Minecraft: Bedrock Edition supports PS VR on PS4, free update rolling out now

After we covered it earlier this month, Minecraft, Mojang Studios’ world-renowned sandbox survival title, is finally catching on. support for Sony’s PS VR. This means that players who own Minecraft: Bedrock Edition on Playstation 4 and the PS VR headset can now jump straight into the game, providing a more immersive (albeit sometimes disconcerting) experience. This update is completely free for all users and is rolling out starting today. If you don’t see it immediately, check manually or wait a bit longer.

The update comes with a modest changelog which quickly reviews the changes made with the 1.16.42 update:

  • VR support is included free for all PlayStation 4 Minecraft owners
  • Includes Immersive Mode and Living Room Mode to play the way you want
  • Introduces a host of new settings to customize your VR experience

Immersive mode is classic virtual reality, allowing players to “become” Steve and play the game as if they were actually there. Living room mode is a little less likely to cause motion sickness and allows players to play on a massive virtual screen inside the headset, as if they were playing Minecraft in a movie theater instead of their living room. There are also settings for players to customize their VR experience.
