Playstation has announced a new community event for Playstation 4 and 5 gamers called Seize The Throne.
The event involves a ‘chess-themed celebration’ where players will work together to three stages of community goals to access the inner chambers of the king’s towers and breach the throne room. Doing so will reward you with new PSN avatars and a one-of-a-kind PS4 theme.
Playstation Blog has listed the steps to participate:
1. Sign Up
Register with your PSN Sign-In ID here. Once signed up, players will be automatically entered into all future Stages of the program and the question around.
The event is open to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 users in the following locations: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, United Kingdom, and the United States.

2. Start Playing!
There are three Stages throughout the event, with the first Stage kicking off on November 2. Each Stage will require players to complete the following activities to earn points and achieve the Community Goal for each Stage:
- Play PS4/PS5 games — Every PS4/PS5 game that each player plays for at least an hour (across as many sessions as they’d like during the week) will earn points towards the Community Goal. Players will earn extra points towards the Goal if they play games with users on their Friends List (who have also signed up to participate).
- Use the “Share” feature — Every image or video that each player uploads via the on-console Share feature to PSN Friends or to social media will earn points that count towards the Community Goal. Each player can have a maximum of six PS4/PS5 Shares a day count towards the Goal.
- Earn Trophies — Each player can earn a maximum of six PS4/PS5 Trophies per day to contribute points that count towards the Community Goal. Earn extra points towards the Goal for every five trophies earned in a single PS4/PS5 game.
Here’s a breakdown of the points you can earn for each activity:
PlayStation Player Activities Number of Points Play any game of Player’s choosing 10 Play any game of Player’s choosing with another Player 15 Use Share feature 5 Obtain Bronze Trophy 5 Obtain Silver Trophy 10 Obtain Gold Trophy 20 Obtain five (5) trophies in a single game 25
