Calling all Minecraft fans with a PS5!

The wait for a native PS5 version is almost over, but you can now jump into an early preview.

Here's what you need to know.

How to Play the Early Version And What's in the Preview?

Owning the PS4 version grants you access to this sneak peek.

Just fire up Minecraft on your PS5, head to settings, and choose "preview." It's that easy!

This preview includes the latest Tricky Trials Update content. But there are some things to keep in mind.

You won't be able to play online with friends on other consoles (yet!), and the in-game store is off-limits for now.

The good news? If you have a Realms subscription (a paid online service), you can still create a special "preview realm" to play with friends on different devices.

This is an early build, so expect a few bumps along the road.

Mojang, the developers, are counting on individuals to test things out and report any bugs they find.

You can do this through their official Discord server or a form on the Minecraft website.

When Will the Full Version Be Released?

There's no official date yet, but the preview is a good sign that the full PS5 version is nearing completion.

If you don't already own Minecraft, you can grab it now – there's a standard version and a deluxe edition with bonus maps, character customizations, and in-game currency.

Get ready for some stunning visuals! The PS5 version boasts crisp 4K resolution, improved viewing distances, and smoother graphics.

While there's no news yet on ray tracing (a fancy lighting effect teased for Xbox a while back), the PS5 version is still a major upgrade.

If you have Minecraft for PS4, pop over to Settings and then Preview to access the PS5 version.

For now, online play is limited to PS4 and PS5 users, but you can still team up with friends on other devices through Realms.

A Minecraft Legacy

Minecraft remains the king of video games, having sold a mind-blowing 300 million copies since early 2009!

Even after 15 years, there's no talk of a sequel. Why? Because with over 120 million monthly players, Minecraft's magic is undeniable.

The PS5 version of Minecraft is shaping up nicely, offering a visual and gameplay boost to this beloved title.

PS4 owners can jump into the early preview to experience the new content and help Mojang polish things up for the full release. Stay tuned for more updates, and get ready to experience Minecraft in a whole new way on your PS5!
