PlayStation Trophy System Will Be Updated on PS4 & PS5, Sony Confirms
Sony makes changes to the PlayStation Trophy System. The levels will be structured more finely in the future, which is done by increasing from “1-100” to “1-999.” New symbols are also part of the game.
Sony is making changes to the PlayStation Trophy System that was once introduced with the PS3 in a matter of hours. The company will increase the trophy level range – from currently “1-100” to “1-999”.
After the update, your trophy level will automatically be assigned to a new level within the new area based on the trophies you’ve earned so far.
“if your current Trophy level is 12, your new level will jump to somewhere in the low 200’s. The exact level will depend on the number and grades of trophies you’ve acquired. There will be no changes to the Trophies already earned or Trophy information, such as unlock requirements,” Sony said on the official PlayStation Blog.
The company promises a “new Trophies level calculation system that is more optimized and rewarding.” The advantage is that players can move faster through the lower levels and steady progress is achieved. “Platinum trophies will count more toward your level progression, making them even more valuable,” it says in addition.
Along with the expanded level range, the icon for the trophy levels on the PlayStation 5 will be updated. In the PlayStation app, the whole thing follows a little later. At the moment the trophy symbol is only a star, but other variants are being added. These are the following levels:
- Bronze: Levels 1-299
- Silver: Levels 300-599
- Gold: Levels 600-998
- Platinum: Level 999
The trophies that you earned on previous PlayStation systems will, according to Sony, be carried over to the PlayStation 5, just like when switching from previous generations. Ultimately, the new trophy levels will be displayed in all areas where the previous trophy levels are visible, including the older consoles, in the PS app, and under My PlayStation.
The updates mentioned are automatically adopted on the system page.
