PlayStation 5 Trophies Will Have New Look and More Levels

Sony is currently rebuilding the PlayStation Trophy system in time for the release of the PlayStation 5, greatly expanding the Trophy levels.

PlayStation Trophy levels are scheduled to undergo a massive increase as Sony is reconstructing the system in preparation for the release of the PlayStation 5 in November. The Trophy System’s update is just one of numerous critical adjustments that the company is implementing to the console’s ecosystem in preparation for the launch of the next-gen console. This includes a premium addition to the PlayStation Plus subscription that allows players to access 18 top-tier PlayStation 4 games.

The PlayStation Trophy system was Sony’s reply to the triumphant achievements from the Xbox360. The system was first revealed in 2008, three years after Xbox’s Achievements were first introduced. While the Trophies were not as famous as their counterpart, they have become successful over time and have been more relevant today compared to others.

Sony has revealed that they are going to revamp the Trophies system when the PlayStation 5 releases next month. The update will significantly change the way Trophy levels will be calculated. As of writing, players can reach levels ranging from 1 to 100.

However, this will change soon so that the range will be expanded between 1 to 999, with levels of players being remapped automatically. There will also be 10 new badges to be released alongside the additional levels which Sony states that progressing through the levels will be more satisfying and rewarding. Past Trophies achieved from the PlayStation 3 and 4 will also be carried over into the upcoming system as well.

It has been a busy month for Sony so far. Not only has the company revealed improvements to the PlayStation Trophy system but it also published a comprehensive teardown video of the PlayStation 5 on their official YouTube channel.

The detailed video gave fans and critics a glance at the internal components of the next-gen console and show how easily it can be dismantled. However, the video still gained criticism about the complicated method in which the PlayStation 5’s stand has to be detached, something that Xbox was quick to make fun of via a post on Twitter.

The fact that Sony waited this long to upgrade the PlayStation Trophies makes a lot of sense. After all, doing a considerable change along with the release of the next-gen console aids in establishing a new era for the platform.

It is also not that shocking that Sony is reconstructing the Trophy system considering that it has barely changed since it was released in 2008. Hopefully, the improvements will mean gaining Trophies becomes a more memorable experience and simpler to track.
