Minecraft is an excellent game to play by yourself, but it’s even more fun to play with friends. Getting set up to play with friends, though, can be confusing. Fear not, we’ve got you covered. Here’s how to invite & play with friends in Minecraft on PS4.
Inviting & Playing With Friends in Minecraft PS4
To do so, you’re going to need to first ensure you’re connected online and then you’re going to need to make sure that not only do you have PS Plus, but that the friends you want to play with do as well.
Once you’ve checked all of those boxes, launch the game. At the main menu, select Multiplayer. After that, you should see a few options to select: LAN, Online Server, Minecraft Realms, and Splitscreen. For the purposes of this guide, you should select either Splitscreen or online server.
Splitscreen in Minecraft PS4
If you select Splitscreen, the game will launch and it will allow you and a friend to play the game on the same screen. It’s your standard split screen experience.
Online Servers in Minecraft PS4
To play with friends online, you’ll need to select Online Server. This will launch you into a biome that serves as a server which means that any of your friends can jump into the world as long as the server is online i.e. you are online in the game.
Once you’re in the game, press the touchpad button in the middle of your PS4 controller. After that, you can press Triangle to view invites you’re received. If a friend has invited you to their server, an invite from them is how you’ll get into their world.
After pressing the touchpad button, you can press square to Invite friends. This will pull up a list of friends and from there, you can select the person you wish to send an invite to.
They’ll have to accept the invite and assuming everything works on the online side of things, they’ll soon be loaded into your game world.
