Update (12/18/18 at 12:20 p.m.): During a livestream today, Media Molecule announced that Dreams is getting a closed beta beginning tomorrow. Invites will be sent exclusively to those following Media Molecule’s community newsletter, and it will last from December 19 to January 21.
For the open beta, it won’t begin until early next year. No date was given, but you can start signing up on January 4.
If you follow the newsletter, invite codes will begin to be sent out tomorrow. You’ll need to sign a non-disclosure agreement agreeing not to stream or post any of its content online. The beta will not support PSVR, and it will require a 4GB download. Invites will be distributed to those who signed up for the newsletter before December 17, so signing up now won’t get you a code.

Media Molecule’s Dreams, a fascinating, upcoming sandbox where you can create your own games, could be getting some special news soon. Media Molecule recently tweeted that it’s going to stream Dreams-related content tomorrow, and although these streams are a routine occurrence, the sarcastic tone suggests it’s something big this time.
Our best bet is that it’s related to Dreams’ upcoming beta. Last we heard, the plan is to release the beta before the end of the year, but time is running out. When a fan asked the team on Twitter whether they are still on track for that launch, they received a confident response:
Hi Thomas! We aren’t ignoring anyone – it’s very busy here at Mm Towers! Our plans haven’t changed, and when we’re ready to share more details with you all, we will! ❤️
