Information surrounding Dreams, the upcoming and highly anticipated sandbox creation game from Media Molecule, has been in high demand for most of its development cycle. While Sony Interactive Entertainment has been teasing the game for years, it looks like the game may hit its targeted 2019 date, as a new closed beta has just been announced for tomorrow.
During a streaming event by the developer, the team behind the creative project announced that a private beta will be starting tomorrow for fan who have been enrolled in the developer’s community newsletter. While fans are still encouraged to sign up for the newsletter, those who do so now will unfortunately not have access to the closed beta. Those who have previously signed up for the newsletter should expect to receive their invite codes by tomorrow. The beta is set to last until January 21st, 2019 and will require a 4 GB download. Players are not required to have a PlayStation Plus account to access the beta, but also must sign a confidentiality agreement to participate. Also, PlayStation VR will not be supported during this run of the beta.
Those who are still interested in participating in the beta will have the opportunity to do so, with a public beta taking place in the first quarter of 2019. Signups for the general beta will begin on January 8th.
Dreams focuses on giving players the opportunity to ‘play, create, and share’ created content in its open sandbox world. Media Molecule, who assisted in the development of the LittleBigPlanet series on variety of PlayStation hardware, brings their years of design ingenuity to the Dreams project. While no concrete date has been announced, Dreams is schedule to exclusively release on the PlayStation 4 in 2019.
