The first major content patch for the life-simulation adventure game Disney Dreamlight Valley is now available on all platforms.

The Scar’s Kingdom Update, as you can already tell, brings the nefarious Scar to Disney Dreamlight Valley. In addition, you will be exploring the memorable Sunlit Plateau as you investigate the mysterious dark magic that envelopes this once-vibrant place.

There’s also a new Star Path that provides you with new Halloween-inspired cosmetics, perfect for this season. However, you have to be willing to tap into your dark side if you are to complete all of the new event duties.
