Available now in Europe, with North America and Japan getting it later today (Update: It’s out now in North America), Minecraft update 1.20 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita adds support for the new Doctor Who Skin Pack, while also fixing a couple of issues, including a memory leak that caused frame-rate problems.

Here’s the full list of patch notes for today’s update, which apply to all platforms unless otherwise noted:

Additions

  • Added Doctor Who Skin Pack Bundle trial content.

Fixes

  • Fixed a memory leak causing frame-rate issues.
  • Fixed an issue causing signs to go blank for network players.
  • Updated trophies to include all those already on other platforms. 23 added in total. (PS3 only)

Discussing the future of big Minecraft updates on consoles, developer 4J Studios said earlier this month:

No news yet, other than we’re working on it. The next few updates will be small, while we get the 1.8 update ready.

If you’re looking to purchase the Doctor Who Bundle, it’s available through the PlayStation Store for $5.99 (PS4, PS3, PS Vita).

Here’s the description:

Launch yourself on an epic adventure in space and time with this bundle of Minecraft Doctor Who Skins Volume I and Volume II. With the combination of these two skin packs you will have over 100 characters from all eras of the show’s history including all the Doctors, Amy Pond, Clara Oswald, Rose Tyler, Zygons, The Master, Weeping Angels, the Daleks, Davros, Donna Noble, Captain Jack Harkness, K9, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, the Sea Devil and the Cybermen.

As Telltale Games and Mojang announced recently, Minecraft: Story Mode is coming to PS4 and PS3 this October through digital and retail stores.
