Update (January 17): The bug fix update is now available on PlayStation Vita as well.

Original Story: Following the releases of 1.38 and 1.39 late last month, Minecraft update 1.40 is now available to download on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in North America and Europe, developer 4J Studios announced today.

As the patch notes show, this is just a small bug fix update:

  • Fix for Mob Spawners not spawning anymore, and showing a Pig inside them.
  • Fix for previously created signs being censored for players with restrictive Privacy settings.
  • Fix for being able to escape the boundaries of the world by exiting a Boat at the edge.

The update is also available on Xbox One and Xbox 360.

4J Studios adds, “We are continuing to work on bug fixes for all Minecraft console editions. Please report any bugs you’ve found here.”

During the Nintendo event last night, Minecraft was announced for Nintendo Switch.

In 2016, Minecraft was the #3 best-selling PS4 game in North America through the PlayStation Store. It also took home #1 on PS3 and #2 on PS Vita in North America.
