Oculus Releases Minecraft for the Samsung Gear VR

The team behind Minecraft, the popular open-world game beloved for its freedom to create and build, has teamed up with Oculus to release an official edition that takes you even further into the block-based world using a Samsung Gear VR headset. While the Oculus Rift version itself is still forthcoming, Gear VR users can play right now.

Minecraft: Gear VR Edition contains all the features of the currently available Pocket Edition, including Survival and Create modes. It also has cross-platform compatibility with the Windows 10 version.

Players have the choice to play the game in the default theatrical mode or, if they really want to dive deep into the experience, they can opt for the first-person mode that plunges you right into the worlds of the game. You can also switch in and out of the modes using a finger tap, as explained in Mojang's handy user guide.

There are also more finely tuned controls to give players more comfort in getting through the game, so as to not add more strain on their body. You can purchase Minecraft: Gear VR Edition in the Oculus Store for $6.99.
