The bug fixing update for the PS4 version of Minecraft has been in testing for around two weeks now and finally, it is live in Europe. Developer 4J Studios has not revealed a release date for the patch in North America, but it shouldn’t take long.
The update will fix frame rate issues in jungle along with rendering issues of glass blocks, when placed next to each other. 4J has also added a new “Copy Save” option for players to back up their progress in another save.
