As if Minecraft hasn’t already dominated our computer screens and gaming consoles, the Mojang-developed construction title will be releasing to one more console today, one day ahead of the upcoming Xbox One Edition of the game releasing tomorrow.

Over on the PlayStation Blog, it was revealed in a blog post that Minecraft: PS4 Edition will be releasing today before 12pm Pacific (3pm Eastern), with the game retailing on PSN for $19.99. In addition to the release news and specs, with the game adding larger worlds that are “36 times bigger than the ones” from releases on previous generation consoles and save game imports, the blog post also broke down various upgrade options for players with the PS3 Edition of the game.

Users with Minecraft: PS3 Edition can upgrade to the PS4 Edition for a small fee, with users that already own either the digital or retail versions of the game able to make the upgrade for $4.99.

In addition to the news of the PS4 Edition, the comments section of the post also featured a comment that “Mojang and 4J are working hard” on the PS Vita version of the game, and that the team will hope to have updates on it soon. The Vita version will also be Cross-Buy enabled with the PS3 Edition of the game, allowing users to download both the PS3 and Vita versions.

Minecraft is now available on PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS, with new releases coming soon for Xbox One and PS Vita.
