Over the weekend, word on the street was that Minecraft would potentially be receiving cross-play support for the PlayStation 4 version of the game: essentially, the Bedrock version of Minecraft would be coming to Sony’s platform. Since the debut of the Bedrock Version in 2017, Mojang’s hit title has integrated cross-platform play between Xbox One, PC, mobile (Android & iOS), and Nintendo Switch.
Starting tomorrow, PlayStation 4 users will be able to download the Bedrock Version and finally be unified with the already included platforms. With the addition of PlayStation to the integrated iteration of Minecraft, this also introduces the platform to the Minecraft Marketplace which offers a whole selection of different skins, texture packs, and mini-games that are shared among all systems.
Alike the addition of this version to Minecraft on Xbox One and PC, owners of the current version for PlayStation 4 will be granted a free download for the Bedrock Version of the game. And just in time too; the previously showcased update from September that is already available on the Java Version will be making its way to the Bedrock Version later this week as well.
Mojang also released a new trailer in celebration of PlayStation 4 being added to the mix, similar to the one that Nintendo launched last year between the Switch and Xbox One.
Do you plan on picking up the Bedrock Version of Minecraft this week?
Minecraft is out now for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Android, and iOS.
