Originally introduced during the PS3, PlayStation Trophies have now become part and parcel of every game released, and is super important for gamers who want to “complete” a game 100 percent. If you’re confused as to how Trophies are calculated, Sony has your back, as the company has announced a slew of PlayStation Trophy changes coming tonight!
Expect changes to Trophy levels, how it’s calculated and more! Head on below for the official info.
PlayStation Trophy Changes:
New Trophy Levels
The first thing you’ll notice is the big change to your Trophy level. We’re increasing the Trophy level range from the current “1-100” to “1-999,” so following this update, your Trophy level will automatically be remapped to a new level within this new range based on the Trophies you’ve earned to date. For example, 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.
New Level Calculation Structure
We’ve implemented a new Trophies level calculation system that is more optimized and rewarding. Players will progress quicker through the early levels, and levels will increase more consistently. Platinum trophies will count more toward your level progression, making them even more valuable.
New Trophy Level Icons
With an expanded level range, we’re also updating the trophy level icon on PlayStation 5, as well as PlayStation App at a later date. Currently the Trophies icon is just a single gold star, but we’re adding a few variants:
- Bronze: levels 1-299
- Silver: levels 300 – 599
- Gold: levels 600 – 998
- Platinum: level 999
According to Sony, these PlayStation Trophy changes are coming later tonight for US peeps/tomorrow for EU. Also, the companyhas confirmed that any Trophy you earned during the PS3/PS4 will carry over to the PS5 as expected.
