Hold on to your seat. One of the largest video games on the planet has VR support!
And its supported by Oculus! That means you can immerse yourself in the world of Minecraft as if you were actually there building and mining away.
What platform can I use?
You can use both the Samsung Gear VR and the Oculus Rift to access Minecraft in VR with various pro's and con's.
The Samsung Gear VR is known for its portability which is great as you can work on your farm, dungeon, work of art while on your commute, or a bunch of you can play in your living room without wires marching around the place. The downside to this option is that your phones battery will deplete pretty quickly, you also need a wireless gamepad.
The Oculus Rift option will allow you to play for hours and hours as everything is wired up to a PC and your Oculus account. You also need a copy of Minecraft to access the full game. There will be a few wires to deal with but you can play until your hearts content, you will have a better networked system and you can carry over your own Minecraft account or import pre-made models, buildings, landscapes and so on.
Isn't Minecraft for kids and Youtubers?
Minecraft is for kids as much as any video game or chocolate bar is. There is a reason its so popular; its because it allows you to create whatever you want and be as creative as you like.
People have built working computers and even full scale models of the Star Ship Enterprise! Imagine building and then walking around your favourite sitcom show or redesigning your house. Sure it might be a little pixelated but who's first house wasn't?
We have supplied a number of private and corporate functions with Minecraft on both the Gear VR for kids parties and the Oculus Rift for corporate events, all business I'm sure. If you would like Minecraft VR at your event please get in touch for a tailored package.
