Microsoft has brought wireless controller support to Samsung Gear VR as part of their Play Anywhere program. This enables Samsung Gear VR games with controller support compatibility with the new Xbox wireless controller.
This includes Minecraft: Gear VR Edition, Herobound, Spirit Champion, Omega Agent, and End Space, with more planned for the future.
Beyond Minecraft: Gear VR Edition, we’re working hard to make the Xbox Wireless Controller compatible with all controller-supported Gear VR games and future games too. Keep an eye out for more news on the release timing in the coming months. Once available, all you need to do is update your controller, and you’ll be ready to play. Please read the game’s description for details on controller compatibility.
