Minecraft Ps4 Finally Added ‘featured Servers’
as of the 1.16.100 update, the year-long dormant Featured Servers tab is now populated with the 6 joinable large-scale multiplayer servers already enjoyed by the other platforms . PS4 was by far the last in line to get them. Previously the only multiplayer option was joining personal worlds of friends when they were online.
Mostly the Featured Servers host various mini-games, variants, and mods of Minecraft, like Sky Wars, Egg Wars, Hide & Seek, Hunger Games, etc. They also have extensive custom world/hub/level design. This is not your mother’s vanilla survival mode. Some of them will echo the Legacy Console Edition’s 3 multiplayer mini games Battle, Tumble, and Glide. Personal recommendation is CubeCraft’s Egg Wars Teams of 4.
Should be a breath of life for both PS4 players and those servers with the influx of new players. Of course since PS5 is backwards compatible with PS4 games this means PS5 owners can also join . Someday there will surely be native PS5, XSX/S versions as well.
NOTE: Realms , the other missing PS4 feature, have still yet to arrive.
How Do You Add Friends In Cross
Navigate to the far-right and select Invite to Game. On the next screen, select the option to Find Cross Platform Friends. Find your friend using their Minecraft ID or gamertag, then select Add Friend. You can also use this screen to block or report them, if youve had a bad experience.
‘minecraft: Bedrock Edition’ Allows Cross
“Minecraft: Bedrock Edition” is playable on Windows 10 PCs, Xbox One and Series S/X, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, iOS and iPadOS devices, and Android devices.;
If you’re playing “Minecraft: Bedrock Edition,” you can add friends and play with them on any other system. They just have to be playing “Bedrock Edition” too.
Quick tip: Be aware that you may not see the word “Bedrock” when you buy a copy of “Minecraft” for your console the subtitle is generally omitted in the marketing. On PCs, for example, it’s often called just “Minecraft for Windows 10.”
If you’re playing that version, or any version of “Minecraft” on a console or phone, you’re playing “Bedrock.”

So, I’m very new Minecraft, and really am enjoying it so far. I am playing on a PS4 – when i try join a server it says that it’s “coming soon”. After a bit of Googling, it looks like servers aren’t available yet for the PS4. How is it that people on this forum are playing on servers, on their PS4s?

“Realms” and “Servers” are different things, realms is a external world mojang keeps open 24/7 for a fee which isn’t available for PS4 until next update when we get 1.15 and 1.16 together. Servers is where people are just creating their own worlds and opening them up to others online but you can only access that world when the owner is online.

Hmmm… So, currently, if I download the server software, and set it up on a server , can PS4 players join that server?

You cannot because console manufacturers doesn’t let the game to connect to custom servers. BUT, you can connect to LAN servers. Therefore with a proxy software running in any PC in the LAN of your PS4 you can access remote servers.This is the proxy software: It is pretty easy to use too. I am running a server for ps4 players where we use the proxy.

Does This Mean That Minecraft Is Shutting Down Altogether
The short answer is no.
There were reports across the world that the end is nigh for Minecraft and that the rest of the game will soon be following Story Mode into the abyss.
As it turns out, these stories originated with prank website Channel45News. The tale then got picked up by a few legitimate news outlets who didnt realise it was bogus, instigating a brief panic across the Minecraft-verse.
However, Microsofts community manager took to Twitter on Thrsday 2 January to clear things up: Hey folks, I can confirm that Minecraft servers are NOT shutting down in 2020. Its just a stupid hoax. Feel free to pass this along.
‘minecraft: Java Edition’ Allows Cross
“Minecraft: Java Edition” is the original version of “Minecraft,” and while it’s not playable on consoles, it’s the only version available for Mac and Linux users.
“Java” users can play with other “Java” players, regardless of whether they’re running the game on a Windows, Linux, or Apple operating system.
Playing multiplayer with “Java” is a little more complicated than “Bedrock,” but not difficult once you’re familiarized. These are a few of your options:;
- You can use a public Minecraft server or create your own, and invite friends using an IP address
- You can pay for Minecraft Realms, where Mojang hosts multiplayer servers for you but it costs money.
- Or you can play together , or LAN, meaning you’ll have to be in the same place as the other players.;

What You Need To Know
- Minecraft: Bedrock Edition has Realms, or private servers that can be created for up to 10 players, allowing people to have massive maps.

