In a blog post, Mojang stated the free update also needs a launcher download from the Oculus Store in order for the VR support to work. Here are some of Minecraft's features for owners of the Rift:
- Innate keyboard and mouse support!
- VR control options for immersive comfortable turning with the Xbox One controller!
- Fancy-pants graphics stuff, like MSAA for crisp visuals, new render distance settings that will make use of powerful VR graphics cards, and optimized Windows 10 DX11 performance!
- Even more granular customisation of VR settings, so you can mix-n-match for personalised comfort!
There's also a feature called the Virtual Livingroom, which allows players to zoom out of the first-person viewpoint and play Minecraft on a big-screen TV in a simulated room, similar to how most players in the real world play the game.
