If you have a Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) headset, Minecraft's latest update is a doozy. While you've already been able to play Minecraft in WMR, it's been a bit limited, allowing you only to play on a virtual big screen. That changes with the game's latest update on Windows 10, which lets you strap on your headset and step into your Minecraft world with a virtual reality (VR) mode.
Minecraft's WMR VR support has been in beta testing for several weeks, so it's good to see it finally become available for everyone. Support for VR on WMR headsets joins the VR versions of the game already available on Oculus Rift and Gear VR. We had a chance to go hands-on with Minecraft's immersive mode in WMR not long ago and found it to be pretty impressive, if only because it lets you see the game from a whole new perspective.
On top of additional WMR support, the Minecraft team says that Mixer integration is now built into the game. Available in beta since October, Mixer integration brings the option to start a Mixer stream from within Minecraft, as well as a support for new interactivity features. "With just a few lines of code," Microsoft says, streamers can enable options to let viewers do things like change the time of day or spawn a horde of mobs.
This comes ahead of a major update that will finally take Minecraft underwater. If you'd like to check out all of what's new, you can pick up the latest version of Minecraft for Windows 10 from the Microsoft Store now.
