Dreams Early Access Begins April 16

Participants will get hands-on with new features and content as Media Molecule adds it.

Hello, CoMmunity! There’s one big piece of information we need to share with you about Early Access and of course, that’s when it’s happening!

So, without further ado, we’re thrilled to announce:

Dreams Early Access Starts April 16, 2019!

We can’t wait to welcome you in to get creating and be able to have a game jam with all of you! We’ve been working on Dreams for a long time now and the core of Dreams — the creation bit — is ready. There is so much we want to do with and add to Dreams — but to start, we want players to be able to see their creations on their own TV screen and be able to have all the tools they need to make games or stories or art or music accessible from their couch.

The future for Dreams is exciting. We hope that Early Access gives us the feedback we need to make Dreams an amazing space for creators and players alike for years to come. We know you may still have questions. We’ve highlighted some key points below to help you navigate Early Access and beyond!

What is included in Early Access?
Early Access is exactly that. Early entry into Dreams, designed for creators to get hands on with the tools. It won’t feature everything that the full release will have (our story mode being a big piece of that) but you’ll get our full tool set for creating, our interactive tutorials and arcade games, templates and additional content created by Media Molecule and access to what you, the CoMmunity, made during our Dreams Creator Beta. You’ll also be getting the first hands-on with new features and content as we add them.

When is Dreams Early Access launching?
Dreams Early Access will be launching April 16!

How much will Dreams Early Access cost?
Dreams Early Access will cost $29.99 MSRP (+applicable tax) in the US and $39.99 MSRP (+applicable tax) in Canada.

Which territories will Dreams Early Access be available for?
Initially, Dreams Early Access will be available in the US, Canada and all European territories.

What languages will be supported by Dreams Early Access?
At launch, Dreams Early Access will be in English and French in North America.

How do I participate in Dreams Early Access?
That’s an easy one! You’ll be able to purchase Dreams Early Access from PlayStation Store on April 16, 2019.

Can I pre-order Early Access?
No, but you can sign up for updates here.

If I buy Dreams Early Access, does that mean I get access to the full version of the game when it’s released, without paying any extra / twice?
Early Access is intended for Creators who will participate and contribute to Dreams Early Access, and in return, will have the full version of Dreams upon release.

….and when would that be? ;)
Ooo, cheeky! We don’t have a release date for the full version of Dreams to share right now. But when we do, you’ll know about it! And then we’ll keep telling you. And then probably tell you another 5,672 times.

Will my Early Access / Beta creations carry over to the full game?
Yes. Early Access is the launch of the creation tools of Dreams and this will then roll into the full version of the game.

Will Early Access include VR?
Dreams VR is not included in the initial Early Access offering. It’s still planned for Dreams and we’re super excited for it. We’ll be sure to share more details about it as soon as we’re ready.

Is there any NDA for Early Access?
No! You can stream, share and create to your heart’s content.

How can I stay up-to-date on everything Dreams?
We’ll update you on all things Dreams as and when new things happen! We’ll detail new features through blogs, streams and on our social channels, as well as on our feedback forums on indreams.me.

Is there a cap to Early Access? Is there a chance I won’t get in?
Dreams Early Access is limited yes, but it’s a big limit. That being said, to avoid disappointment, we do recommend you purchase as soon as you can to enjoy all of the creator tools available.

    I’m so very excited for this. Out of curiosity, is it going to release across all PS stores at the same time our 12 am april 16 our local time?

    • Moist_Tetherball

      Yes this is important. Please let us know what time of day it will be releasing Mm.

    • iamtylerdurden1

      My fiance and i desperately want in. The beta was awe-inspiring and Dreams is perhaps the most important game release of my lifetime. This is a truly progressive idea that will spawn a new generation of game developers. The potential is limitless.

      Support this game. Whether you are a content creator, VR enthusiast, LBP fan, or you just want to play, Dreams is the must-buy game of 2019. It will provide a near endless supply of VR content, the tools to create any genre of game you desire, and thousands of unique games and experiences to discover.

      Aspiring devs, musicians, and artists have advanced tools to create and a robust community to share their creations with. People will form bonds, working relationships, and even get discovered through this vast network. It enables talented people to have a platform and for everyone else to have fun. Due to the incredible social network implemented into Dreams you can even moonlight as a professional game/content critic through the awesome review/comment/like system. You can gain notoriety in a multitude of way and people can even like and comment on your reviews/comments. You create your own profile and others can follow you and your projects or suggest them to others. There are game jams, contests, and numerous ways to collaborate or remix content.

