The tutorial spawns a player near an unfinished house that they need to complete in the tutorial. They have to follow all the steps in the tutorial in order to be given the rest of the seed. A player can also choose to skip it. After the tutorial, a player can then go into an area that gives them examples of Trading, breeding, enchanting, ender chest, redstone use, homes, and more. There is also a small castle that can light up, if a player can fix it. There is a nearby village that is incorrect as well as a ship with a Creeper face on it in the distance.
As of the recent update to include horses, the tutorial level has been changed. It is now the same as the PlayStation Vita tutorial.
Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition and all other PlayStation editions of Minecraft do not currently use the cross-platform feature, disallowing cross-platform play. No explanation has been given regarding Sony's decision.
