It’s been a busy month for Gameloft and their Early Access launch of Disney Dreamlight Valley. With over one million players, plenty of Disney fans have been discovering the magic hidden in Dreamlight Valley.

Of course, with all that magic, there are bound to be a few bugs. DDV already saw an update earlier this month, and future fall updates have been confirmed thanks to a gaming showcase panel at Disney’s official D23 Expo 2022. Still, Gameloft wants to keep players in the loop and made an announcement this week on DDV’s official social media channels (Twitter, Discord, etc.). In it, the next big update is targeted to be released in 3 weeks and will fix a number of issues (including a number of Quest glitches) and will be adding Scar (from The Lion King) to the game. Here are the full details:


  • Patch Timing
    • The next bug fixes will be released as part of the first content update featuring Scar, this fall. While we can’t share exact timing yet, we are targeting a release in around 3 weeks.
