The PS Plus roster for August is here, and while it might seem a little tame compared to the addition of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, you can actually get more bang for your buck. In fact, the PS Plus August 2023 games line up brings us Dreams – an incredibly dense game creation system that is perfect for Roblox fans looking to step up their creativity. Oh, and it also contains thousands of games within it.
We’re not joking. Dreams, from developer Media Molecule, might seem daunting at first, but the innovative title has become a canvas for all sorts of mind-blowing creations. The game consists of two main modes called DreamSurfing and DreamShaping. The former will let you explore and play the games of others, which can range from anything between first-person shooters to abstract and experimental projects.
There’s even lore to dig into, as Dreams takes place within the Dreamiverse; a realm completely made out of thought and strong ideas.
Media Molecule have actually used Dreams to conjure up new games themselves, including the likes of Art’s Dream, A Long Climb Ago, and its next project titled Tren. Roblox is packed full of unique sandboxes and frequent collaborations with brands and movies, but Dreams allows players to take their world building skills to new heights. There are already some excellent games to test out, including this impressive take on what a Superman game could be like.
Others are using Dreams to will things into existence, like Gollum from The Lord of the Rings. We don’t mean that Gollum. YouTuber ‘Apeinator 3D’ often showcases their ongoing Dreams projects, and this detailed sculpt of the corrupted Hobbit is just another addition to their superb repertoire.
But if you’re more of an action fan, opting to play games like Modern Warfare 2 or Apex Legends, then you’re probably going to find yourself creating an FPS of your own. It doesn’t have to get off to a tough start, though, as YouTuber’s like ‘Intrattackout’ have put together a tutorial to get your perfect FPS experience off the ground.
One thing to note with Dreams is that live-service support will conclude in September, as Media Molecule moves onto a currently unannounced project. However, this doesn’t mean the game will be left to dwindle into disarray. The developer will still provide bug fixes, community engagement, promotions, and in-game curation for newcomers and returning Dreams players alike.
Who knows, after a while of playing around in Dreams, you might just make one of the best games around. Stranger things have happened. And if you’re looking to get some other titles downloaded too, don’t forget to check out the full PS Plus Extra and Premium games list.
