Mojang released a separate iteration of Minecraft for Windows 10 in July last year. Called Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition beta, it’s limited to the latest and greatest Windows update from Microsoft, and now it’s going to give PC players a huge advantage. It has been confirmed today that Minecraft Oculus Rift support is going to be added to Windows 10 Edition beta in a few weeks from now.
Support for the Oculus Rift means that Minecraft players will be able to enjoy the game in virtual reality, which hasn’t exactly been possible before on PC. Minecraft is already available in virtual reality for the Samsung Gear VR headset.
The experience will be limited to those who have a Windows 10-powered PC as well as the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. They will be able to jump right in and start playing Minecraft in a way they have never played it in before.
This is going to be a free update so Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition beta owners need to worry about having to spend money in order to play one of their favorite games in virtual reality.
Mojang, which is now owned by Microsoft, has only confirmed today that Minecraft Oculus Rift support is coming soon. No precise release date has been officially communicated as yet.
