As of the most recent update on PS4 (my apologies for not knowing the exact version number), my monster spawn rate has increased astronomically compared to previous versions. Along with this, monsters are continuing to spawn at high rates in fully lit areas. Does anyone know what happened?
Bedrock Edition 1.17.10 – Official Minecraft Wiki (fandom.com) you can see the changes in the standard bedrock for ps4. there are further updates for the xbox but i don't know if they are for ps4. i think though on the ps4 you can chose caves and cliffs to modify the game. you can get infor on the mobs on my link clicking on the game.
