For Minecraft players who have been waiting to play with friends on PlayStation 4 the wait is finally over. Starting tomorrow a new update for Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition will be released. This new Bedrock version will allow cross-play between all platforms and will be available to download for other platforms to allow this cross-play.
All that glorious, unified code means that players will now have the same experience and updates moving forward across Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Windows 10, PS4 and mobile! So, that means there will be cross-play between those different consoles. Purchases and progress will also carry over across platforms if players are signed into their free Microsoft Account, and PS4 players can now access the ever-growing Minecraft Marketplace.
Are there any conditions to the update or cross-play?
Not really! The update to Bedrock is free for all existing PlayStation 4 players and never expires. The Bedrock version will be the only purchasable option on PS4 moving forward. Players on other platforms who want to play with friends on PS4 just need to be running the latest build of Minecraft and have their platform-dependent online service set up (e.g. PS Plus, Xbox Live, Nintendo Switch Online), and be signed into their free Microsoft Account.
Be ready and update your game tomorrow and enjoy playing with your friends regardless of what platform they play on. Stay tuned to Gaming Trend for all your gaming news.
