Now you can play Minecraft Windows 10 Edition Beta on Rift! Discover the infinite possibilities of Minecraft in virtual reality. Explore, build, and share your creations in an immersive new way with millions of other players around the world.

Plus, with this launch, you and your friends can explore Minecraft—simultaneously, cross platform—on Rift, Gear VR, iOS, Android, and Windows 10 devices. You can download Minecraft for Rift on the Oculus Store here and upgrade to the full version, in game for $9.99. It’s also available as a free update for all existing Minecraft Windows 10 Edition Beta owners.

The world of Minecraft comes to life in VR. This update comes fully-featured, with controls specifically optimized for an intuitive VR experience. Be sure to take advantage of the awe-inspiring, fully immersive first person mode, as well as a theater view for a more comfortable option. And with features like Realms, you can create and adventure with a group of friends or family in your own permanent Minecraft world that’s always available.

The developers at Mojang and Microsoft worked closely with us to bring Minecraft to VR. Here’s a quick look at what went into making the game an incredible VR experience.


We think Minecraft on Rift is a powerful VR experience that will be even better when Touch support is added for free later this year. We can’t wait to see what players do with a new perspective on this sandbox game.
