Where the heck is Minecraft VR in Quest 2?

The first time I played Minecraft in VR, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Not only did the unique voxel style of Minecraft finally feel real, but playing in VR allowed me to play the game in a way that wasn’t possible before. If you’ve ever played Minecraft, you’ll understand how innovative it is to be able to look around or behind blocks without having to crouch or walk around them.

Ironically, I actually played it using the original Oculus Quest and a wired connection to my PC, as the Oculus PC app remains the only official way to play current and updated versions of Minecraft in VR to this day. Unfortunately, aside from having a VR compatible PC, the only way to play Minecraft in Quest 2 is via Questcraft (opens in a new tab) – that is, at least, until Meta broke the game’s functionality in version 44 of the Quest firmware in September.
