Microsoft is opening up the world of ‘Minecraft’ to Gear VR

Microsoft is opening up the world of ‘Minecraft’ to Gear VR

By Edgar Alvarez

Next step for the game: Samsung’s virtual reality headset.

The Oculus Rift isn’t the only virtual reality platform getting a piece ofMinecraft’s pie. Today, at a GDC 2016 event, Microsoft and Oculus are set to announce that the open-world phenomenon is also coming to the Gear VR, a spokesperson for the companies confirmed to Engadget. For many people, Samsung’s headset is a far more accessible option than the consumer Rift, so this is good news for anyone who wants to playMinecraft in VR without breaking the bank.

This new version is expected to be similar to the one from an Oculus Rift, which we played recently and found quite impressive. As of yet, there’s not any information on how much Minecraft for Gear VR will cost or when you can download it, but we’ll let you know as soon as we have those details. At least now you’re aware it’s official, not just a thought.
