Disney Speedstorm, the highly successful video game developed by Gameloft with Disney, has reached a new milestone. After a period of early access, the multiplatform racing and combat game has marked its “official release” and is now available in a free-to-play version on PC and console (Nintendo Switch™, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PlayStation®4 (PS4®), PlayStation®5 (PS5®)).
In other news, Disney Speedstorm will soon be available on mobile (pre-order possible on the App Store and Google Play). This is the first Gameloft game to be released on mobile after being launched on console and PC.
Disney Speedstorm puts players from all over the world behind the wheel of go-karts with drivers and tracks inspired by Disney and Pixar films. The catalogue of characters already includes Sulli, Mulan, Mickey Mouse, Belle, Stitch, Buzz Lightyear and Captain Jack Sparrow, each with evolving skills and abilities. The game will continue to expand with the addition of new drivers and tracks from Disney and Pixar. For Season 4, Disney Speedstorm has unveiled ‘The Cave of Wonders’, inspired by the film Aladdin, adding new drivers (Aladdin, the Genie, Jasmine and Jafar), new teammates (Abu, the Flying Carpet, Rajah, Iago, the Sultan and others) and two bonus drivers.
Physical release for Disney Dreamlight Valley
Gameloft has announced a physical release for Disney Dreamlight Valley: the Cozy Edition. This new boxed edition of the game is available for pre-order and will be released in shops by the end of the year on PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch. The Cozy Edition gives access to the Disney Dreamlight Valley game and to exclusive new items. This physical edition is an event for Gameloft, which is used to releasing dematerialized games on digital stores.
Disney Dreamlight Valley, Disney Speedstorm and Gameloft’s recent initiatives mark a strategic shift for the company, which has gone from being a mobile video game publisher to a publisher of games for PC and other platforms.
