Development of the PlayStation 4 version of Minecraft has finally been concluded and the game has been sent to Sony for final testing, developer 4J Studios announced today.
“We’ve handed Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition over to Sony for final test!” reads an earlier Tweet.
Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition brings a number of unique features, including the optional support for the DualShock 4 Touch Pad. Players can also transfer their save files from both the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, as well as “a bunch of Sony-specific DLC coming soon after release.”
Upon release, those who already own the game on PlayStation 3 will have the option of upgrading their purchase on Sony’s new console for the mere price of $5. Those who have yet to experience the pixelated world will have to purchase it on the PS4 for its full cost.
Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition still has no specific release date. With the game being sent to Sony for final testing, it wouldn’t be long now before 4J Studios give us a number.
Chances for it being available before the holiday season this year seem high, unless there’s a hiccup on the developer’s end.
