PlayStation Trophies Update Is Live, Here’s Everything That’s Changed
The folks over at Sony appear to be doing some spring cleaning ahead of the release of the PlayStation 5. With just a month away from the console’s arrival, Sony has a released a sizable PlayStation Trophies update that completely restructures trophy levels, alters the various Trophies icons, and more.
Sony took to its PlayStation blog website to outline the changes to its PlayStation Trophies system, which are now live. Trophy levels are getting significantly larger, with the current level range jumping from “1-100” to “1-999,” with the update automatically remapping player trophy levels depending on their current level. Sony’s example transposes a level 12 trophy level to somewhere in the low 200’s.
Given the significant level range differences, increasing one’s trophy level will be easier and more rewarding. Bronze trophies will of course have the least amount of impact on one’s level, while the more prestigious Platinum trophies will count the most towards one’s progression.
As mentioned, the PlayStation Trophies icons have undergone a significant change, with the new icons shown above. Each type of trophy Bronze through Gold has three different icons depending on how far along in levels the user is, with Platinum displaying one simple and clean icon that jives thematically with the PS5. Sony ended its post by reaffirming that trophies accumulated on previous PlayStation consoles will be brought with the player over to the PlayStation 5, just as they always have on previous generation transitions.
