Mojang has revealed that the PS4 version of Minecraft will be releasing in August, featuring worlds 36 times bigger than the ones you might be used to on Playstation 3. Furthermore, existing players will be able to import Playstation 3 saves to the Playstation 4 version, alowing them to continue work on an immense structure or delve even deeper towards the Nether.
Anyone who’s previously bought Playstation 3 Edition will be able to upgrade to Playstation 4 Edition for a small fee. This applies to everyone who’s bought Minecraft digitally and transfers their PSN account to their new console. Disc version of the game cannot be upgraded yet, but keep an eye out for more information.
There’ll be a heap of Trophies to be earned for the hunters and a bunch of Sony-specific DLC coming soon after release. The PS4 version of Minecraft will support up to eight players online, and up to four of those will be able to log in via one Playstation 4 thanks to the compact convenience of split-screen.
