Sony is changing the way it calculates PlayStation 4 trophy levels. On the PlayStation Blog, it announced a new calculation rollout, which will change people’s overall ranks on October 7, 2020. As a result, the new level cap is changing from 100 to 999.
Prior to this, Sony’s official site had a breakdown for how many points each sort of trophy would be worth and details on the point totals for each PS4 trophy level rank. So, for example, a Bronze would be 15 points or Platinum 180. To reach the second trophy level, you would need 200 points, the third would be at 600, and so on.
With the new system, the tier requirements for each level will change. Since the calculations will be different, there will be Bronze trophy levels between levels 1-299, Silver between 300-599, and Gold between 600-998. The highest level, 999, will be the new Platinum rank.
Sony didn’t note how many points trophies might be worth now or how many points will be needed for each new PS4 trophy level. However, it did note that this change will also be represented in the PlayStation App and on the PlayStation 5. There will be icons on both that change from a gold star to Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum icons.
The PlayStation 4 trophy level changes will appear in North America on October 7, 2020 and in Europe on October 8, 2020.
