Mine craft’s Hololens version of the game was demonstrated at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), and if you view it, it will surprise you just like it did to everyone who watched it live
The tech giant Microsoft acquired “Minecraft” for a price of $2.5 billion in 2014, and after that on Monday it unveiled plans to develop a new version of the game, which will be the company’s next step focused on its augmented-reality Hololens headset.
Microsoft’s technology was doomed to hit the game franchise, enabling users to play the world-building Xbox One game in a very interesting way now. As unveiled at Microsoft’s E3 conference in Los Angeles, Minecraft can now be played wearing a HoloLens, after which users can display the Minecraft game on their coffee table or wall.
The gameplay remains the game, but users can now control the game in an entirely different way, using voice commands and hand gestures to check out angles in 3-D mode. The developers have eliminated the use of just a controller to enjoy the game, and users can now simply interact with the 3-D hologram popup in front of them.
Minecraft’s Hololens version of the game was demonstrated at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), and if you view it, it will surprise you just like it did to everyone who watched it live. People gave Microsoft a huge round of applause at the conference, and it was truly deserved. Microsoft has put in some serious technology in its HoloLens headset, and the device definitely lived up to its expectations after the big announcement that took place at the start of this year.
The HoloLens is manufactured to run solely on the developers very own Windows Holographic. This enables it to overlay objects in the real-world, and tracks wearers hand gestures.
However, Microsoft did not disclose when the HoloLens version for Mine craft will roll out, and that was expected as the HoloLens itself doesn’t have a release date as yet. Rumors state, the HoloLens will be more expensive than an Xbox One standard game console. For now, check out Minecraft on a table in the video link below: Vine
