I have a seed I really like and I used an Ender eye to find the closest stronghold but it did NOT contain an end portal. I don't want to keep investing in this world if there is no working end portal somewhere.

Can there be more than one stronghold per world on PS4 Minecraft?

  • I believe I found the answer. The rest of the stronghold can be hidden.

  • It is important to note that in Legacy Console Editions, Eyes of Ender do not necessarily lead to and End Portal, only to the nearest Stronghold. minecraft.gamepedia.com/Eye_of_Ender#Usage

There are 3 strongholds per world in Minecraft Console Edition.

Note that one of the End Portal Blocks already has an eye of ender in it. There is a limit of 128 strongholds per world (3 per world in Console Edition).



You will always have an end portal in every world you make. Either you haven't explorered the stronghold enough, (which I don't think is the case) Or you have another Stronghold in your map. Heck, you might have one anyways. I found several strongholds in one world when I used to play on the PC, so I believe that's the case.
