To put it in a nutshell, Minecraft is a game where you dig and build huts for protecting yourself from attacks by zombies.
However, there is an immense depth to the game. It was initially released some 8 years ago for the desktop and later made its debut on the consoles, the Xbox 360 and the PS3.
The PS4 Edition
The PS4 edition offers an immersive experience for exploring and creating. The aesthetics are sharper and the performance is better, making it the best version on consoles. Minecraft is one of the best games that you can own on the PlayStation 4 with enormous maps, making it much bigger and better than the other console versions.
You have a map and your imagination for crafting your world in the game. The player has to first knock down some wood from a nearby tree to begin construction. He also has a pickaxe to find coal and ores and an axe for gathering lumber. You can then upgrade to get stone tools and then iron for constructing better tools. You can craft a sword for protecting yourself from dangerous monsters that come during the night, zombies or a creeper in a mineshaft.
The player can get an immense sense of satisfaction while constructing in the game. You must start by constructing a simple shack created with the use of wood, dirt, etc. However, later on, you can build a cabin with several rooms. Apart from building a cabin, you can walk in the jungle and create a tree house. You can also dig around for precious materials to build an underground house. All these projects are based on your own imagination and vision; so it offers a great sense of accomplishment when you complete a structure.
Minecraft PS4 is not about only constructing a home or going into caves, but also exploring and interacting with the surrounding world. You can find ancient temples in the desert and find treasure chests. You can also find a town with villagers who offer good options for trading. You could also take their books and dig their crops, till land for producing wheat; carrots and potatoes. The sandbox game is full of activities that suit any mood, such as scavenging an abandoned mine or watching the sun set from your home.
The surroundings are made of blocks, comprising the dirt on the ground to different trees seen in the landscape. All the animals and monsters that you see and even the clouds have bright colors and are created with sharp angles. You can view snow-capped mountains along with arid deserts in a divergent biome. Dark oak trees will be found side by side with bright green jungles and a burst of flora. Rivers are polygonal pieces that slice through the land. The entire effect is overwhelming, but you get a lot of guidance in the game.
