Sony have announced that they’re making a significant change to the leveling system that goes hand-in-hand with Trophies earned on PlayStation games.
As announced via an update on the PlayStation blog, the biggest change is being made to the range of Trophy levels for a profile, which is being increased significantly. While earlier the range was for levels 1-100, it will now be for levels 1-999.
Along with that also comes a new system for calculating Trophy levels, which will now see your profile leveling up much more quickly. Each profile on the PS5 (and eventually on the PlayStation App) will also have Trophy level icons, which will vary based on these ranges:
- Bronze: levels 1-299
- Silver: levels 300 – 599
- Gold: levels 600 – 998
- Platinum: level 999
Sony also states that these icons will have “a subtle distinction to visually suggest how close you are to the next level.”
Finally, as soon as this update kicks in, your Trophy level will be automatically remapped to fall within this new system, and will be calculated by how many Trophies you’ve earned.
The update will go live later today.
