Minecraft will meet Oculus Rift soon

You may already know it but, Minecraft on Windows 10 is now one year old ! On july 28th 2015, Minecraft landed on Windows 10, and according to its developer Mojang : “It’s been a busy year: 12,000 code check-ins, 6000 bugs squashed, 15 major updates and oodles of new features“. For this very special occasion, the group released a brand new Villains skin pack, and last month Realms made it easy for players on VR, Pocket Edition and Windows 10 to play together in persistent worlds which change and grow, even while you are away.

But the work is not done yet, and Mojang announces that he’ll be introducing add-ons which let you dramatically modify the rules of the game, and, in the coming weeks, the company will enable (free) support for the Oculus Rift, giving players a whole new perspective on their favourite game !

Over the last year, zombie villagers got upgraded wardrobes, while rabbits got new coats and headed out to the desert and snow biomes. Squid learned how to flee and cauldrons learned how to dye armor. Somewhere along the way baby zombies even learned how to ride chickens,  Acacia villages started popping up in your worlds and rumor has it that shears will even show you the true face of an unsuspecting snow golem. Don’t worry, more cool stuff is in the pipeline for Windows 10 and Pocket Edition claims Mojang, so get prepared for more and more Minecraft and the next weeks.
