This is good news for everyone who was expecting that PlayStation Plus classic titles will have Trophy support.
One of the PlayStation Plus titles, Syphon Filter, is getting Trophies! Sony’s Bend Studio tweeted about it on Thursday. There will be Trophies to acquire for anybody who plays the game on PS5 or PS4 regardless of whether it was originally developed for the PlayStation.
Bend Studio (previously known as Eidetic) produced Syphon Filter in 1999, a third-person espionage shooter. The game was so well received that it inspired a series, with a total of five further games. Days Gone was then created by Bend Studio.
It’s interesting to note that Syphon Filter isn’t one of the restored vintage games that have gained increased resolution and framerates. New menus will also be included in several of the games, making navigating and saving simpler.
While only Syphon Filter has been officially confirmed to have Trophy support so far, it’s quite doubtful that it’s the only classic game to do so. If you keep your expectations in check, you won’t be disappointed by the lack of Trophies for many vintage games. A PlayStation games preservation team has just been established by Sony, however this team is now concentrating primarily on the preservation of games for the “commercial side.”
As a result of the relaunch, PlayStation Plus now offers three tiers: Essential, Extra, and Premium. PlayStation Now’s Essential and Extra tiers continue to work in the same manner as they have in the past, although the Extra tier includes a larger selection of PS4 and PS5 titles, many of which were developed by the PlayStation Studios. Classic games, Cloud gaming, and game trials are all included in the Premium tier.
PlayStation Plus’s redesigned service is scheduled to launch in June 2022, with localised release dates. On June 13, 2022, it will commence in the United States.
