Dreams Gets Free VR Support This Month

Games discussed:

Beginning three weeks from now on July 22, Media Molecule's Dreams will allow for user-generated virtual reality games and experiences. The news was shared by Media Molecule itself on Twitter. 

Step into the Dreamiverse, literally. VR support comes to #DreamsPS4 on July 22nd, 2020. Create your own VR games, share them with other Dreamers and experience a whole new side of Dreams.

The update will be free for all Dreams players and offers a range of accessibility options, as well as brand new tools for players to use. Most exciting is perhaps a 3D sculpting tool which lets players carve out assets in the game as though they're Demi Moore molding the clay slab in Ghost (Swayze not included). 

For players who don't quite trust player-made virtual reality projects - or perhaps any VR projects in general - given their penchant to nauseate, Dreams will allow players to label the comfort levels of their creations, so inexperienced VR players don't stroll into anything too dizzying. 

Along with this, the game will receive a host of new tutorials for players to get familiar with the many new tools at their disposal. Dreams' in-depth lessons have been one of its best features so far, so it's safe to expect this new suite of gameplay options will be similarly well-taught.

After many years in development, Media Molecule's follow-up to LittleBigPlanet became the first ever PlayStation early access game in 2019. It then released out of its early access state in February of this year to nearly universal acclaim. Today it stands as one of the best-reviewed games of 2020, with an average of a "Mighty" 90 from 93 critics. That makes it the fourth-highest reviewed game of the year and the second-highest PlayStation exclusive after Naughty Dog's record-shattering sequel, The Last of Us Part 2.

For fans of first-party PlayStation games, there's no time to rest on these laurels. Two more major projects are due this month for the brand. First comes Iron Man VR later this week, followed by Sucker Punch's long-awaited Ghost of Tsushima in the middle of the month. We've got the drop on both review embargoes if you're wondering when you can read what critics have to say about them.
