Dreams, after seven years of waiting, has finally released on the PS4 today, though there’s something missing from Media Molecule’s brilliant game: PSVR support. It was touted early on that Dreams would fully support the peripheral but we’ve yet to see the PSVR be used with the game. Even on release day, there’s no PSVR support for Dreams, but that will change in the near future.
Eurogamer recently sat down to talk with Media Molecule’s Alex Evans and Mark Healey, where the publication asked a range of questions. Naturally, PSVR came up, and the developers didn’t hide behind the usual PR fluff when they don’t know or aren’t allowed to answer a question.
When asked about future updates, Alex Evens said that “VR is in the pipeline and is nearly done,” and that multiplayer is another thing the studio is looking at, though he notes that it’s not nearly as far ahead as VR support, and as he did the original code for multiplayer, he’s sure it will release, eventually.
PSVR support for Dreams is a tantalising prospect, and I for one can’t wait to see what the creative types manage to pull off in Dreams. This also begs the question: what about other VR headsets? It has been rumoured that Dreams will eventually release on PC, and if that’s the case, I’d love to see what could be done with more capable headsets. That’s probably some time off, though, if it ever comes to fruition, but it’s worth thinking about anyway.
Dreams is out now on PS4 and can be bought via the PlayStation Store, or you can pick up a physical copy at Amazon.
