Dreams VR Update Is Out Now, Includes New VR Games Made by Media Molecule

There's a ton of new options for creating VR-dedicated levels.

It was first announced last month in June, and today Dreams has been updated to support PSVR. The free update for Media Molecule's game is out right now, and it comes with a bunch of new games created by the developer's themselves.

The PSVR update for Dreams is out now, and it's merely a few gigabytes to download. The update that includes the creations from Media Molecule is called Inside the Box, and it includes a bunch of new modes that can be played both with and without the PSVR.

As you'd expect, there's a ton of new creations tools for making your own PSVR content in Dreams. There are new head and hand trackers, sensors that detect where the player is looking, the ability to adjust camera motion, and much more.

Speaking to PushSquare yesterday, Media Molecule revealed that while every existing Dreams creation would "technically" be playable in VR, the level of comfort would vary widely depending on which games are and aren't suited to VR. With this update though, creators should be able to edit their existing creations and add in features like head and hand trackers that make their creations easier to play in VR.

Elsewhere, there are VR compatibility markers for existing creations, that let players decide which games are more naturally suited for VR, and another marker that denotes the level of experience a player might need to have with VR in order to play a level. On top of these additions is the ability to comment on Dreams creations for the first time, so you can leave feedback on creations.

You can find a full list of additions in the new patch on the official Dreams website. VR compatibility is something that's excited me ever since it was announced for Dreams, and it's drawn me back to Media Molecule's game for the first time since it launched.
