Here is what he has to say about the game coming to Samsung Gear VR:
“Minecraft is a game that you can both figuratively and literally lose yourself in. In fact, 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 – it goes from a sense of playing the game to one of being inside your world, and spinning around to find a creeper sneaking up on you leaves a powerful impression. Infinite worlds have been explored, shaped, and shared by millions of people, and now in VR; that sounds a bit like the fabled Metaverse.”
Minecraft virtual reality game on Samsung Gear VR will support all the features of the game’s pocket edition. This includes –
- Creative and Survival Modes
The VR version of the game also gives the player the liberty to choose between the first-person view and the default theatre view as per his/her convenience.
