Even though Minecraft has been on PlayStation 4 for a while now, the Bedrock Edition that launches tomorrow means that PS4 owners are getting the platform-unified version of Mojang's game, which in turn means they're finally capable of firing it up in cross-play.
"All that glorious, unified code means that you'll be playing the same game as your pals on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Windows 10, and mobile! So, yes - that means you get cross-play between those different consoles", reads the announcement on the PlayStation Blog.
PS4 owners will now have access to the Minecraft Marketplace, which is your go-to place for all things cosmetic, as well as some mini-games.
If you're already a Minecraft player on Sony's console, you don't have to buy the game again or anything - your next play-session will feature an automatic and free-of-charge update that will bring you up to speed with the rest of the Minecraftsmen.
"This update will never expire, and all game purchases after today for PS4 will always be for this new version", the announcement says. The version they're referring to is 1.14, so make sure you're running that one before panicking.
Note that Minecraft's 1.14 update, also called the , comes with a series of Mojang-hosted live streams, while all the proceeds from the sales of Character Creator Bumblebee costume from the Minecraft Marketplace go to World Wildlife Fund for the purpose of bee conservation.
