Dreams is Entering Early Access on PS4 This Spring
Interested in Media Molecule’s Dreams, but missed out on the recent beta? Well, don’t worry – in a rare move for a first-party developed console game, Dreams will be getting an early access release. Much like the beta, the Dreams Early Access release will focus on the game’s suite of creative tools, with some features, like pre-made levels and content, being missing.
Here’s how Media Molecule describes Dreams Early Access:
Early Access won’t have everything that the full version of Dreams will, but you’ll get 100% of the same Dreams tools that we have used every day at MM to make our content. As well as fun, deep interactive tutorials catering for all skill sets and levels and Mm-crafted arcade games ready to play and remix. If you joined us during the beta period and published your assets, you’ll also have your beta creations to return to. Along the way, we’ll be adding more features, tutorials, arcade levels and assets during the Early Access period as we build towards the full slate of launch content.
Just like with LittleBigPlanet, we have always planned to evolve Dreams with the community and this is just the start. We’ll use Early Access to help us prioritize all the awesome stuff we’re already working on and get feedback as player needs develop and evolve. With refinements, bug fixes and brand new features on the way, we are kicking off the live service side of Dreams so the community can get their first look at how we’ll continue to support the game.
Dreams Early Access will cost $30, and, according to Media Molecule it will be a “limited” release. No word yet on whether those who get on board early will get free access to the full version of Dreams, but that’s how early access usually works.
Dreams Early Access hits PS4 sometime this spring. The full game is slated to launch sometime in 2019. Who's eager to flex their creative muscles?
