If you can dream it, you can create it. Media Molecule has announced Dreams Early Access will kick off next month. Here are the details.

Are you ready to let your imagination run wild? Developer Media Molecule is looking for creative minds to dive into their latest “experience,” Dreams, a sandbox game that encourages players to “play, create, and share.”

Announced this week, Media Molecule is launching Early Access to Dreams on April 16, giving creators a chance to play with the full suite of creative game and world-building tools the game has to offer. Interactive tutorials, arcade games, templates and additional content created by Media Molecule and the community during the Dreams Creator Beta will also be accessible.

Not every feature Dreams will have at launch will be included in Early Access, such as the story mode which Media Molecule says will be a “big piece” of the game.

Dreams Early Access will cost $29.99 and will launch initially in the U.S., Canada and all European territories. Early Access is limited in capacity, but Media Molecule assures “it’s a big limit.” However, the developer also recommends purchasing Early Access as soon as you can in order to ensure you snag a spot.

If you do purchase Dreams Early Access, you’ll also receive the full version of the game upon its release. Unfortunately, we still don’t have an actual release date for the game. When it does release, all of your Early Access creations will carry over to the full game, meaning nothing you do will be of waste. What’s more, there is no NDA for Early Access, meaning you can stream and share all of your created content with the world to see.

Dreams was first revealed during PlayStation Meeting 2013 as a technical demo. Fans were further intrigued a year later when the first teaser was released before officially being announced at Sony’s E3 2015 press conference.

It’s been a long road for Dreams, but it seems we’re finally in the home stretch. While the story mode is certainly intriguing, Dreams is all about the community at its core. If you can imagine it, you can build it. And if someone builds it, you can explore it.

Dreams Early Access launches on April 16. You’ll be able to purchase it from the PlayStation Store on its launch day, but it’s, unfortunately, not available for pre-purchase.
