In a slightly better state of the world than last time, Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that Days of Play is back in 2021, to once again “celebrate the passionate PlayStation community around the globe”. Commencing from 18 May 2021, the celebration will run for several weeks, and will feature a range of activities to see more players come together for entertaining experiences, and a sale.
The big and new addition to this year’s Days of Play is the ‘Player Celebration’. This special event will see the community come together to achieve a shared set of goals. The first round will commence on 18 May with pre-registrations open now, with PSN Avatars and PS4 themes waiting to be claimed.
Some of the goals include: ‘Play Games’ where the community must play a target number of games (for at least an hour) each week, ‘Earn Trophies’ where the community must earn a target number of trophies each week and additional bonus goals to keep the fun going.
In addition to the Player Celebration, Sony Interactive Entertainment are also planning for a ‘Celebration Sale’ on the PlayStation Store later this month, featuring a variety of PS4 and PS5 games. There will also be a free online multiplayer weekend, enabling anyone, regardless of PS Plus status, to access the online modes in PS4 and PS5 games.