- Now, after months of waiting from fans, Realms are finally available for Minecraft on Playstation.
- You can check out the new trailer, and access Realms on Playstation starting right now.
Minecraft, one of the Best Games on Playstation and Best Kids Games, has allowed cross-play between platforms like Playstation for ages through Minecraft: Bedrock Edition, and updates like the Nether Update have come to ever platform simultaneously as well. However, one thing that has been missing from the Playstation version of Minecraft, ever since it received the cross-play update, is Minecraft Realms, or private servers that players can rent for up to ten players at a time. Today, the wait is finally over for Minecraft players on Playstation.
Alongside a new trailer, Mojang Studios announced that Minecraft Realms, which recently completed its migration to Microsoft’s Azure platform, is officially coming to Playstation. This update will allow players on Playstation to create or join private servers with their friends from any Minecraft: Bedrock Edition platform, meaning you can participate in bigger, better worlds that don’t require the host to always be connected.
Minecraft Better Together Update
The Minecraft Better Together Update is a patch that was added to the game. To get it, you need to be running the latest version of Minecraft. This update was announced in 2017 so if youre running the latest version of the game on your console/computer/phone, you already have it.
If youre on the PlayStation, support for Cross-play was added in December 2019. Were well into 2020 now so you should already have it if the game is updated on your console.

How To Do Crossplay In ‘minecraft: Bedrock Edition’
To play cross-platform you simply need to add and invite your friends to your world. Here’s how:
After launching “Minecraft,” . You’ll see a button for this in the main menu if you’re not signed in already. Console players will also need an online subscription for their device, such as Xbox Live or Nintendo Switch Online.
You’ll be able to log into your Microsoft account from the main menu. Emma Witman/Insider
Friends added and available for multiplayer will appear under “Online Friends.” Check the box by their gamertag and click “Send 1 Invite.” When they accept, they’ll be loaded into your world.
Make sure to click the checkbox before sending the invite. Emma Witman/Insider
Note that some worlds in “Bedrock” can’t be played with users on other platforms. This is because each console has exclusive content that’s only available on that specific console.
For instance, on the Nintendo Switch, you can’t share the “Mario Mash-Up” world template with friends on other platforms. You can only share it with other Switch users.

Is Minecraft Likely To End Any Time Soon
Last May, Minecraft celebrated its 10th birthday and Microsoft took the opportunity to announce that the game had sold 176 million copies to date possibly making it the best-selling game of all time, beating out the last Grand Theft Auto by around 60 million copies.
At the same time, a new Minecraft game was also announced a Pokemon Go-esque augmented reality version called Minecraft Earth which will see players working together to build things out in the real world.
Minecraft also remains the most popular game on YouTube, with Minecraft-related content responsible for around 100 billion views on the video platform.
With a tireless community and a whole new way to play about to arrive, it would appear that reports of Minecrafts demise have been greatly, greatly exaggerated.

Minecraft On Ps4 Ps5 Finally Gets Two Missing Multiplayer Features
If youve bene playing Minecraft on the PlayStation 4 for a while now, youve been doing so without two key features that other platforms had access to. Those omissions have finally been resolved though now that both Realms and Servers have come to the PlayStation platforms which means youve got new ways to play with other players whether youre on the PlayStation 4 or are now playing on the PlayStation 5.
Mojang announced the release of the Realms and Servers this week with the video below shared to introduce the two multiplayer features. Though they both allow players to link up with friends and other random players, they function differently from one another.
Its official: Servers and Realms have come to PlayStation! Play online, create amazing co-op builds, or team up for an adventure:
When it comes to Servers, those function much like youd expect any other server to work in another game that supports multiplayer. Look for the Servers tab when youre in Minecraft and youll be able to choose from a number of different worlds created by players in the community where you and others can take part in all sorts of activities thatll differ depending on what Server youre in.
This gives you access to unique content created by your fellow Minecrafters, whom you can also play with! Mojang said about the features. Servers are full of competitive game modes, builds, and mini-games so creative that only our incredible community could have dreamed them up.
When Are Servers Coming To Minecraft Ps4
This answer is now defunct, as of December 10, 2019, PS4 is getting Bedrock Edition Minecraft, and everything that comes with it. Ive never been more happy to be wrong about a prediction, and Im glad Sony softened on their position on CrossPlay. I just wish it had happened sooner, and that it didnt take finding how arbitrary their splitting from shared multiplayer experiences was for Fortnite to get them to begin considering alternatives. My original answer remains below
Short term, there are no plans to do so. PS4 Minecraft is still console-specific, not Bedrock Edition.
Long-term, for Sony to allow Bedrock Edition on their platform, they would need to be willing to let players log into their Xbox Live accounts on their platform, make cross-platform purchases, and allow cross-platform multiplayer. All of those things are the stipulations for having Bedrock Edition on your platform.
Sonys attitude is that they are 100% unwilling to allow cross-platform because they consider their player ecosystem the best and dont want to dilute that. I wouldnt hold your breath for this position to change

How To Cross
Some arguments never die; Mac vs PC, iOS vs Android, and PC vs Console. With games, you will note that not all games release to all platforms. Some studios remain loyal to a particular console e.g. the PlayStation, while others prefer to release for more than one or all of them. Some games are available on all or almost all platforms. Case in point; Minecraft. Its easily one of the most widely distributed games; you can play it on a desktop, phone, and on consoles.
When you have a game thats available on so many platforms, and its a game that can be played online, on a hosted server, that multiple friends can be invited to, it makes you wonder if the game also supports cross-play.
