It has today been announced that Minecraft is making its way to virtual reality, launching on the Oculus Store today for the Gear VR headset, it has been named the Minecraft: Gear VR Edition and is priced at $6.99.

That all said, the game is just available for the Gear VR, and not the Oculus Rift, so you should make sure you note that before you get too excited.

Oculus explained with the following:

Minecraft: Gear VR Edition supports all the features of Pocket Edition, including Creative and Survival modes, skins, and multiplayer. You can choose between the more comfortable default theater view or the more intense and immersive first-person view that lets you stand beside your creations.

We also know that there is a version of Minecraft in development for the Oculus Rift, so you can expect that at some point.

Check out the video below for a look at the Gear VR version.
