Google Earth VR puts the whole world within your reach. Explore the world from totally new perspectives as you stroll the streets of Tokyo, soar over the Grand Canyon, or teleport across the globe. Allow yourself to relax as you take in breathtaking scenery, quietly plan your next vacation, or simply experience the quiet beauty of the Earth.

It comes with cinematic tours and hand-picked destinations that send you to the Amazon River, the Manhattan skyline, the Grand Canyon, the Swiss Alps, and many more.

Instead of using your cursor or finger to drag your way around a street or through a field as you would with basic Google Earth, the VR mode allows you to actually move around the space. You can duck down in your VR headset to get closer to the ground or lift your controllers up to soar through the air above buildings and hills.

For having been around as long as it has, Minecraft is more alive than ever. Do all the things you know and love – but from a fresh perspective. With a VR headset on, you can enter expansive worlds and spend hours building whatever creation you wish, explore the world, or enjoy the light of a gorgeous sunrise.

Immersive yourself in this wonderfully classic game and enjoy the relaxation of freedom in your own world.

Modifications for VR Play:

  • The Virtual Living Room – Full immersion VR can be intense, so this option allows you to step out of the world and play this open-world VR game on a screen in a simulated lounge. It’s a great way to give yourself a bit of a break without stopping playing
  • VR Turning – moving around fast can feel disorientating in VR with your body not doing what your eyes are seeing. This allows you to turn in snappy increments rather than a single arc. It feels quite surprising at first, but it quickly feels normal and is easier on the brain.
  • Enhanced VR controls – tiny, clever tweaks to the way you jump, walk, and run make VR feel as smooth as possible. You can use your head to steer where your character goes, and the cursor now sticks to blocks as you dig at them – so you can take in the sights while you mine

Minecraft can be played on most PC VR headsets, but the steps to get playing depend on what headset you have and what store you purchase Minecraft from.
