|This page describes an edition of the game that has been officially discontinued.|
This edition is no longer updated or available for download and has been replaced with Bedrock Edition.
Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition is the edition of Minecraft developed by 4J Studios and Mojang Studios for the PlayStation 4. It was announced on August 20, 2013 at Sony Interactive Entertainment's exhibit at Gamescom 2013 and was available for purchase on the PlayStation Store for $19.99 between September 4, 2014 and December 9, 2019, when Bedrock Edition was released on the platform. Existing digital owners are still able to access, re-download, and play this version. A retail version was released on October 3, 2014 and can still be purchased. DLC for the game is still available on the PlayStation Store. Like Xbox One Edition and Nintendo Switch Edition players, PlayStation 4 Edition owners have the option to download the Bedrock version for free, however not all DLC will transfer. As with most games that are released on the PlayStation 4, Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition can be played on the PlayStation Vita through Remote Play.
Compared to PlayStation 3 Edition, PlayStation 4 Edition includes world sizes up to 5120×5120 blocks (36 times larger), 18 chunk render distance, amplified worlds, and other enhancements offered by the PlayStation 4. PlayStation 4 Edition has all Legacy Console Edition exclusive features, the most notable being Mini games.
The game is similar to PlayStation 3 Edition, but supports the enhancements offered by the PlayStation 4. Players were able to transfer and expand upon worlds created on PlayStation 3 Edition and PlayStation Vita Edition, however this feature was suddenly terminated by Microsoft on April 15, 2020.
