Some PlayStation classics coming to the new PS Plus are adding trophy support
Including Bend Studio’s Syphon Filter
Some of the classic games being made available as part of the new PlayStation Plus subscription service will include trophy support.
The news was confirmed by one of Sony Interactive Entertainment’s first-party developers, Bend Studio, which said on Thursday that it will be adding trophies for Syphon Filter.
“Agency intel reports that Syphon Filter will include Trophies when it arrives on the all-new PlayStation Plus,” it wrote.
“And yes, you can earn the Platinum too.”
The PlayStation rewards system, which lets players earn trophies by accomplishing objectives such as clearing levels, finding collectables, or completing certain tasks, was introduced by Sony in 2008.
This means that many of the classic games being released as part of the new PlayStation Plus service won’t include support, and presumably it’s up to developers if this is something they want to add.
Sony recently confirmed a partial list of games that will be made available as part of the revamped PlayStation Plus service, which is due to launch in Asia next week and the rest of the world in June.
Introducing the all-new PlayStation Plus | PS5 & PS4 Games
The PS Plus Extra and Premium tiers will offer a library of PS4 and PS5 games that will include Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Demon’s Souls, Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut, NBA 2K22 and more.
Some of the PSOne and PSP games coming to the Premium tier include first-party titles Ape Escape, Hot Shots Golf and Syphon Filter, and third-party games like Mr. Driller and Tekken 2.
Select PSOne and PSP games will sport a new user interface with menus that allow players to save their game at any time, or rewind gameplay.
Players who have previously purchased the digital version of games from the PSOne and PSP generations will not have to make a separate purchase or sign up to PlayStation Plus to play these titles on PS4 or PS5, Sony said.
Additionally, some remastered classics from previous console generations will be added to the Premium plan, such as Siren and Jak 2.
Syphon Filter, Syphon Filter 2, Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror and Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow were recently rated for PS4 and PS5 in Korea, suggesting they’ll all be made available via PlayStation Plus at some point.
