A VR version of Minecraft is already available for Gear VR and HTC Vive and many times, Mojang has hinted that the game will come to Oculus Rift. It seems that in the coming weeks, “Minecraft Windows 10 Edition” will receive Oculus Rift support. Jesse Merriam, executive producer for Minecraft, has announced in a blog post that those who own Windows 10 Edition and an Oculus Rift “can jump right in and start experiencing Minecraft in a whole new way.”

Marsh Davies of Mojang has also mentioned that the team at Blockworks, which is formed from architects, artists and designers, has made “the amazing roller coaster map” and all Minecraft fans are allowed to download it. He added that “Our work is not done: soon we’ll be introducing add-ons which let you dramatically modify the rules of the game.”

Also, players on the “Minecraft Windows 10 Edition” and “Minecraft Pocket Edition” should know that a new update has just been released. Version 0.15.4 comes the villains skin pack and other bug fixes. According to the change log, this update fixed localization bugs, the issue related to HUD moving when riding an animal in VR, other texture issues and draw distance for Win 10 edition was increased. The update comes also with some tweaks to Gear VR edition performance and experience.

The new “Minecraft” Villains Skin Pack that will be available for the Pocket Edition and Windows 10 Edition will cost $1.99, but players will have the possibility to get some of the skins for free, in case they won’t want to purchase the skin pack. Mojang has invited players to grab this skin pack “and join forces with Minecraft’s most dastardly denizens: slink from the shadows as the sinister Stronghold Seer, unleash the fury as the ferocious Lava Fiend, or, er, sell silverfish as the monstrous Silverfish Monger. The evilest of all mongers! Then there’s the grotesque Patchkin, the enigmatic Endergaunt, the chilling Eyece, the Terror Spawner, Dungeon Spectre, Slymime and Cake Maniac.”
