The First Big Virtual Reality Video Game Hit

Minecraft is now available on Oculus for Samsung Gear VR!

Oculus announced today that Minecraft: Gear VR Edition is available at the Oculus store!

You can get the new Minecraft game on the Oculus Store starting at $6.99.

John Carmack shared his thoughts about why this is an exciting moment for mobile VR:

“Minecraft is a game that you can both figuratively and literally lose yourself in. In fact, my strongest memories of being inside VR are from the time I’ve spent exploring Minecraft on Gear VR. Experiencing it in virtual reality changes it from an abstract activity to a visceral one – it goes from a sense of playing the game to one of being inside your world, and spinning around to find a creeper sneaking up on you leaves a powerful impression. Infinite worlds have been explored, shaped, and shared by millions of people, and now in VR; that sounds a bit like the fabled Metaverse.”

Minecraft: Gear VR Edition supports all the features of Pocket Edition, including Creative and Survival modes, skins, and multiplayer. You can choose between the more comfortable default theater view or the more intense and immersive first-person view that lets you stand beside your creations.

The mobile freedom of Gear VR gives you the opportunity to examine what you’ve built in Minecraft as you would in the real world. You’ll need a gamepad (sold separately) to move through and interact with Minecraft, and Oculus recommends the SteelSeries Stratus XL.
