Minecraft for ps4

Minecraft for ps4 DEFAULT

Beginning on Dec. 10, the PlayStation 4 version of Minecraft will allow for cross-platform play. That means players across every major gaming platform — Nintendo Switch, Windows, Xbox One, iOS and Android, as well as Gear VR devices — will now be able to play together in the same online world.

After generations of exclusivity, default cross-platform play in modern video games is a relatively new concept. It began in earnest in late 2018 when Epic Games’ Fortnitehelped convince the major console manufacturers to play nice. Throughout 2019, more and more titles have piled on, including Destiny 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Now Minecraft joins the fray, but there’s a twist.

“PS4 players will now have their purchases and progress carry across platforms,” wrote Mojang’s Kelsey Howard in today’s press release. That means worlds, skins, min-games, and mas up packs available on the Minecraft Marketplace will all be accessible across every platform.

Minecraftis the single best-selling game of all time, beating out Tetris with a reported 176 million units sold. That’s in part why Polygon named it one of the most important games of the last decade.

Minecraft for PlayStation 4™ FAQ

This page answers frequently asked questions about Minecraft on PlayStation 4™.

Frequently asked questions about Minecraft for PlayStation 4™

What is the Bedrock version of Minecraft?

The Bedrock version of Minecraft (also known as the Bedrock Engine-powered version) has been the codebase on mobile and Windows 10 since 2012. We brought this version to Xbox in 2017, Nintendo Switch in 2018, and on PlayStation 4™ in 2019.

How is this version different from the one I already own?

Minecraft delivers a unified experience to players on all platforms that use the Bedrock codebase. You can build with friends via cross-play no matter what device they’re using, play multiplayer mini-games, and customize how you play with community content available through the in-game Marketplace/Minecraft Store.

I already own Minecraft: PS4™ Edition. How do I get this newer version?

Players who already own Minecraft: PS4™ Edition received the newer version of Minecraft at no additional cost. Update your game with the latest patch and follow the instructions within the patch notes.

Will DLC that I currently own transfer over to the newer version of Minecraft?

Most existing downloadable content (DLC) is transferable from Minecraft: PS4™ Edition to the newer version of Minecraft. However, some content may not be available to use on the newer version, and some content may only be used on your PS4™.

What’s a Microsoft account and why do I need one for PS4™?

A Microsoft account is optional and not required to play Minecraft on PS4™. It’s a free account you can use to sign in on a device. It allows Minecraft players on PS4™ to play with other players on non-PS4™ devices like iOS, Android, Xbox, Switch, and Windows devices.

Having a Microsoft account also enables the portability of your Marketplace (devices other than PS4) or Minecraft Store (PS4) purchases to other devices and platforms. To create a new Microsoft account, go to:

Note After a Microsoft account has been linked to a PlayStation™ Network account, it can’t be unlinked without loss of access to entitlements and Minecoins on other platforms.

Now that I have a Microsoft account, how do I sign in on my PS4™?

  1. Be sure to use the account details for the Microsoft account you want associated with your PlayStation™ Network account. This can’t be undone. You won’t be able to link another Microsoft account to your PS4™ account.
  2. On the Minecraft game home screen, select Sign in with a Microsoft account.
  3. This brings up a screen that provides you with a unique 8-digit code and instructs you to go to http://aka.ms/remoteconnect.
  4. Complete your sign-in by following the instructions on this site to enter the 8-digit code.

How do I find my friends on their Microsoft accounts?

  1. After you’ve signed in to your Microsoft account, select Play on the home screen.
  2. Go to the Friends tab.
  3. Select Add Friend.
  4. Find friends by entering their Microsoft gamertags.

I keep entering my friend’s ID and can’t find them. Why?

Make sure that you’re entering your friend’s gamertag correctly. Note that you’re only able to enter a Microsoft gamertag as a player ID. Player IDs from other platforms are not supported at this time.

Do I need a subscription to play online?

An Xbox subscription is not required for PlayStation™ players. However, a PlayStation® Plus subscription is required for multiplayer gaming. A free Microsoft account is optional but recommended for players to get the most out of this version of Minecraft.

What is the Minecraft Store?

The Minecraft Store, which you can find in-game, is where players can purchase character skins, textures, and worlds. With the Minecraft Store, we've made it safer and easier to purchase community-made content for Minecraft. Content purchased while signed in with a Microsoft account can be enjoyed on any device and will not expire.

