The first thing players need to do is to set up and pair the Oculus Link. It is Meta’s official software for playing games using the PC on the Quest 2. Oculus Link is also crucial for streaming the game on the PC.

The next step is installing a copy of Minecraft Bedrock Edition on your PC. Therefore, you need to install the game from the Microsoft Store for Windows or Xbox Game Pass library for Xbox users.

Despite the game having VR support, there is a need to take extra steps to ensure the game launches without issues. So players need to open the Oculus Link app on the PC. On the left side of the screen, look for the Settings button and click on it.

Click on the General tab to open its settings. You will see the Unknown Sources option at the top of the General Settings. Put it on, and you will now be ready to enjoy the VR game without problems.

From the headset, head to the Oculus Link to open its interface. Launch the Minecraft app and put on your headset. Wait several minutes for the game to load, then begin looking around.

You will now be able to play Minecraft VR on Quest 2. Use the controllers to move and control your hands to dig around and perform other movements. To exit the game, press the Oculus button and select Quit to return to the Link screen. To re-enter the game, repeat the same procedure and enjoy the game.
