Disney-themed runner Disney Speedstorm will launch in Early Access next month

Disney Speedstorm, the new Disney-themed racer from the studio behind Disney’s Dreamlight Valley, is starting its engines for an early access launch next month.

The free-to-play runner, which was supposed to release last year before being pushed back to April 2023, will release on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store, Switch and PlayStation and Xbox consoles.

To participate in the Early Access build before final release, players will need to purchase a Founder’s Pack (Opens in a new tab).

Depending on which Founder’s Pack you’re willing to pay for, you’ll get a combination of In-Game Tokens, Gold Pass Credits, and an Unlocked Pilot of your choice (as long as your choice is Baloo, Belle, The Beast, Elizabeth Swann, Mowgli or Shang). Other pre-order avatars, outfits, slogans and sweeteners are also available.

Disney Speedstorm will be free-to-play, with new seasons of content “added regularly”, bringing more characters, tracks, karts and more. If you’re playing with friends, split-screen and online multiplayer will be featured with cross-play capabilities.

From the looks of the trailers we’ve seen so far, players will be able to compete on various themed race tracks based on classic Disney movies like Pirates of the Caribbean, Monsters Inc., and of course , being able to do so as a variety of iconic Disney and Pixar mascots.

Have you played the other Gameloft Disney game?

“Disney Dreamlight Valley is like Animal Crossing with more story and less of a wait,” Sam wrote in our Disney Dreamlight Valley “initial verdict” review (opens in a new tab).

“However, the excellent quality of life means a lot less faff than Nintendo’s life sim; your watering can is never empty, tools never dull or break, and stamina can be renewed by chewing on a handful of berries, which are abundant in the valley. There is a day and night cycle which is related to yours, but very little is limited to waiting for the next physical day, à la Animal Crossing.

“And what’s more, Gameloft is already ironing out the game’s rough edges in its initial Early Access release on September 6, with updates, fixes, and more to address community feedback.”
