PS4 News Game News PS5 News

A new Playstation 4 system update is set to drop later today (October 7th) in North America and October 8th in Europe and Japan

This new update is said to effect the Playstation Trophies section, this will include an update on the Trophy Levels, Trophy Icons and more..

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

The icons will also have a subtle distinction to visually suggest how close you are to the next level.

Lastly, just for clarity, Trophies that you’ve earned on previous PlayStation systems will come with you to PlayStation 5, just as they have in previous generation transitions. The new Trophy levels will be reflected in all locations that Trophy levels are shown, including past systems, PS App and My PlayStation.

All of these updates will be automatically implemented on the system side, starting later tonight (North America) / tomorrow (Europe). 

We’re committed to offering an even better experience for our fans as we head into the next generation of gaming. We can’t wait for everyone to start racking up trophies in all the amazing upcoming games that are launching on PS4 and PS5!


Also, according to Playstation France this said update will also include a new feature of being able to track your current trophy progression too.

Their statement read the following;

Track Your Progress on PlayStation 5

On PlayStation 5, you’ll be able to track your progress towards earning individual trophies for compatible PlayStation 5 games. For example, sometimes you’ll see how many artifacts you have left to collect, or how many armor upgrades you need to get before unlocking the Trophy.

However, having said that this same post regarding the Trophy Tracking has now since been deleted. It was thanks to the team at Gematsu that this message is still around and that we where able to find it!

What does this mean exactly though? Does this mean that this Trophy Tracking feature is no longer going to happen any more? We for one would be disappointed if that is the case, as this seemed like a great feature to have for trophy hunters and collectors and if I’m not mistaken it is also a feature that a lot of XBox users currently enjoy having. Who knows, only time will tell..
