At the time of writing, Sony hasn’t confirmed a release date for the PlayStation Stars loyalty program. However, in its announcement post on the PlayStation Blog, the company did explain that the program will be launching later in 2022. While this only cements the fact that the program will launch at some point before December 31, it does at least give us a release window in which to look forward to it.

The PlayStation Stars loyalty program is a free-to-join initiative that only those with a PlayStation console can sign up for. Once you’ve joined, you’ll be rewarded for playing games as you normally do with loyalty points that can be redeemed for digital collectibles and other prizes such as PSN Wallet top-ups. The full range of rewards hasn’t been revealed just yet.

Rewards can be earned by completing monthly campaigns that don’t require specific games. Instead, these campaigns are more about your activity as a player. However, there will be other rewards locked behind tournaments and very precise accomplishments, such as being the first person to earn the platinum trophy in a title in a brand new blockbuster title such as The Last Of Us Part 1. This last point will give trophy hunters even more of an incentive to play the biggest PlayStation games so they can be known as the first ones to earn the highest award possible from it.
