Original Story – Sony has announced on the PlayStation Blog that Days of Play will return once again for 2021, offering a suite of rewards for players to obtain.
A Days of Play celebration sale will take place on the PlayStation Store later this month, alongside a free online multiplayer weekend for PlayStation Plus.
PlayStation’s Player Celebration brings the community together to achieve shared goals in return for exclusive PSN avatars and PS4 themes. Registration opens today and will stay open until May 31, with Stage 1 of the event kicking off on May 18. You can sign up here. The event will end on June 7, 2021.
The three community goals this time around are as follows:
- Games Goal: The community must play a target number of games each week. Every PS5/PS4 game an entrant plays for at least an hour will count towards the Games Goal (cumulative or in one sitting). Double points can be earned if you play a game with a friend on your friends list.
- Trophies Goal: The community must earn a target number of Trophies each week. Each entrant can have a maximum of six PS4/PS5 trophies count towards the trophies goal.
- Bonus Goal: If the first set of goals are reached before the end of each stage, there will be a new set of bonus goals the community can work towards.
If all goals are met for all three stages of the event, participants will receive a cumulative prize with an exclusive avatar and PS4 theme set. These rewards will be delivered directly to your PS4 or PS5 1-2 days after each stage ends. The full list of requirements can be found on the PlayStation Blog and you can see the rewards below:
