PlayStation 4 players get the R10 update today!

PlayStation 4 players! Can you pause that wonderful Spider-Man game for a few minutes so I can tell you about the R10 update you’re getting today? Wait, can I pause Spider-Man long enough to write this entire post? I guess we’ll find out together.

Update Minecraft on your PlayStation 4 today, and you’ll get some great new features! And if you’ve already read my previous article about R10 in March, you’re about to get some great new deja vu! Take it away, past-me:

We’re firing a new weapon into Minecraft – the crossbow! It comes with three new enchantments too, yet the crossbow isn’t the true star of this new update. That’ll be the lantern, which is sure to light up your life! We’ve also added the loom and the lectern, items that will no doubt loom up your life and lectern up your life, respectively. Give them a try!

Look at me rambling about book holders and medieval weaponry when I should be talking about the real star of the R10 update – Jellie, the cat YOU voted to be added to Minecraft! Jellie, stand up and take a bow!

No, wait, I know the actual star of this update – shields! You’re just one iron ingot and six wooden planks away from being able to defend yourself against all sorts of hostile mobs (and other players, too).

Shields will also help defend you from the new hostile mob, Pillagers (are they the true stars of this update? No way, they’re JERKS). Defence won’t actually be necessary just yet, because Pillagers are only coming to Creative Mode in this update. But what about in a later update? Let’s just say you might want to start practising crafting and using that shield now…

This update will be rolling out on PlayStation 4 today, so keep an eye out for it. Want to chat with us about the update? Join us, the true stars of the R10 update, on the official Minecraft Discord at discord.gg/Minecraft.

And that’s it! I’m off to swing back into Spider-Man for another hundred hours. Honestly, Insomniac Games, thanks to you, it’s amazing this website ever gets updated at all...
