It's no surprise that the game is doing so well, it combines everything we love about all our favorite life sims with the magic of Disney - what more could you want? As mentioned in the tweet above, this is just the start of Disney Dreamlight Valley. Earlier this week, the game's developer Gameloft revealed a roadmap that includes a The Lion King and Toy Story-themed updates, both due before the end of the year. 

In other Disney Dreamlight Valley news, Gameloft also rolled out the game's first official patch (opens in new tab) this week, which has made minor changes to the game, including balance adjustments, bug fixes, stability fixes, altered customization options, and more. You can see a full breakdown of the changes on the Disney Dreamlight Valley website (opens in new tab)

With more and more players heading to the valley, we're seeing a lot of community reactions to each of the Disney characters featured in the game. Some of our favorites include the players who are asking Gameloft to enrol Donald Duck into some anger management classes due to his outrageous temper. Others ask for Goofy to understand personal space, and some players even describe Disney Dreamlight Valley as a horror game when Mickey Mouse is around.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
