The long awaited PSVR update for Dreams is coming out next month on 22nd July, Sony and Media Molecule have revealed today. Check out the VR announcement trailer here.
Dreams saw its full release earlier this year, but arrived without the promised PSVR support that had been revealed back in 2018. At that point, as Media Molecule pushed toward the Early Access release of the game in 2019, they put virtual reality to one side to focus on refining the core experience of creation and sharing.
However, it was around the time of release that Mm said that PSVR support was “nearly done”, indicating that players would not have to wait long to dive face first into the game. Still, it’s taken almost half a year and an additional closed beta phase for Mm to be happy with releasing this into the wild.
Given how long the company took to perfect the game through the generation, that’s no surprise. Dreams was first showcased way back in the 2013 PlayStation Meeting to reveal the PlayStation 4, but it took years for us to actually get a name and have even half a clue what the game would be like. As with the company’s original creation, LittleBigPlanet, the emphasis is on putting the tools of creation into the hands of players, and letting them run free, collaborating, borrowing, expanding on each other’s ideas.
