Dreams heads for paid Early Access in spring


Media Molecule has announced that Dreams will enter a paid Early Access programme in “Spring”.

Announcing the move on the PlayStation Blog, Media Molecule said: “We scratched our chins and tried to figure out the best way to put the game in the hands of our most enthusiastic dreamers and allow us to continue crafting and polishing it for everyone. And… we have decided to go live and release Dreams into Early Access on PlayStation 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 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, 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.”

Media Molecule also revealed how much the innovative game-generating software’s Early Access programme will cost, and how it will be made available: “This Dreams Early Access is a strictly Limited Release to ensure that we have a chance to listen to all of you, so be sure to snag your copy as soon as you can! When released, Dreams Early Access will be available digitally through the PlayStation Store and priced at €29.99.”

The only detail still outstanding is a firm availability date. For news of that and anything else Dreams-related, keep an eye on Media Molecule’s website.
