Minecraft for Windows 10 is adding support for the Oculus Rift VR headset in the “next few weeks.”

Think of it as a “thank-you for your continued support over the past year,” Minecraft Executive Producer Jesse Merriam wrote in a blog post.

Those who own Minecraft Windows 10 Edition and an Oculus Rift will be able to jump right into the game; just log into your Mojang account and click the redeem button for free access.

“And, if playing around with VR Minecraft sounds excellent … and you haven’t upgraded your PC to Windows 10 yet, don’t worry—there’s still time,” Merriam said. Not much, though: Redmond’s free upgrade offer ends today.

Minecraft maker Mojang confirmed the news in a Thursday blog post, promising players “a whole new perspective on their favorite game.”

A VR version is already available to Samsung Gear VR owners. And the Rift version promises familiar features like multiplayer, Creative, and Survival gameplay modes.
