In 2017, Sony Interactive Entertainment Australia launched PlayStation Plus Platinum Hunters, a program that would challenge gamers across their supported regions to unlock the in-game Platinum Trophy in select titles as quickly as possible. Those who were victorious would obtain a real-life limited-edition replica Platinum Trophies to mark their accomplishment
The inaugural year of this program saw players strive to be the quickest to complete FIFA 18, Gran Turismo Sport, Call of Duty: WWII and Star Wars Battlefront II. It has been resurrected a couple of times since then, for the ANZ launch of Monster Hunter World and Far Cry 5. If you have missed your chance to claim victory, Sony Interactive Entertainment have today confirmed that five additional opportunities to claim one of these trophies are imminent.
The competition will kick off tomorrow with the launch of EA Sports FIFA 19. A winner managed to nab the trophy for FIFA 18 in just four days.
Sports not your thing? Additional opportunities will be offered for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (12 October), Fallout 76 (14 November), Battlefield V (20 November) and Anthem (22 February).
To win, players must collect all in-game trophies and unlock the Platinum Trophy for a title specified above. Once players achieve all in-game accomplishments and receive the Platinum Digital Trophy, they must snap a screenshot using the SHARE button and upload it across Facebook or Twitter tagging @PlayStationAU and using the hashtag #PlusPlatinumHunters.

As someone who does not have the time or resources to Platinum games as I did in the past, this is not a campaign that would convince me to do so again. But for those competitive trophy hunters out there, this is a nice little way to reward the quick and talented with a nice physical trinket.
