Minecraft Now Available On Oculus Rift VR Headset
Minecraft is one of the most anticipated games to come in virtual reality. At the moment, it has been announced that the 3d pixelated open-world adventure game is now available on the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. It was announced by Oculus today that players with a copy of the game can now explore the virtual world by using their VR headsets.
It appears that the fun building world of Minecraft is a natural fit for virtual reality and for augmented reality as well. However, the developers of this worldwide hit game, Mojang, took a while to transcend into this fledging platform. According to Tech Radar, the game's original creator, Makus Persson also known as Notch, discarded his plans for a virtual reality version after the acquisition of Facebook to Oculus from two years ago.
According to the reports from Forbes, the game is now owned by Microsoft. The tech giant bought the game from its developers for $2.5 million back in 2014. Based on the latest news, Microsoft has been collaborating with the Oculus Rift team to make a greater push through the game's optimization in VR. Their collaboration was a success and hard work will be paid-off as Minecraft is now playable through their Oculus Rift headset with no additional charge.
It means that if the game was installed on your Windows 10 computer, an upgrade is available at some point next week that will allow you to plug in your Oculus Rift headset and roam around the pixelated world of Minecraft with the help of an Xbox One controller. For those who have picked the game for the Mac or got an older version, Microsoft is allowing you to acquire the Windows 10 beta version for free through the Mojang website.
Apparently, the new update will cause some major changes to the game's rules due to some important new features. To those who has an Oculus Rift at home, be ready for the queued update sometime next week for an ultimate VR experience.
