PlayStation VR is getting another game in its catalog. Mojang has announced that Minecraft PSVR is coming this September.
There is one catch, however. Players who are expecting new content from this port might be disappointed. Mojang revealed that the upcoming titles will be the same as the original, only in VR form.
“It is 100% the same Minecraft game that you can play every day, every week, every month, every year…on PlayStation 4. Nothing removed. 100% wholesome & pure full-fat Minecraft,” Mojang stated via PlayStation blog.

Changes coming for a better VR experience
According to Roger Carpenter, executive producer for Minecraft, there will be user interface changes that need to be done. It includes support for Immersive and Living Room modes.
However, the DualShock 4 will still be the standard controller for the game.
Carpenter also confirmed that the whole team has been working on Minecraft VR for some time now. Mojang has been working on it since the cross-platform play was confirmed by Sony.
SkyBox Labs worked with Mojang in making the VR version possible. However, both companies have not confirmed the actual release date yet.
But there is a possibility that the upcoming September update will go live automatically for PlayStation 4 users. This removes the unnecessary step of dropping by the PlayStation network.
Minecraft VR has been available on the Oculus for some time now. But it is only now that Mojang has created the PlayStation VR version of the game. It is only fitting that the game gets the PSVR treatment considering its huge player base.
