The Early Access version of Dreams will no longer be able for purchase following December 7 at 3:59 p.m. PT, publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer Media Molecule announced. Anyone who has purchased the Early Access version by this date will still be able to play Dreams after December 8 and upgrade to the full version at no additional cost when it launches.

“At the studio, we’ve been collecting all the feedback, fixing the bugs and working to make the full version of Dreams the best experience for everyone—those who want to play, those who want to create and those who aspire to learn,” Media Molecule communications manager Abbie Heppe said in a PlayStation Blog post. “Some of that work includes adding a non-motion control scheme for the game, helping new players learn to create, more tutorials and how-to content for players of all skill levels, improving existing features like Community Jams, the Homespace and Imp Quests and adding more content, including our first piece of Media Molecule story-telling in Dreams, Art’s Dream. We hope you’re going to love all of it and our Early Access players deserve a huge mega-thanks for joining us on this journey.”