Purchasable with real currency in the Minecraft Store, tokens let you buy content from creators in our store safely and securely on the PS4 only. Tokens are kept in your virtual wallet, which can only be used in your PS4™ account.

Can I use my Minecoins on PS4™?

No, but you can continue using your Minecoins on non-PS4™ Bedrock platforms. Content purchased on other platforms, unless the content is restricted to a particular platform, will be usable on your PS4™.

Do my existing worlds transfer?

Yes, your existing worlds from Minecraft: PS4™ Edition will convert to the newer version of Minecraft. Worlds on PS3™ will need to be converted to PS4™ and opened in Minecraft: PS4™ Edition first, to ensure that the worlds transfer over properly.

How do I transfer existing worlds?

To transfer existing worlds from Minecraft: PS4™ Edition to Minecraft:

  1. In Minecraft (Bedrock Version), select the Sync Old Worlds button on the bottom of the worlds list in the play menu. This will let you find any worlds on the device from Minecraft: PS4™ Edition and display them below the button.
  2. Select any of the worlds displayed to convert it to the Bedrock edition.
  3. After conversion, the world will show up above the Sync Old Worlds button, along with the rest of your Bedrock worlds.

How big are worlds in this version of Minecraft for PS4™?

Minecraft worlds are now expanded and there’s no world border within the world.

I’m playing in a world that was transferred from the previous version. Are there limitations on the size?

Transferring to Minecraft should change the world type to infinite, keeping the portions of the world from the Minecraft: PS4™ Edition the same, but generating new chunks outside of that area.

How do I link my previous purchases on other Minecraft Bedrock versions to my PS4™ game?

Sign in to Minecraft and in to your Microsoft account. All Marketplace/Minecraft Store items will sync automatically with other purchases you’ve made on other Bedrock versions, as long as those purchases were made while signed in to that same Microsoft account and are purchases that can roam to PS4™.

I own Minecraft: PS4™ Edition and I’ve bought previous DLC. How do I get it to sync to Minecraft?

Sign in to Minecraft on your PS4™ and you’ll be granted the entitlements for that DLC in the latest version automatically.

Will my copy of Minecraft: PS4™ Edition go away? Do I have to use the newer one?

Minecraft: PS4™ Edition is no longer available to purchase, but existing owners can continue to play it if they wish. It’s available as an option inside the game. There will be no further updates to Minecraft: PS4™ Edition.

How many Microsoft accounts can I tie to my PlayStation™ Network account?

You can only tie one Microsoft account to a PlayStation™ Network account.

What happens if I unlink my Microsoft account?

After a Microsoft account has been linked to a PlayStation™ Network account, it can’t be unlinked without loss of access to entitlements and Minecoins on other platforms.

Where are Minecraft Realms/Minecraft Realms Plus?

Minecraft Realms/Minecraft Realms Plus are available on PS4™.

Can I connect to a server?

Yes, you can connect to a server with your PS4™.

Can I connect to a custom server not in the server list?

Due to console platform policy, you can’t connect to a server that’s not in the servers list.

I have a custom skin on another Bedrock platform. Can I use it on PS4™?

If the custom skin was created with the in-game Character Creator, yes. If the custom skin was uploaded to your device, it will not transfer to your PS4™ system. This is also true for Xbox and Nintendo Switch players.

Does Minecraft support PlayStation®VR?

Yes, you can play Minecraft on PlayStation®VR.

Does Minecraft on PlayStation™ have the RenderDragon graphics engine for Bedrock?

Yes, RenderDragon has been implemented.

How do I play split screen without a PlayStation® Plus subscription?

Multiplayer must be turned off in the level settings prior to loading any account that’s not enabled for PlayStation® Plus before they attempt to join in split screen.

Does Minecraft for PS4™ support mouse and keyboard input?

Yes, you can use your mouse and keyboard with Minecraft for PS4™.

Can players unlock Xbox achievements in Minecraft for PS4™?

Since PlayStation already has its own award system, players of Minecraft for PS4™ can unlock trophies.

If I download the update, can I revert to the prior update?

No, but if you want to access Minecraft: PS4™ Edition, it’s an option you can choose from the first screen. If you choose Bedrock and want to play the PS4™ Edition, you can choose this from the in-game menu.

Does the update reset your trophies?

No, your trophy status is maintained and additional trophies from Bedrock are added. However, you can only migrate progress toward unlocking trophies from PS4™ Edition to Bedrock once.
