The Twitter/X user also shared a screenshot of the graphics settings in the PS5 version of Minecraft. The new version doesn’t support ray tracing, though it does offer the option to run the game at higher graphical settings and with improved render distance and anti aliasing. The options to run the game at a native resolution of 4K as well as to set the frame rate cap limit are also available in the PS5 preview build.

Prior hints had already suggested that a PS5 version of Minecraft was on its way. Title IDs for a native version of the game were recently published on the PlayStation Network back-end. When the PS5 launched in 2020, Minecraft didn’t have a native version due to Microsoft not receiving a development kit from Sony. Instead, an Xbox Series X|S port was released, while PS5 users played the PS4 version via backwards compatibility.

As of writing, Minecraft is officially available on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.
