Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition to get Oculus Rift support "in the next few weeks"

It's been ten months since Oculus announced that its Rift virtual reality (VR) headset would get support for Minecraft, the blocky, world-building hit game from Mojang, part of the Microsoft empire since 2014.

Today, as Microsoft celebrated the first anniversary of its release of Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta, the company also revealed that the long wait for Rift support will soon be at an end.

"In the next few weeks," Microsoft said today, "we are adding Oculus Rift support to the Windows 10 Edition Beta in a free update as our thank-you for your continued support over the past year. If you own Windows 10 Edition and an Oculus Rift, you can jump right in and experience Minecraft in a whole new way.

The Rift won't be the first VR headset to get Minecraft support though. In April, Microsoft launched Minecraft: Gear VR Edition for Samsung's headset, which the South Korean tech giant developed in collaboration with Oculus.
