The world of gaming is among the fastest growing markets in the world of technology. A large number of companies have been making massive profits over the last several years. With the arrival of Virtual Reality, the markets of gaming are getting a whole new paradigm to work towards. Much has been changed, and much will change in the years to follow. Minecraft, among some of the most popular games of all times, has now stepped foot into the world of VR. Minecraft has now launched for the Oculus Rift.
Microsoft, which now owns Minecraft, is quite excited about the possibilities that this will open up for Minecraft gamers, as well as the world of gaming at large. On Monday, Microsoft released a free update to the game for Windows 10 Edition Beta. Following this update, the game has now become Oculus Rift compatible.
“We’d like to welcome you to the game all over again, because it’s a fantastic new experience in VR, even if you’re a Minecraft veteran,” developer Mike McGrath wrote in a blog post. “For new and experienced players, we hope the VR experience in Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta will illuminate just how powerful, evocative, and utterly immersive VR can be.”
The company has added a number of new features, such as keyboard and mouse support. They are now aiming at bringing forward massive changes to the gameplay experience. Users who own an Oculus Rift device can simply log in to their Mojang account and hit ‘Redeem’. The Oculus Rift version of Minecraft too, comes out with nearly the same gameplay features as the original game. With the HTC Vive and many more devices expected to enter the markets of Virtual Reality, things are all set to get a little more exciting for the gamers in the future!
