Disney Speedstorm to Get a Full Release in September

Disney Games and Gameloft Barcelona have revealed that Disney Speedstorm is scheduled to leave Early Access on September 28, 2023.

On September 28, Disney Speedstorm will become available as a free-to-play game on Switch, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and PC. The development team has incorporated valuable insights gained during the Early Access phase, which commenced on April 18, 2023.

“Since the launch of Early Access, we’ve received invaluable feedback and support from players, which have been instrumental in shaping Disney Speedstorm into the incredible racing experience it is today,” says Aska Suzuki, Game Manager. “Our incredible community’s enthusiasm, dedication, and love for the game have been our inspiration from day one, and we can’t wait to continue this journey together as we enter this exciting new phase.”

Disney Speedstorm release date and editions revealed

At present, the sole method to access Disney Speedstorm in Early Access is through the acquisition of one of the Founder’s Pack bundles, each of which includes exclusive content, time-limited racing suits, kart liveries, in-game tokens and credits, unlocked racers, and various other benefits.

But the available bundles consist of the Standard, Deluxe, and Ultimate editions, and they will be offered at “special discounts ranging from 20% to 30%” on all platforms.

Disney Speedstorm, a kart racing game, adopts a free-to-play model and features a diverse lineup of characters from different Disney properties.

Notable franchises in the game include Mickey and Friends, Pirates of the Caribbean, Monsters, Inc., Toy Story, and Beauty and the Beast. Additionally, various minor Disney characters assume the role of “crew members” who offer stat boosts and other enhancements to characters associated with their respective franchises.

For example, Figment can benefit from the support of Orange Bird as a Crew Member. But the gameplay mechanics closely resemble those in the popular title Mario Kart.

The game’s early access release was met with middling reviews, as IGN gave it a 5 out of 10.
