“Kelsey”, you’re in horror,”you’ve given away the whole post in the very first sentence”. Do not worry, dear reader of Minecraft.net, there is always more — and that I get paid by the word! Wait, I do not? “So how is this different from this version of Minecraft I will already play on my PS4?” The distinction is that the Bedrock edition of Minecraft is the merged version of this game that provides exactly the identical experience across all consoles. All that magnificent, unified code means you’ll be playing the identical game as the pals on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Windows 10, and cellular! So, yes — which usually means you receive cross-play between those different consoles (once you’re running the latest upgrade ). Not just that, PS4 players now also have access to the in-game store — a source for skins, worlds, mini-games, and mash packs up! So you’re going to haven’t just a much better Minecraft experience than ever before, but more Minecraft than ever before.
“What if I already own Minecraft on PS4, do I want to buy the game again to have the Bedrock version?” — to that I say, you have a lot of questions and this really is an article, not a FAQ! However, more to the point, you can get the new version of the game free of charge. The next time you begin Minecraft, the newest upgrade will set up automatically. If you have some other questions regarding the update, please check out this helpful FAQ! So with that, we welcome the most recent addition to the Bedrock family with a hurrah! Just keep an eye out for a particular update that we can not stop buzzing about that will roll out this week.
