Minecraft is making the jump to PlayStation VR, Microsoft-owned developer Mojang Studios has announced.

Carpenter states that the team has been planning to bring PSVR support to Minecraft since Sony gave the OK to bring cross-play and the Bedrock version to PlayStation 4.

All Minecraft players on the PlayStation 4 will receive the patch to add PlayStation VR support, which will still utilize the DualShock 4 controller while also introducing several settings to tweak the experience.

PlayStation 4 players just need a PS VR setup in order to download the patch and get access to the new "Minecraft" VR functionality.

"Despite the pandemic adjusting how we develop Minecraft, development on Minecraft for PS VR has been relatively drama-free".

Carpenter goes on to say: "It is 100% the same Minecraft game..."

‘Russian Covid vaccine to be tested in India this month’
He further said that the preliminary results of the phase 3 trial will be published most likely by October-November-end. Clinical trials in Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates (UAE), the Philippines, India and Brazil will begin this month.

You will be given two options when playing with PSVR, namely Living Room mode, and Immersive mode. It will still be the same full game with all of the content and features, only you'll be able to experience it in an all-new, fully-immersed way.

According to Carpenter, the Minecraft x PSVR experience is actually based on Minecraft VR tech developed years ago for other VR platforms.

Minecraft is something fans have been asking for from the company for a while now and though the very popular game can already be played on various virtual reality platforms, like on Oculus Rift (launched in 2016), Sony's VR hardware has been overlooked till now.

It's worth noting that this isn't the first time "Minecraft" will be playable in VR.

Sony's "Minecraft" VR announcement shouldn't come as a surprise.
