Minecraft has landed on the Oculus Rift as a part of a free replace to the Windows 10 Edition beta. Anybody who owns the Pc or Mac model of Minecraft is robotically granted entry to the Home windows 10 beta model; hit up Mojang to enroll and start taking part in.
We tried out the Oculus Rift version of Minecraft again in March and found it to be absolutely delightful.
"It's one of the best and extra immersive VR experiences I've had to this point," senior editor Nathan Ingraham wrote. "The truth is, that lack of wonderful detail really helps Minecraft be so successful -- the game would not try to imitate reality. As an alternative, it felt extra like I stepped into a cartoon."
Minecraft is already playable on the Samsung Gear VR, although that's limited to the options of the Pocket Version. The Oculus Rift model features support for the Xbox One controller plus keyboard and mouse, and players' VR-specific settings are saved individually from their traditional Minecraft world.
Mojang developer Tommaso Checchi tweeted on Thursday that the Oculus Rift version of Minecraft would land a while this week, though he did not divulge an actual date. SYSTEM32 Glad Monday, everybody.
