The Trophy-earning experience is about to get more rewarding than ever, as PS5 owners will now receive prizes for their accomplishments.
PlayStation fans have long-awaited a reason to seek Trophies in-game. Yes, the accomplishment of seeing a rare Trophy on your profile is reward enough, but it feels like something is missing.
Now, PS5 owners will actually be given prizes for the efforts in-game. During the recent PlayStation UI reveal, fans got our first look at the new reward system in action.
PS4 Trophy Rewards
Although it's worth getting excited about this new feature, some gamers are quick to point out that the system has seen some use in the past. Indeed, the PS4 has a range of games that reward players for achieving a Platinum Trophy.
In the U.S. and Canada (excluding Quebec), gamers can already earn a range of rewards for games. However, these accomplishments are restricted to 100% game completions.
The full list of offerings are as follows:
- Bloodborne Platinum Trophy Theme
- Call of Duty: WWII Platinum Trophy Theme
- Horizon Zero Dawn Platinum Trophy Theme and Avatar
- The Last Guardian Platinum Trophy Theme
- PaRappa The Rapper Platinum Trophy Avatar Set
- God of War Platinum Trophy Character Avatar Set*
- Spider-Man Platinum Trophy Avatar
- Days Gone End of Game Trophy Avatar
- Days Gone Platinum Trophy Theme
It's a very specific bunch of games, but at least players see rewards for their hard work. Some of these titles have tons of secrets and collectibles to discover before earning the Platinum Trophy.
It should be pointed out that many players who would qualify for these rewards claim to have never received them. Hopefully, this issue will be fixed with the PS5 Trophy rewards.
PS5 Trophy Rewards
PlayStation insider Tidux on Twitter recently shared their findings on the new Trophy system. In a series of tweets, the user points out that the PS5's new activity cards can actually reward players for their Trophy-earning.
As we see from the upcoming title Destruction AllStars, players can get their hands on a profile banner and avatar. This is only the beginning, though, as the user predicts a Uplay-style reward system where players earn points and redeem them in games.
What's more, now PS Plus members can see easy guides directly from their console to help them achieve these Trophies. Given the convenience of this new feature, it's about to get easier than ever to earn rewards in-game.
What's interesting is that we've still not yet seen much gameplay of major titles coming out. In fact, Destruction AllStars is a PS5 launch title with no gameplay reveal.
The only game we've seen a decent look at appears to be the upcoming Spider-Man sequel. In new Spider-Man Miles Morales 4K footage, we can even see a peek at the game's first boss.
