In the last month, at GDC 2016 in San Francisco, we learned about Microsoft’s plans to release Minecraft for Gear VR. kirn.net as pricing and availability weren’t public. Oculus announced today that the game with an open world is now available on Samsung’s virtual reality headset. Officially dubbed Minecraft: Gear VR Edition, the game is said to support the same features of the Pocket Edition, including its creative, survival and multiplayer modes in addition to the character skins your familiar with.
In addition, Minecraft: Gear VR Edition lets you choose between a first-person or theater view (which is the default), depending on how ferocious you feel as you prepare to begin building and exploring in virtual reality. Oculus CTO John Carmack, who last year made it clear that this version was in the works in a blog post “My most vivid memories of being in VR are the time I’ve spent playing Minecraft on Gear VR. Experiencing it in virtual reality changes it from a purely abstract experience to a visceral one.”
If you have a Gear VR, Minecraft can be yours from the Oculus Store for $7.