      Dreams is truly a revolutionary game. It’s honestly more than a game.

  • GamerJay_ChiefOP

    Literally the best part of today! Cant wait to get back creating content again! Love you Mm! ❤❤

  • Excited for it and also anxious because I may not get in.
    This should have been on State of Play.

    • GamerJay_ChiefOP

      That’s what I was saying on my livestream! But they dropped it separately 2 DAYS after…that was a HUGE marketing opportunity!

  • Oh sweet! That’s my brother’s birthday! Well, I know the first thing I’m making is a Dreams Cake!

    Does Media Molecule approve? :D

  • YES! See you all on April 16th! :-D

  • Carnageheart

    As a huge fan of LBP in general and Media Molecule in particular (for years my daughters and I played LBP together daily) I am really looking forward to Dreams.

    I love how simple the tools look (didn’t make the beta so I had to content myself with video) and I have a small notebook full of ideas.

  • Or1g1nalStati1on

    Does this only work on a PS4 Pro?
    Can it be used on a normal PS4?
    Does it also require a VR system to be used?

    • Moist_Tetherball

      It works on any system, and does not require vr. In fact the early access doesn’t even support vr yet.

  • So you telling me that if buy Early Access, then I get the full version at no cost. Then count me in.

  • Mercenary09

    Yep I’m buying this as soon as it goes live. I’m guessing no but will early access have trophies?

  • Woot best news of the day for sure!!!

  • Will Dreams early access have trophies like Drawn to Death early access did?

  • Will the full version cost the same amount as the early access (if we don’t get in) or will it cost more?

    • Mercenary09

      They haven’t confirmed but I believe they said there is a good chance it will cost more (given that it will have more content at launch.) If you want to get it for $30 you better get this when it goes live.

    • yeah, I hope to. If it appears at 12am, definitely. if later in the day, I’ll have to hope the wi-fi at work is working properly.

  • It’s not like you guys had an event less than a week ago that needed some big announcements like this!

  • Cyberspacer18

    finally the next beta is here

  • Will Dreams Early Access include new and improved Dual Shock controls?

  • I can hardly wait! The beta was such a great experience, and I am so beyond excited to get back into Dreams. Literally (and I do mean literally) every day for a fair bit more than a year I have been either coming up with ideas or just thinking about Dreams (I may be a bit obsessed); and that’s not even counting me getting intrigued by the teaser from the PS4 reveal event so many years ago. This makes me so incredibly happy to now know when we’ll all be able to get our hands on Dreams. Thank you Media Molecule. Thank you.

  • Ryuzakinaruki

    I’m going to be absolutely crushed if I miss the early access

    • Same. I’ve been champing at the bit waiting to get my hands on Dreams. I’m still super bummed I missed the beta.

  • So I got an email that says “You are invited to the DREAMS creator Early Access”, does that guarantee an early access copy? Otherwise this is very misleading and confusing.
    I would appreciate if someone from Sony/MM could answer this.
    Thanks and Cheers and see all you awesome creators in DREAMS! <3

    • LEFT__4__DEAD__2

      I was invited too, Dreams is fun at anytime of day to create experiences, i saw some cool stuff in Beta it was amazing :)

  • theorenne2020

    Lol, how these people try to be funny.. just don’t bother and get to the point

  • kodiak1234-xx

    My birthday is on April 16 that’s dope

  • There isn’t a single piece of software on the horizon that excites me more than Dreams. I’ll be glued to my PS4 when this launches.

  • I will participate but do also wish to obtain a physical copy.

    I know this has never been done but is there any way you can tie a digital purchase to a physical copy of the game? Via PS Store?

    Just a suggestion but I am sure many would enjoy such a feature

  • gadianton17

    Me and my brother are SUPER excited for this game, we used to own all the Littlebigplanet games, and Dreams makes me so excited! We are both working to get it soon, just a quick question though! Will two people be able to create together? Thanks!

  • Warbringer1109

    I saw that I got invited but I don’t know how to buy it :(

    • Clearly helps to actually read the available information! It will be released on the 16th, you can’t buy it before then.
