Jaime Limon Senior Product Marketing Manager for Minecraft has taken to the official PlayStation blog this week to reveal more details about the launch of the new Minecraft Battle Minigame that will be launching on the PlayStation 4 in June 2016
Minecraft Battle allows you to set up a competitive multiplayer fight for survival, during which speed, strategy and a little luck can help you gain a victory. Minecraft Battle Minigame is free for all owners of Minecraft on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita, Battle rolls out in June 2016 and will be available via a game update.
Team Minecraft at Mojang, 4J Studios and Microsoft have been working on some cool free content for Minecraft: Console Edition — and we’re really excited to introduce minigames to you today.
Players in Battle matches use randomly generated resources from chests located in specially-designed PVP maps to combat one another in a free-for-all deathmatch until the final victor is determined. But the fun doesn’t end after defeat; fallen players can spectate the combat among remaining players in the match by flying freely around each arena as a bat.
Of course, coming up with improvised rules and new ways to play with friends are already popular activities among Minecraft: Console Edition players (and long may it continue)! But our new minigames help you quickly and easily jump into competitions with tailor-made rulesets. You can have fun straightaway without having to fuss around with manual countdowns, laborious loot chest prep or keeping score.
Sound good? Great – you won’t have to wait very long for this to come out, so get your enchanted fishing poles ready. The first minigame, Battle, hits PlayStation Store next month.
