A Plague Tale: Requiem — Perfect Throw trophy and achievement guide

A Plague Tale: Requiem is a rather somber tale filled with plenty of sadness and loss throughout, so the segments where our main characters, siblings Amicia and Hugo, get to laugh and smile are always welcomed. Some of the game's trophies and achievements are tied to these brief moments of respite, such as Perfect Throw, which tasks you with successfully completing all throws in the crown game. If you haven't come across this one naturally, no worries – we'll tell you where to find the crown game and how to complete it below.

How to find the crown game to earn the Perfect Throw trophy or achievement

The crown game is found in the market during the opening segment of Chapter VIII: A Sea of Promises. Early on, you'll dock on the island and enter the city, where you'll be tasked with wandering around a market and inquiring about where you may find the tree and bird from Hugo's dream.

Step 1: As you continue through the market, you'll eventually make your way down a tight alleyway where Amicia will ask whether they should be concerned about the Count's army. Around this time, keep an eye out on your left for a set of stairs leading into an optional section of the city with a few stalls and such.

Step 2: When you've entered the optional area down the stairs, note the largest stall with four crowns of flowers hanging in it. Approach this spot and initiate a conversation to begin the crown game, which Amicia will happily agree to play as Hugo cheers her on.

Step 3: You'll need to aim and throw one pot through each crown to win the game, which shouldn't prove too difficult. Just take your time and be sure not to accidentally hit the outside of a crown. If you fail, you can always reload your checkpoint and give it another go.

When you've completed the crown game, you'll earn the Perfect Throw trophy or achievement, as well as the Flower Crown souvenir.

PS5 themes: Can you customize your homescreen?

The PS5 launched with many features we loved from the PS4 missing. Over the years, a few have come back, but one that many aren't sure about is themes. These could be earned, downloaded, purchased, or come included with certain games that gave your home screen a new look and background soundtrack related to different games or concepts. This made customizing your home screen that much more fun and personal. However, is this feature on the PS5? Here's whether or not you can put custom themes on your new console, or change the background.
Does the PS5 have themes?

No, the PS5 does not have any themes. Instead, whenever you highlight a game or app on your home screen, the background will change to art related to that game, as well as show more information on it. While far from ideal, it is the closest we are likely to get to the themes we had on our PS4.
Can you change the background on a PS5?
Again, due to the PS5 dynamically changing the background depending on what you're currently looking at, there's no way to alter your background at this time. Since the background is constantly changing, even if you had a custom image, it would always be changing as you cycled through games. There are a few other ways you can customize your PS5, however, unless Sony gives us the option with an update, there's no way to set a theme on your PS5.

All cross-platform games (PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC)
Two squads of heroes clash in an Overwatch 2 trailer.

Cross-platform support is becoming more important in the world of video games. Multiplayer hits like Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and Fortnite have pushed crossplay into the limelight, and now most AAA multiplayer games release with at least partial cross-platform support. Finding every cross-platform game is no easy feat, though, so we did the hard work to bring you a comprehensive list of games that support crossplay.

Unfortunately, there aren't any rules when it comes to crossplay, so each game handles the feature a little differently. To make matters more confusing, certain backward-compatible games on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X still support crossplay on the most recent hardware, even if there isn't an official release for that hardware.
