Published on September 9, 2022
It seems like every free game these days has some microtransaction users have to do in order to upgrade, and with the recent release of Disney’s Dreamlight Valley Early Access, players are wondering if this game is the same way.
If you’re wondering if there are microtransactions in the world of Disney’s Dreamlight Valley, then you’re in luck because we’re going to answer all your questions and break down the in-game purchases right here.
Are there microtransactions in Disney’s Dreamlight Valley?
Yes, Disney’s Dreamlight Valley will have in-game microtransactions once it exits Early Access and hits live servers next year.
Players can buy real-world money with a currency called Moonstones. Moonstone can only be used to buy cosmetics. Cosmetics are not tied to in-game progress, and instead only affect visuals.
Moonstones can only be used to buy cosmetics, accessories, and other visual changes, so the game isn’t winnable at all. According to the Gameloft Support FAQ, the microtransactions in the game do not affect the core game mechanics in any way.
“You can’t pay to make your garden grow faster, increase or regenerate your energy, increase a character’s friendship level, etc.,” explains the FAQ. “Cosmetic items not related to game development will be available for purchase with Moonstones.”
Not only are the microtransactions in Disney’s Dreamlight Valley essential to progress, but you can earn the only currency in the game, Moonstones, without spending any real-world money.
Moonstones are not currently available in the game, but will be added at some point during Early Access. Any Moonstones purchased during Early Access, including those obtained through the Founder’s Pack, will be transferred to the Live Servers.
Now you know about the microtransactions in Disney’s Dreamlight Valley and what items they allow you to purchase in the game. It’s great that real-world purchases don’t affect in-game progress in any way, meaning your success in Disney’s Dreamlight Valley is only proportional to how much you play and how you spend your time and money in-game.
