From Tuesday 10 December, developer Mojang announced a new update will roll out for PS4 Minecraft players to upgrade to the united Bedrock version.
The free update will install automatically and will activate crossplay across Xbox One, Windows 10, Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android mobile devices, Gear VR and now PlayStation 4 – meaning they’ll now be able to play in the same world.
Any purchases and progress for Minecraft PS4 players will carry over across platforms. They’ll also have access to the Minecraft Marketplace, where they can buy worlds, skins, mini-games and mash up packs.
Sony has been weirdly hesitant about crossplay in the past, refusing to support the function entirely with Fortnite which drew criticism from fans.
They’ve gradually become more open to the idea in wake of criticism, enabling it with Rocket League earlier this year and most recently with Call Of Duty Modern Warfare.
The Bedrock edition of Minecraft has been the default version of the title across all consoles except Sony, which was ported over by Scottish studio 4J Studios.
Minecraft is arguably the biggest game in the world and was recently revealed to be the most watched game on YouTube with 100 billion views.
