The official PlayStation Blog announced that the Minecraft VR game would support the PlayStation VR headset on PlayStation 4 to bring VR survival to PlayStation.
“PS VR support has actually been a planned PS4 feature since we got the thumbs-up from Sony to bring cross-platform play and the Bedrock version to PlayStation 4. There was never any question of would we, just when.” – Mojang’s Roger Carpenter.
Everything available in Minecraft’s base game will be available in Minecraft VR. The game has not been altered at all. Gamers only need to use their DualShock 4 rather than the PlayStation Move controller.
“Despite the pandemic adjusting how we develop Minecraft, development on Minecraft for PS VR has been relatively drama-free. Dare I say it, normal, even. The Minecraft x PSVR experience itself is based on the Minecraft VR tech that we developed for other VR platforms a few years back. SkyBox Labs took that and have been working their magic to convert and optimise the existing tech for PS VR. And, of course, our friends at Sony have been there all along the way to guide us because they know their system better than anyone.” – Mojang’s Roger Carpenter. Minecraft VR is not expected to come to Xbox now, because of the brand’s unwillingness to bring VR to its system
