Minecraft VR is nothing new, what with Gear VR support released for the mobile editions earlier this year and with unofficial VR support released for PC before even then. But this is official support, made in collaboration with Mojang and Oculus.

Here, though, the creators have added a couple of tweaks to make it more bearable, like how you can only turn in increments, instead of a single smooth motion. There’s also the ability to get a little distance – the click of a button pulls the view out so you’re sat on a Minecraft sofa, playing Minecraft in Minecraft on a blocky little virtual TV set.
