Before going into the details of the procedure on how to play for two on Minecraft PS4 , I think you may be interested to know more about how this possibility is managed from the title of Mojang.

Well, you need to know that the PS4 edition of Minecraft allows you to play with your friend in two ways: locally or online . In the first case, an HDMI connection to the TV is clearly required . The view will be divided in two and you will play in a split screen: above the screen of the “master of the house”, while below there will be that of the guest.

As for the possibility of playing in two online, you need to know that you need a PSN account with an active PlayStation Plus subscription . Essentially, both you and your friend must have a PS4 enabled to play online. For more details on how to configure the console, I invite you to consult my guides on how to access PlayStation Network and how to have PlayStation Plus for free (via initial free trial).

For the rest, Minecraft for PS4 allows you to invite your friend into your game, so that he can help with activities related to that world. In any case, whether it’s a local co-op or an online co-op , there is no shortage of activities to have fun for two. Below, therefore, you will find all the details of the case to be able to play with your friend in the title of Mojang.

The split screen mode or that a split screen , allows up to four users to play Minecraft in local, sitting next to each other.

To activate this mode in the PlayStation 4 version of Minecraft, simply start the game (by selecting the relevant box from the main console screen) and connect a secondary controller . You will be asked to log in to a second local account . If you don’t have the latter, I invite you to consult my tutorial on how to create a secondary account on PS4 .

Once you have connected the second pad correctly and started a game on Minecraft , all you have to do is press the X button first and then the Options button . This way, split screen mode will be activated and you should see two “windows”. At the top there will be your view and at the bottom the one reserved for your friend.

Perfect, you are now ready to play in pairs locally on Minecraft for PS4.

Obviously, the edition of Minecraft for PlayStation 4 also allows you to configure online co-op games and even in this case the procedure to follow is very simple.

Excellent, now you just have to select the friend you want to invite to play with you and wait for the latter to accept. Obviously, the game involved must have the multiplayer enabled and you must have provided the guest with at least the Subscriber level permissions , so that it can, for example, break blocks and attack creatures.

These options can be changed via the Multiplayer tab . It can be done when the world is created or by going to the path Play> Worlds and pressing on the pencil icon , in order to modify an existing one.

How do you say? Were you able to set up the two-person game on Minecraft for PlayStation 4, but don’t know what tasks to do? No problem, I’ll explain right away what can be done in the co-op mode of the Mojang title.

Well, the first thing you need to keep in mind is the fact that two people can build structures much faster , since obviously there are more people. This means that you may want to consider more complex creations than usual , which alone would take a long time to make.

For example, if you want some advice, you could follow my tutorial on how to make an experience farm on Minecraft , how to make a fishing farm on Minecraft , how to make a boat on Minecraft and how to make a bridge on Minecraft . These are just a few examples, but clearly you can build countless structures within the Mojang title. If you want to learn more about other creations , I suggest you take a look at the page of my site dedicated to Minecraft , where you can find countless guides dedicated to the game.

For the rest, you might think of going on an adventure and completing particularly difficult challenges. For example, you could take a look at my guide on how to finish Minecraft . Finally, other things I recommend are the creation of a “village” , where you and your friend have separate houses , and the exploration of the underground “caves” , which can always guarantee some surprises. By the way, you might be interested in following my tutorial on how to open the chat on Minecraft PS4 : this type of communication could be useful.

In any case, of course, the limit is your creativity ! I just have to wish you a lot of fun!
