The update's most notable feature is the addition of PS4 cross-play with all other current-generation Minecraft platforms including Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, mobile, and PC.

Our national nightmare is over: Microsoft announced today that Minecraft cross-play is finally coming to the PlayStation 4. How amusing it is to see the same "Create together, Explore together, Survive together" banner spread across red, green, and blue tiles just over a year later. Anyone who already owns Minecraft on PS4 will be able to upgrade to the Bedrock Edition for free.

"Nothing else changes for Switch owners - if your copy of Minecraft is up to date, you'll already have the Bedrock edition of the game - but we have been treated to a look at how this PS4 update can improve Switch players" lives in the trailer above. To cross-play with Xbox One players, you'll need to log in to an Xbox Live account, though you won't need Gold or any paid access. Naturally, PS4 players will also earn PlayStation trophies rather than Xbox achievements. "We've been talking to our partners at Sony about this for a while, and think now is the right time from both a studio and community perspective to bring PS4 players along on the Bedrock journey", a spokesperson said. Don't worry, beloved reader of PlayStation Blog, there is always more!

You can expect Minecraft's Bedrock update (Buzzy Bees, version 1.14) to be available to download on December 10th, starting at 8am PST.
