<p>During GDC 2016 in San Francisco last month, Microsoft talked about their plans to release a version of hit title Minecraft for the Samsung Gear VR. Still, the details such as pricing, availability and what the game would actually comprise of were unknown at the time.</p><p>Rather than fill us in on the information, Oculus has announced it’s out now, available to those with Samsung Gear VR headsets now. While it’s officially called the Minecraft: Gear VR edition, the game supports most of the same features as the pocket edition, including it’s creative, survival and multiplayer modes.</p><p>You can also pick between a first person or theatre view for your building projects, depending on how keen you are to dive headfirst into virtual reality.</p><p>John Carmack, CTO of Oculus and overall big gaming dude, claimed: “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."</p><p>Presumably he hasn’t heard how we feel about the word visceral in games, but it’s a strong recommendation from the big cheese himself. If you’ve got a Gear VR, you can buy it from the Oculus Store now, but you'll need a gamepad if you want to do anything worthwhile.</p>.
