Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition is the Legacy Console Edition version of Minecraft developed by 4J Studios and Mojang Studios for the PlayStation 4.[8] 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.[9] 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 the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch editions players, the PlayStation 4 Edition owners have the option to download the Bedrock version for free, however not all DLC will transfer. As with many games that are released on the PlayStation 4, Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition can be played on the PlayStation Vita through Remote Play.

Compared to the 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. The PlayStation 4 Edition has all Legacy Console Edition exclusive features, the most notable being Mini games.

As of 1.95, the PlayStation 4 Edition has not received new feature updates, such as Buzzy Bees, the Nether Update, and Caves & Cliffs: Part I. The PlayStation 4 Edition is playable on the PlayStation 5 via backwards compatibility.

The PlayStation 4 Edition's most recent feature update is Village & Pillage.


In default settings, the controls are always displayed on the HUD. The controls for PlayStation 4 Edition are similar to PlayStation 3 Edition and alongside touchpad support.


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 terminated in April 15, 2020.
