Shortly after the news broke earlier this week that Facebook had bought Oculus VR for $2 billion, Minecraft developer Markus “Notch” Persson took to the interwebs to declare that Minecraft integration with the Oculus Rift would be canceled, something about Oculus being a sellout and Facebook being evil. Because Minecraft would never sell out like that. Never. Nope.
We’ve all seen plenty of really impressive Minecraft sculptures. Hell, I thought I was super cool when I built a Minecraft pyramid. But one guy has decided to take it upon himself to re-create this entire godforsaken planet block by block. All of it.
If you like Minecraft as more of a sandbox game than anything else, you might be interested to know that Creative Mode is coming to the Xbox version of the game in a matter or weeks. Creative Mode gives you access to all the blocks, so you can just build build build without spending all day mining for a single diamond node, for example.
In addition to Creative Mode, the new update will also add mine shafts, ravines and strongholds.
