PlayStation tournaments are coming to PS5 this year

PS5 players will have more opportunities to compete against each other by the end of 2022.

The competition has been at the heart of gaming since its inception. From placing high scores in arcades 35 years ago to winning 100 consecutive Slayer matches in Halo Infinite. Yes, someone really did that. If you don’t like playing single player campaigns and nothing else, then you probably like having a little competition in your games. PlayStation plans to roll out a little more of this for PS5 players later this year.

PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan gave a presentation this week in which he revealed a lot of information about what the company plans for the distant and immediate future. One exciting reveal that you might have missed with all of the other big news is the arrival of PlayStation tournaments on PS5. A feature that was first introduced on PS4 in 2016 but hasn’t really made its way onto PS5 yet.

“We are also planning to introduce a new tournament feature on PS5,” confirmed Ryan. Information on what this will look like and if it is drastically different from the same feature on PS4 has been sparse. It should offer the opportunity to compete against other players in a variety of different PS5 games, likely with prizes up for grabs. Ryan didn’t give an exact date of arrival either, only sometime later this year.

Sony filed a patent for integrating online tournaments last year that may go hand in hand with the introduction of tournaments on PS5. It can also mean that brackets can be generated over the PlayStation Network instead of relying on the games themselves to require competitive functionality. This in turn could open up the possibility of holding tournaments in other games that were previously not considered under the tournament function.

As exciting as the prospect of going up against someone in Astro’s Playroom, even if that might work, it wasn’t the greatest story that came out of Ryan’s presentation. The highlights included news about the PS VR2. We got a first look at the headset and even talked about one of the games that will be available when the next generation VR system hits the market. Horizon: Call Of The Mountain, a spin-off from Zero Dawn and the upcoming Forbidden West.
