Better together

Once Disney Dreamlight Valley exited its early access period, Multiplayer mode was introduced into the game and now you can host friends (or strangers, if you’re that way inclined) to your island for fun and it turns out there’s some benefits to being sociable.

How to unlock Multiplayer in Disney Dreamlight Valley

Before you can unlock Multiplayer, you’ll need to do two things:

  • Complete Scrooge McDuck’s quest, called “The Haunting of Dreamlight Valley”
  • Complete Vanellope’s quest, called “Faith, Trust and Pixel Dust”

Once you’ve done these two quests and invited Vanellope to join you in the Valley, she’ll have a new quest called “Valley Visits”

During this quest, she’ll give you the KL-1200 Valley Visit Station, which you’ll need to place in your Valley before interacting with it to unlock Multiplayer.

Once you’ve got the KL-1200 Valley Visit Station placed, interact with it and select “Open a connection for Valley Visits”. You’ll shortly be given a six-digit code that others can input in the Multiplayer tab of the Start Menu in order to come and play with you.

Unfortunately, you’re severely limited when it comes to things you can do while playing with others. You can’t:

  • Destroy Night Thorns or Splinters of Fate
  • Talk to villagers
  • Complete duties or quests
  • Use tools, including Camera
  • Talk to or interact with each other in-game

However, regardless of these limitations, all players can still visit Scrooge’s store, where visiting players can purchase items, as long as you’ve not purchased them yourself already, and pick up items such as flowers.

The main draw of Multiplayer, though, is Pixel Shards. These items will drop periodically while you’re exploring the Valley together though sometimes they can take a little while to show up. Each player will get their own personal Pixel Shard spawns, so don’t worry about having to share the loot.

Pixel Shards can be used to craft three items: 

  • Glitchy Pixel Duplicate
    • Can be used when crafting to replace some missing ingredients
  • Pixelized cooking flame
    • Doubles the output of the next five recipes cooked
  • Superior pixelized cooking flame
    • Doubls the output of the next 12 recipes cooked
