Minecraft For Gear VR Available!


 


Have you been itching to try Minecraft in VR? You can now play Minecraft on Gear VR-compatible Samsung phones: the Galaxy S7 or S7 edge, Note5, S6 and S6 edge. Essentially, you just have to slot your Samsung phone into the Gear VR headset, and you get one whole Minecraft world, all 3D-virtual-reality-like! Sweet.


 


Minecraft for the Oculus Rift is still coming, but to make things simple, Mojang has released another version on the Oculus Store, just for use with the Gear VR. It is, for all intents and purposes, identical to Pocket Edition; it costs the same, and has cross-platform play with regular Pocket and Windows 10 editions. Having a Bluetooth-compatible controller is a must.


 


If you have the Samsung S6 or S7, the screen resolution is evidently pretty good, so you won’t be easily distracted by the pixels. Older phone models might not run the game quite as well in true stereo or with as high a draw distance, but the ability to experience VR with just your phone might override that completely. It's a pretty crazy experience.


 


As with all new technology, read up on the safety information to make sure it's up your alley. You should always take regular breaks, as longer sessions can make some players feel nauseous or get eye fatigue. Mojang has made loads of tiny tweaks to bring Minecraft to VR, like letting you turn the camera in snappy increments. It is definitely unusual, but quickly feels normal and is a lot easier on the brain. It makes sense when you actually do it, promise!
