Minecraft virtual reality support has been a thing for a while now. Mojang has supported headsets on different platforms, like the Oculus Rift. The Windows 10 version of the game even had Windows Mixed Reality support. But, there wasn’t any PlayStation VR support. That is, until this month. Mojang announced on the PlayStation Blog that a Minecraft PSVR update is on the way in September 2020.
Like the Windows Mixed Reality VR experience, the Minecraft PSVR experience will be free feature. If you have the PlayStation 4, it will get the patch that will let anyone with the PSVR headset play the game in the first-person with it. It won’t be any separate version of the game. You can immediately play what you already have, just with the headset.
The announcement also went over a few details about how this will all work. This VR experience is based on all the other Minecraft VR experiences. Both Sony and SkyBox Labs were involved with making it happen. Folks can use their DualShock 4s to play, as usual. There will also be Immersive and Living Room modes to help people find the experience and option that best suits their playstyle.
Minecraft is available on Sony platforms like the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita. Minecraft PSVR support will arrive in September 2020. The game also supports cross-play on all platforms and has its own CoroCoro manga in Japan.
