Media Molecule will offer a $29.99 ‘limited release’ to creators

Dreams content from early access Media Molecule/Sony Interactive Entertainment

Dreams draws closer to its long-awaited full release, with a private beta most recently giving players a chance to test out the virtual creative suite. Next up is an early access version of Media Molecule’s game-creation game for PlayStation 4 in the spring.

The early access period is aimed at those most eager to create things in the world of Dreams. For $29.99, players will “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,” the developer wrote in a blog post.

Expect the available options to mirror those from the recent beta, although Media Molecule will expand the offerings along the way. Content published during the beta will be included at launch.

You can now sign up on the PlayStation website for updates on the early access period. Media Molecule says Dreams’ early access version will be a “strictly limited” release, although it will accept more players than the beta did. Dreams has a surprising amount of accessibility and breadth, though, even in its more restricted state. The fully featured version will pack in even more gameplay, and is due later this year.

Update: The registration link above is to receive updates about the early access period, not to sign up for it. We’ve updated the story above to reflect this.
