Disney Speedstorm is now free to play on all platforms and features an expanded roster of 37 playable characters from across the Disney universe. With an extensive roster of characters at your disposal, you have the opportunity to unlock each one, delve deeper into their unique abilities, and ultimately determine your preferred racer. However, since it is a free-to-play game, players will not have instant access to all the characters.
However, since it is a free-to-play game, players will not have instant access to all the characters, but don’t worry. There are several ways to unlock Disney Speedstorm characters by taking advantage of in-game features and more.
Update: Founder’s Packs are no longer available since the game ended its early access phase on September 28, 2023. When the Founder’s Pack went on sale, it came with additional features including tokens, Golden Pass credits, and early access to several runners. As of now, you can only acquire Early Access character fragments in the store, daily boxes, and timed events.
How to Unlock Disney Speedstorm Characters
Disney Speedstorm characters can generally be unlocked with Shards. Each character has their own unique runner fragment, which initially needs 10 to unlock and upgrade that specific character.
If you are curious about how to earn more shards in the game effectively, these are the best methods you can try:
Starting Circuit Rewards
The Starter Circuit is basically the tutorial for your racing journey, and completing it will grant you three unlockable characters: Mickey, Donald, and Goofy, along with a few other cosmetics and racer-exclusive items. It’s pretty easy, so relax.
There are two multiplayer modes in Disney Speedstorm where you can earn free shards: ranked and ranked. Playing ranked matches with a racer of your choice will eventually reward you with shards as you rank up. The same as with Regulated.
Golden Pass Tier Rewards
This serves as a battle pass for the game and can be upgraded to take advantage of the Premium Pass rewards, which includes shards. However, Golden Pass racer shards will be tied to specific characters depending on the featured racers of the current season. There are plenty of rewards for free and paid access tiers across all 50 tiers, so it’s worth upgrading just to get that seasonal content.
Disney Speedstorm Store
You can spend your coins on shards in the store. There are limited bundles and boxes tied to various Disney titles, which are definitely worth checking out. Increasing the level of your Gold Pass is also a way to earn coins, which you can then spend in the store if there is something worth buying at the time. There is also a free box for daily pickup.
Limited time events
You can simply earn shards and other rewards by completing objectives during timed events from a featured racer.
Seasonal tours are manageable events that take place in multiple chapters and reward fragments, including various other rewards. As you progress through the chapters, you will earn shards that correspond to the racer you are playing as.
