PlayStation has just announced their latest community event Seize The Throne. This new community event was inspired by their latest global brand trailer about PlayStation gamers visualizing that they are playing chess and competing against each other to be the King.
Just like the trailer, the theme of this new community event is the same as chess. By playing together, players can complete three goals to reach the King’s Tower, access the Inner Chamber and breach the Throne Room. Doing so earns them exclusive PSN avatars and a one-on-of-a-kind PS4 theme.
Eligible players will also get a chance to win a grand prize by competing in the PlayStation trivia which will be revealed on November 10. The Grand Prize includes a PlayStation 5 console, the King’s PlayStation Shapes Ring Set, and a bundle featuring a Pulse 3D Wireless Headset as well as a PlayStation Store digital gift card ($100 USD or equivalent provided in local currency).
You can now register for the event by signing up here.
