Minecraft is one of the most popular games out there played by millions of people from every corner of the planet because of its broad appeal and depth of gameplay.

During the Minecon 2016 event, Microsoft announced a few pieces of news about the franchise. In addition to the previously announced Boss Update Add-On available on October 18th, other add-ons will also be released that day as well.

Jesse Merriam, Executive Producer for Minecraft, Microsoft, said that “with add-ons, you’ll be able to experiment with remixing components of entities or characters in the game. Worlds you create with Add-Ons can be shared with others directly or uploaded to your Realms and accessed anytime, anywhere.”

Merriam also added that in addition to new gameplay features and the ability for players to customize the game itself, new input options would be added. The Boss Update will allow you to use your Xbox Wireless Controller with Bluetooth while you’re playing the Gear VR and Windows 10 Editions. And the good news doesn’t end here, as VR players of the Windows 10 Edition will be getting an update to support Oculus Touch input.

The Boss Update will surely be an interesting feature in Minecraft, but what’s even better is the added support for Oculus Touch and the Xbox Wireless Controller. These updates will definitely enhance the gaming experience, helping Minecraft gain even more popularity.

What are your thoughts about the upcoming Minecraft October Update? Will you use the virtual reality features once added to the game?
