Remember when Microsoft and Nintendo published that video showing off cross-play between Xbox One and Nintendo Switch versions of Minecraft? Well, now Sony is joining in after being reluctant for so long. With the Bedrock Edition of Minecraft offering cross-platform play between all versions of the game.

This version of Minecraft will be free and allow PS4 gamers to play with mobile, Xbox One, PS4, and PC players. In addition, PS4 players can access the Minecraft Marketplace.

“So how is this different from the version of Minecraft I can already play on my PS4?” The difference is that the Bedrock version of Minecraft is the unified version of the game that offers the same experience across all consoles. 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 (once you’re running the most recent update). Not just that, PS4 players now also have access to the Minecraft Marketplace – a source for worlds, skins, mini-games, and mash up packs! So you’re going to have not just a better Minecraft experience than ever before, but more Minecraft than ever.

Minecraft is now available on every gaming platform.
