PS4's Dreams Release Window Revealed--Sort Of
Media Molecule's Dreams for PS4 has been in the works for a number of years, but until now the closest we had to a release date was merely a vague "2019." Now, the developer has confirmed Dreams will launch in early access this spring.
"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 Media Molecule to make our content," wrote the company's director, Siobhan Reddy, on the PlayStation Blog. "As well as fun, deep interactive tutorials catering for all skill sets and levels, and Media Molecule crafted arcade games ready to play and remix. If you joined us during the beta period, 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."
Reddy goes on to confirm Dreams' early access version is a limited release, meaning Sony will take the game off sale once a certain number of copies have been shifted. This, Reddy says, is to ensure Media Molecule can adequately listen and respond to player feedback.
The early access edition will launch on the PlayStation Store this spring for US $30 / €30, with UK and AU pricing yet to be announced. A precise release date for the early access version has also not been confirmed, while we are no closer to knowing the release window for the game's final version.
Dreams' beta was held in January, and players came up with some wild creations. One person even managed to a battle royale-style game inside Dreams.
