Minecraft VR is playable with PlayStation VR thanks to a free update

There's a full Immersive mode and a less intense Salon mode to help prevent motion sickness

Virtual reality is an amazing way to explore Minecraft, and today PlayStation VR is also supported. Rather than charging for a revamped port, it's simply a free update to the existing PS4 version of Minecraft.

How is it? Some players even had trouble launching the game due to persistent crashes, but others didn't have such problems getting in. “There are a fair amount of settings for VR, smooth turns, and motion with capture options,” Reddit user MCalchemist said. . "I think it's a kind of game you want to play sitting for longer sessions, so I guess that's why they went with a non-tracking [DualShock 4]. Only your HMD is tracked (and you can disable appearance-based movement if you wish). " 

To be clear, you'll need to use a gamepad for Minecraft VR – there's no PlayStation Move option.

“Everything you can do in Bedrock Minecraft on PS4, you can now experience in 3D on PSVR,” according to Minecraft console producer Damian Finn. Beyond the full-fledged immersive mode shown in the trailer, there's also a "training wheels" Living Room mode where you see a flat screen in 3D space (much like "teleporting your living room into Minecraft to sit couch to play.“)

Some players have had issues switching between the two modes, and if this happens to you, check your control bindings in the settings - that seems to be the culprit. (It should be on the D-pad or L3.)

As much as the platform is showing its age, it's been a good year for PlayStation VR.
