PS5 users can now view all of the game’s hidden trophies at the touch of a button as part of the latest console software update.
In addition to introducing 1440p support and a host of new social tools, the new PS5 update comes with some hidden quality-of-life features. While Sony was silent on the changes, YouTuber Mystic tagged them all and noticed a subtle new feature in the console’s trophy list.
A new switch lets you discover all of the hidden trophies in the game, making it easier than ever for trophy hunters to track down their missing achievements. Before this update, PS5 users had to reveal each hidden trophy individually, which could take a long time for the titles that demand the greatest achievements.
How do I view hidden trophies on PS5?
To discover hidden trophies in the game, go to the “Trophies” menu and find the game you are looking for. Touch the radio button on the DualSense wireless controller to open the drop-down menu and toggle the “Show all” option.
Be careful though. While some of the hidden trophies refer to skill challenges or Easter eggs, many are used to hide the main story bits. If you’re playing a game with a heavy storyline and want to avoid all spoilers, it’s best to hide hidden trophies.
Many other minor updates have also been made in the new software patch. As Mystic delves into his movie, the console’s screen reader capabilities have been improved, his web browser now supports zoom controls, and it’s easier to view another user’s profile after accepting a friend request or sending him a message.
More tempting, PSVR 2 – Sony’s upcoming next-generation virtual reality headset – is now mentioned by name in the PS5’s Bluetooth settings. This is just a fleeting name check, but suggests the headset will be released next year during the official launch window.
While all these changes are minor, let’s be thankful that Sony doesn’t remove any more features from the PS5.
