Minecraft Oculus Rift Support Coming In The Next Few Weeks

It’s the one-year anniversary of Minecraft on Windows 10, and the Mojang team is celebrating. Today marks the release of a new Villains skin pack and a roller coaster map, but a bigger update is on the way soon.

Minecraft is coming to Oculus Rift at long last in the next few weeks. We’ve known the game would support the Rift since Oculus Connect 2 in September 2015. It launched on Gear VR in April. 

Those that own the more fully featured, PC-powered headset won’t need to pay for the update when it arrives. It’ll be delivered entirely free.

Later, Minecraft on Windows 10 will support simple modifications of creature behavior via editing simple text JSON files. We saw the feature in action at E3 with amusing results, including speedy creepers, exploding chickens, and aggressive sheep.

Minecraft on Windows 10 is still in beta, and receiving regular updates. For more recent additions, check out our previous coverage.
