Mojang and Sony have confirmed that Minecraft will be receiving VR support on PS4 and will come with two separate modes.
Playing Minecraft in VR has, up till now, only been an option for PC gamers, but that’s about to change for PlayStation 4 owners as developer Mojang announced earlier today that the game will be receiving PlayStation VR support later this month.
According to executive producer Roger Carpenter, who announced it via the PlayStation Blog, it will become available later this month and will be a completely free and automatic download.
Instead of providing a separate VR mode you’ll instead be able to play Minecraft in its entirety. ‘It is 100% the same Minecraft game that you can play every day, every week, every month, every year…on PlayStation 4. Nothing removed. 100% wholesome and pure full-fat Minecraft,’ says Carpenter.
While he doesn’t go into too much detail, he does add that there will be settings that can be tweaked to suit the player’s needs, as well as two different ways to play: immersive mode and living room mode.
Both versions still require you to use the PlayStation 4 DualShock controller to move around and perform all your actions.
The key difference is that you will be fully immersed in the game’s blocky world, meaning sudden creeper appearances are going to be even more terrifying.
Minecraft is available on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.
