Minecraft VR Oculus Quest 2
Virtual reality as a particularly immersive gaming experience reached Minecraft back in 2016. PS4 VR and Oculus Rift offer you the possibility to immerse yourself completely in your block world. With a small workaround, you can also play Minecraft VR with your PC on all-in-one systems like the Oculus Quest 2.
The Oculus Quest 2 is currently considered the best VR-package on the market by many players. To play Minecraft on the Oculus Quest 2, however, you also need a PC.
How to play Minecraft VR on the Oculus Quest 2
There are two different ways to play Minecraft on the Oculus Quest 2. For the first one, you need the Java Edition, and for the second one, you need the Bedrock Edition.
Minecraft Java Edition
The following instructions show you how to play the Java edition on the Oculus Quest 2. To do this, you first need to install Java and the Java Edition of Minecraft. Then proceed as follows:
- Install Steam VR.
- Install Vivecraft. This is what you need to play Minecraft with Steam VR. You can choose the amount of RAM that will be allocated to Minecraft VR during the installation. It is recommended that you select half of the total RAM available.
- Install and launch Virtual Desktop.
- Connect your Oculus Quest 2 to your PC via a USB 3.0 cable.
- Launch Steam VR and then launch the Minecraft Launcher.
- Select Vivecraft as your profile and launch Minecraft VR.
Minecraft Bedrock Edition
Unlike the Java edition, the Bedrock edition is intended for use with VR. However, since the Bedrock Edition cannot be modded, there is a lot to be said for the above procedure. However, if you have installed the Minecraft Bedrock Edition from the Microsoft Store, proceed as follows:
- Install Oculus Link.
- Install Minecraft within Oculus Link.
- If you haven’t already, install Minecraft Bedrock Edition from the Microsoft Store.
- Connect your Oculus Quest 2 to your PC.
