Dreams will launch for PlayStation 4 via the PlayStation Store in Early Access this spring for $29.99 / CAD$39.99, publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer Media Molecule announced. This will be a “strictly limited release,” so be sure to buy it while you can if you are interested.
Here is an overview of Early Access, via the PlayStation Blog:
What is Creator Early Access?
Early Access won’t have everything that the full version of Dreams will, but you’ll get 100 percent of the same Dreams tools that we have used every day at Media Molecule to make our content. 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 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.
In Early Access, you can stream, entertain, teach, collaborate, and share to your heart’s content.
Who is Early Access for?
Early Access is for creators who want to be part of the Dreams experience from the beginning. People who will create, play others creations, get involved in the social features of Dreams and give us feedback. If you are a creator, this is definitely for you. The Dreamiverse needs curators, tastemakers, and testers—this is a great opportunity to carve out your niche. The most important thing is to know that the Dreamiverse is going to form around you, so if that gets you excited, Early Access is for you. If you participated in the beta and felt like Dreams wasn’t fully featured enough for you yet, or you wanted more Media Molecule game content, then Early Access might not be for you. We’re working on all those things during this period so that you have everything you need on your first day in the Dreamiverse.
