PlayStation is giving PS4 users a free theme that can be redeemed with a code as the last late part of the Women’s History Month 2022 celebration.
Playstation 4 Themes allow players to purchase wallpapers for their console’s home screen. These themes range from officially licensed art, from PlayStation exclusive titles to world event celebrations. However, the theme feature has been removed from PlayStation 5, much to the dismay of many PlayStation fans.
PlayStation 5 lacks this UI feature because themes are more than just static wallpapers. Themes can change menu colors and switch positions or images to adapt to different submenus on the home screen. The themes also have a nice community element, as they are often rewards for community tasks or given to players as part of celebrations.
Sony hasn’t forgotten about this feature, though, as PlayStation 4 users can now claim another free theme, this time as part of PlayStation’s celebrations for Women’s History Month. Women’s History Month ran all through March, but PlayStation has only just released the free theme now because it wants to “continue to celebrate women in gaming.” The free theme can be redeemed with codes specific to different regions. These codes are as follows:
- America – 5DGE-AKNX-CGCD
- Europe – 6NN5-B2NK-XQM9
- Japan – LDKE-4JNE-GJ57
- Other Regions – KJPP-L5NK-GCBX
PlayStation has previously released free themes to celebrate events like Pride Month, along with previous Women’s History Months. However, this year’s theme is a far cry from these previous iterations of the theme. Previous Women’s History Month themes often feature artwork from some of PlayStation’s most iconic female characters, such as Ellie from The last of us part 2 and Aloy van Horizon Zero Dawn†
This year’s theme, however, is his own piece of original artwork with no connection to games for the system. The theme is a female clay model-style gamer reclining with a PS4 controller in hand. The background continues this plasticine-esque design with the iconic and controversial face buttons of the PlayStation controller in the same style and the circle button reworked into the ♀ symbol for women.
While some PlayStation fans were most likely hoping for another crossover artwork of their favorite female characters, this unique design for the free theme is refreshing. PlayStation could simply release another crossover background of the female characters from its exclusive titles, as it had done for the 2018 and 2019 Women’s History Months. But completely changing the art style doesn’t just show PlayStation isn’t getting complacent about it. acknowledging these celebrations, but also that PlayStation hasn’t left PS4 themes yet, leaving open the possibility that the feature could eventually come to PS5.
