Minecraft now playable in VR with Oculus Rift

Microsoft has released a free update for Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition that allows gamers to play a virtual reality version of the title through the Oculus Rift headset. The VR version of Minecraft is playable with mouse and keyboard (if you're comfortable using your mouse and keyboard with a headset on) or with an Xbox One controller.

Minecraftis playable in both a "fully immersive" first person mode, as well as a theatre mode where you can play on a virtual big screen. Support for the upcoming Oculus Touch motion controllers will be added later this year.

A virtual reality version of Minecraft is also available for the Samsung Gear VR, but that's limited to the functionality included in game's "Pocket Edition".
