PlayStation’s Days of Play Begins Next Week with Prizes to be Won, Free Multiplayer Weekend Coming Soon

PlayStation’s Days of Play promotion will be returning this year. Beginning next week, players will be able to take part in a community event to win PSN avatars and PS4 dynamic themes. There will also be another Days of Play sale for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, as well as a free multiplayer weekend that won’t require PlayStation Plus.

The PlayStation Days of Play event will take place across three stages. Those taking part will need to play a set number of games for at least an hour per week between them, although that can be done across multiple gaming sessions. If those games are played with a friend who has also signed up to take part, players will earn double points. A certain number of trophies will need to be earned each week too, although each player can only contribute six trophies per week to encourage more of the community join in. Players can register to take part and track the community goals on the PlayStation website. If players manage to complete all of the community goals each week, those who took part every week will earn themselves a bonus PSN avatar and PS4 dynamic theme:
