Making them even more special.

PlayStation 5 trophies will offer new rewards to players when unlocked, as subtly revealed during the UI's reveal last week.

According to longtime industry insider @Tidux on Twitter, players can unlock items through earning a game's trophies.

That suggests that by completing the Bronze "Rookie" trophy in Destruction All-Stars, you'd unlock an in-game Profile Banner, while the "Wreckognised" gold trophy will offer a Profile Avatar.

It's a neat addition, and while there have undoubtedly been unlockables intertwined with trophies in the past, it's nice to see these at a system level.

Paired with the ability to track your progress for each trophy, it could be a really interesting way to have players earn bragging rights.

As Tidux themselves noted, it's similar to Ubisoft's Uplay Rewards that unlock bonus content like gear in Division 2 or armour in Assassin's Creed.

It'll be interesting to see if unlockables stretch beyond cosmetic additions, giving the most dedicated players something to chase.
