valley. 

News content

Besides new clothing, furniture, and accessories, the Festive Star Path also includes the all-new Dream Styles feature that allows you to outfit both Mickey Mouse and Merlin in special festive “Dream Style” holiday fashions. 

Seasonal Content

Will you build a snowman, explore the chilly peaks of Frosted Heights, or discover new festive recipes with all your Disney and Pixar friends as you celebrate the holidays together? It’s up to you in Missions in Uncharted Space – but know that we’re not stopping there. With the holidays on the horizon, you can expect festive activities later this December to celebrate the season of giving!

Community Driven Changes

We’re so excited to share this absolutely story and content packed second update with our fans – but what’s more is that we’ve also made sure to listen to your thoughts and take the time to shape the game with our players feedback in mind. Here’s just a few of the changes and additions that you can expect in this Update:

  • We’ve added a Day/Night toggle so that fans from every time zone can choose to enjoy Dreamlight Valley’s sunsets and sunrises as they choose! This is a visual change only, and will not affect gameplay. 
  • Previously unlocked by players in our Wishlist Campaign (link to blog article) – the first Character Skins are available in the Valley! You can find two new ‘Dreamlight Styles’ for Merlin and Mickey available in the Festive Star Path.
  • Worried about the environmental concerns of leaving your lights on in your home? You can now toggle floor/wall lights on and off. 
  • You can now hang out with Ariel! We can’t wait to see your adventures together.
  • It looks like Kristoff expanded his stall offerings – you’ll now find other purchasable materials on sale, including iron ingots. 
  • Want to unlock your entire Star Path immediately? Optional Moonstone packages are now available for purchase.
  • Socks.
IMPROVEMENTS & OPTIMIZATION 
  • Optimized game stability on all platforms. In particular, we put a considerable focus on optimizing the experience on Nintendo Switch, which players should find smoother now. We will continue to evaluate the performance of each platform and push for further improvements and optimizations in upcoming updates as part of Early Access. 
  • It’s getting chilly outside, so we’ve updated many of the fireplaces in Dreamlight Valley to allow you to manually light them. Exceptions include the Horned Tavern Fireplace, Cozy Fireplace, Antique Furnace, and Celestial Fireplace. 
  • Kristoff has expanded the inventory of his stall to include a wider range of items (Pssst… there may be some iron ingots in there). 
  • Improved wood distribution across all biomes. This change will make it so that the wood you find in each biome feels less random. While spawn rates will be slightly less frequent than before, each biome will now have a fixed set of wood that can spawn and will appear in consistent amounts, taking the guesswork out of gathering. 
  • Buffed critter stomachs to allow for even more treat sharing. It is now possible to feed critters multiple times per day. 
  • Reduced game loading times across all platforms. 
  • Reduced game installation size. 
  • Improved the loading of in-game assets to provide players with better performance. 
  • Deployed optimizations to reduce chances of frame drops which were caused by certain animations. 
  • Improved performance and memory usage of large gardens (50+ plants) while gardening. 
  • Removed “dried plant” VFX to improve game performance. 
  • Optimized various VFX to improve game performance. 
  • Fixed memory leaks which led to reduced performance and crashes in certain circumstances. 
  • Improved Item limits feedback in Furniture Edit Mode by adding a second on-screen counter. The top counter tracks the number of different items placed in the Valley, while the bottom counter tracks the total number of items, including duplicates. This should provide more clarity when reaching these limits, as like before, hitting either limit will prevent players from placing any more items in their Valley – unique items or total items respectively – until they remove items to make space. 
BUG FIXES 
  • All avatars now have the same animation speeds. Specifically, you will notice that crop watering and cooking animations have been updated to reflect this. 
  • We’ve confirmed that critters are not conspiring against you. Critters that have been befriended through feeding will now correctly appear in the Collection menu. 
  • Camera-shy no more! The avatar will now always look at the camera when in selfie mode. 
  • Fixed a soft-lock which sometimes occurred when pressing the Return to Title Screen button. 
  • The Collection menu now updates correctly when new resources are collected. 
  • “A Deal with Ursula” quest: Players who previously had picked up the Dark Crystal should now be able to complete the quest. 
  • “Photo Fervor” quest: The Elephant Graveyard can now be properly photographed. 
  • “The Dreamlight Fountain” quest: The Celebration Ribbon will now be properly recognized when placed close to the fountain. 
  • “Part of His World” quest: Players who were encountering a blocker will find the Nautilus consumable has been given back, which should unlock progression. 
  • “Lair Sweet Lair” quest: When Goofy redecorated his house, he accidentally misplaced a quest-critical piece of paper. It has been recovered and returned to its expected position in his house. 
  • “Peacemakers” quest: Improved collision issues with palm trees to reduce the chance of Leader Shards and other items getting caught in them.

Disney Dreamlight Valley – Ver. ??? (Scar’s Kingdom Update)

  • Release date: October 19th 2022 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:
Changes / Additions

In ‘Scar’s Kingdom’, the iconic savannah of the Sunlit Plateau is in peril! The Pillar of Nurturing, once the key to keeping the Plateau vibrant and green, has dried up and is blocked by mysterious and dark magic. In order to bring the Plateau back to life, you’ll team up with Scar – the would-be usurper of the Pride Lands who was trapped while The Forgetting ravaged Dreamlight Valley. You may want to equip your Royal Pickaxe too, as you’ll be headed to a new area deep within the Plateau’s mines to restore the Pillar of Nurturing and find the source of the problem, all while dealing with Scar’s less-than-honest motivations.

Introducing the Villain Star Path

In addition to Scar’s Kingdom content, you will find a new Star Path awaiting you on the Events page – this time, with a nefarious flair! You will need to tap into your dark side and befriend the villains living in the Valley, or perhaps just skulk around alongside them. As you complete event duties, you’ll be rewarded with tokens that you can spend on exclusive items inspired by Halloween and Disney villains. Sometimes, it’s good to be bad. 

Seasonal Content

With Halloween on the horizon, you will find new items in the Scrooge Shop and new craft-able items at your workbench. We also have a few tricks and treats planned – stay tuned for more news soon! 

 

Community Driven Changes

With all the new story, seasonal and Star Path content that has been included in Update 1, we wanted to take a moment to recognize some of the changes that we’ve made to the game based off Community feedback. Listening to the feedback of our passionate Community in the Early Access period is incredibly important to our team and the future of the game. We’re so thankful for everyone who’s taken the time to share their thoughts with us, be it their experiences or feature suggestions! Here’s just a few of the changes and additions that you can expect in Update 1:

  • We’ve changed the way that lightning appears in-game due to an accessibility concern for many players.
  • We hope that everyone can now enjoy the in-game storms! Plants watered by rain showers will remain watered afterwards – so now even your plants will enjoy the rain much more now.
  • Get ready to twin with Ariel and match your hair to even more outfits! We’ve added more hair color options for you to play around with.
  • We know how much love you have for your animal companions, so we’ve added a way for you to interact with them! Go give your pets some well-deserved attention for following you around while you planted 99 Okra.
  • Donald Duck has finally found his land-legs. You’ll find that he’s less clumsy, and less likely to trip and have a tantrum.
  • Remember the Avatar Designer Tool? You shared with us that you loved the photo mode – so we’ve added many of the same features to Disney Dreamlight Valley! We can’t wait to see all your new pics!
