Is Disney Dreamlight Valley cross-platform?

Mixing the addictive gameplay of a life-sim like Animal Crossing with the world of Disney was guaranteed to result in a hit. Disney Dreamlight Valley had been in early access for a few years while it added in more content, characters, quests, and tons of items. Even now that it is out, Gameloft has no plans to abandon its loyal players. Even in its early access state, Disney Dreamlight Valley has always been available on all platforms, but as of December 2023, the game got a massive multiplayer update. Farming and questing with friends in the Valley is the best way to play, but how robust is its cross-platform support?

Is Disney Dreamlight Valley cross-platform?

Unfortunately, the answer to this question is a little complicated. The easy part is that Disney Dreamlight Valley allows for cross-saves between all platforms, which include PlayStation, Xbox, PC, Mac, and Switch. Feel free to start on any platform and migrate to another later.

Crossplay, on the other hand, has one strange restriction. Disney Dreamlight Valley supports crossplay between all platforms except for PlayStation players. That means PlayStation players are only able to play with other people on PlayStation, while everyone else can join regardless of platform. There has been no word on whether this restriction will be removed in the future, but hopefully PlayStation players will be able to join in on the fun with everyone else soon. Thankfully, since you can move your save easily, you don’t have to start over if you began on PlayStation and want to take advantage of crossplay on other platforms.

Stardew Valley 1.6 update: everything you need to know
get clay in stardew valley home

For a game made by a single person, Stardew Valley has an unbelievable amount of content already. Despite that, years after launch, we're all still eagerly anticipating yet another content update coming to the game that will bring it to version 1.6. This update was announced in April 2023 but ConcernedApe has been rather tight-lipped on the full scope of features and additions this update will bring. With so many possibilities and rumors floating around, we've collected only the freshest bits of info you need to know about what you can look forward to.
When is the 1.6 update coming out?

The 1.6 Stardew Valley update will be available on March 19 for PC players. As far as console and mobile players are concerned, we don't know when you can get this update just yet as ConcernedApe simply stated that they "will follow as soon as possible."

Is Palworld cross-platform?
A Tocotoco in Palworld.

Palworld, the new creature-collecting survival game that fans have dubbed "Pokémon with guns," has become a viral hit on launch day. With Pokémon being a Nintendo console-exclusive franchise (and one of the most successful video game franchises of all time), it's no surprise that gamers who stick to other platforms are eager for the chance to capture and battle with oddball creatures in an open-world setting.

The jury is still out on whether Palworld is going to last or if its launch day sales figures are the result of it becoming a Pokémon clone meme since it was announced. Regardless, now is the best time to jump in while everyone else is learning about the world. You don't want to fall behind.

Disney Dreamlight Valley leaves early access in December, but won’t be free
Goofy, Donald, and the player complete making something in Disney Dreamlight Valley.

Gameloft confirmed that its Disney life sim Disney Dreamlight Valley will finally leave early access on December 5 alongside the release of its A Rift in Time expansion. That said, Gameloft also confirmed one big change: Disney Dreamlight Valley will no longer be free-to-play when it comes out.

Disney Dreamlight Valley entered early access in September 2022 as a cozy life sim game inspired by games like Stardew Valley and Animal Crossing: New Horizons. It has received a steady stream of content updates since, and Gameloft finally decided that it's time for the game to leave early access. Disney Dreamlight Valley will finally do so this December.
The blog post announcing that date confirms that "existing players will keep their access to the game, their Moonstones, and their save game" when Disney Dreamlight Valley launches. One thing that won't be happening is Disney Dreamlight Valley going free-to-play.
When the game was announced, Gameloft's original intention was to have a paid early access period for what would then transition to a free-to-play game. Gameloft decided to reverse that decision, so Disney Dreamlight Valley's base game will remain priced at $30 after its December 5 launch. "This choice ensures that Disney Dreamlight Valley will be able to continue delivering on a premium game experience for all players," Gameloft explains in a blog post. "It's important to us that we maintain our promise to keep delivering free content updates that add new characters, realms, clothing, furniture, and more surprises to your Valley."
Microtransactions will remain in the game after launch despite the fact that Disney Dreamlight Valley is no longer a free-to-play game. Gameloft says in-game purchases "will remain optional, fair, and match the level of quality players have come to expect."
Disney Dreamlight Valley will exit early access across PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch on December 5.
