The PlayStation 4 version of Minecraft will feature worlds 36 times bigger than those in the PlayStation 3 version and it will take advantage of the DualShock 4’s unique feature, Mojang’s Owen Hill announced on the PlayStation Blog.
According to Hill, the developer of Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition and the other console versions of the game, 4J Studios, will allow you to use the PS4’s controller to navigate menus and craft, and you’ll of course also be able to share and stream your adventures using the console’s social features.
As with the PS3 version of Minecraft, the PS4 version will also include “a heap” of Trophies and Sony-specific DLC that will release soon after launch. The game will support up to eight players online, four of which will be able to play on the same machine with split-screen.
If you already bought the PS3 version, you can upgrade to the PS4 version for $5, and also import your saves from PS3 to PS4, but not from PS4 to PS3 due to technical reasons.
Both the Xbox One and PS4 versions of Minecraft are set to release this August.
