Media Molecule announced today that Dreams, its game creation tool, will soon expand into virtual reality with a free VR update.
The free VR expansion arrives on July 22. It enables players to create and play in VR. It includes tutorials, how-tos, and various kits to help you get started creating new content within the game.
Here’s more from Abbie Heppe, Communications Manager at Media Molecule (via PlayStation Blog):
When it comes to Create Mode in VR, sculpting is truly unique, allowing you to bring your Dreams to life around you. If you have PlayStation Move Controllers, you’ll find sculpting in VR is a very one-to-one experience and lets you fully immerse in the creation process. Of course, you don’t need to be in VR to create for PS VR, and non-PS VR users will benefit from the update as well. We’re introducing a handful of new gadgets to Create Mode, and a full slate of accessibility features including comfort mode, vignette strength, static sky, and more to make the experience of playing and creating as great as possible.
We have also created a whole range of different experiences ready to play and inspire Dreamers for their own versions. From games such as Box Blaster, which sees you testing your sharp-shooting skills, to our Inside the Box Gallery which features sculpts and art pieces from different members of the team, including an ultra-fabulous mech. Games like Box Blaster will also have their own respective creation kits.
