A Dreams Dev Is Planning A Star Wars VR Level With This Awesome Lightsaber

The question everyone asked has been answered; yes, you can make a lightsaber in Dreams. And you can wield it with a PlayStation Move controller too. Reddit user magnumninja recently shared a look at his version of the iconic Star Wars sword. It was built in the ongoing creator beta for Dreams.

The prototype, in cooperation with Intel, became the official HTC Vive wireless adapter in 2018. There already is a wireless adapter on the market for the Rift- the TPCast.
