Only back in March, Mojang announced that they would bring Oculus Rift support for popular franchise Minecraft on Windows 10. Now the wait is nearly over, with Minecraft players able to enjoy the game in VR from next week onwards.
That’s according to Minecraft developer, Tommaso Checchi, who took to Twitter today to announce that Oculus Rift support is nearly ready for launch.
Unfortunately, the VR support will only be available for the Windows 10 version of Minecraft, so if you’re currently running anything older you’ll need to update.
Microsoft and Mojang are teaming up with Oculus to provide the first-ever demos of Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition with Oculus Rift support, shown at the Xbox Spring Showcase on Cyberpower Black Crow and Acer Predator G6. You can play Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition in Creative or Survival mode in full 3D while using the familiar Xbox One controller that ships with every Rift sold.
The game will also be available to purchase through the Oculus Store if desired.
