Disney Dreamlight Valley October 19 Update Patch Notes: Scar’s Kingdom of Bug Fixes

Old broke stuff fixed to make room for new broke stuff

by Lucas White

The new Scar’s Kingdom update for Disney Dreamlight Valley is very soon, and there’s a big new list of patch notes to coincide with the update. This patch is set to roll out on October 19, 2022, and will bring a ton of new content to the game including additions to the main story. And all that new content… is not a part of these patch notes. The team at Gameloft is saving that for later, and has dedicated these patch notes entirely to changes, fixes and other tweaks. As an early access game Disney Dreamlight Valley has had plenty of bumps on the road following its launch, and here’s a big list of upcoming fixes.

Disney Dreamlight Valley October 19 Patch Notes

“Top” Fixes

These are designated as the “top fixes” in the notes, marking the biggest deals based on volume of player complaints (I assume):

Improved stability & performance on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch

Improved Founder’s Pack item granting in player mailboxes. This should help resolve some issues which have persisted. The team will continue to investigate additional fixes if any players continue to encounter issues

Improved Cloud Save system. In the case of a Cloud Save conflict, players will now be prompted by an in-game pop-up to select which save file they would like to sync with. A screenshot is included later in these patch notes
