Today, shortly after announcing a PSVR Spotlight event, PlayStation and Mojang have finally confirmed that Minecraft is getting full PlayStation VR support, coming later this month.
Every owner of Minecraft on PS4 will gain the PSVR support completely free of charge, through a patch that will be delivered automatically.
This surprise announcement headlines PlayStation’s PSVR spotlight, which will include multiple game announcements, updates for previously launched games, and a sale on the PS Store. It is currently unknown what will also be announced.
Rather than limited features and modes, Mojang emphasised that the PSVR mode includes every single feature and mechanic as the normal PS4 version. Additionally, Mojang describes the game as “100% wholesome & pure full-fat Minecraft.” It will also include multiple comfort and control settings that the player can tinker with to have the best experience possible.
Also of note is that Minecraft PSVR is only playable with the DualShock 4, and not the PlayStation Moves. Exclusion of the PlayStation Move controllers is the approach also being taken by IOI Interactive for Hitman 3’s PSVR support, who have repeatedly highlighted that the DualShock 4 is the only way to play the game.
The PSVR spotlight starts today and will run until the 23rd of September, but it will not include any PS5 information.
