How to get platinum in Horizon Forbidden West

General information about platinum in Horizon Forbidden West

The passage of platinum is quite simple and has a difficulty of 2-3 out of 10 points. Some claim it’s even easier than Horizon Zero Dawn. 

You can complete platinum in 50 hours. During the race you will receive trophies:

  • platinum – 1 piece;
  • gold – 1 piece;
  • silver – 7 pieces;
  • bronze – 50 pieces.

The rewards on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 are no different. Therefore, you can easily transfer achievements, progress and trophies to different versions of the console, for example, from 4 to 5.

All trophies are unmissable. There may be a hitch for the player when receiving only one thing – scanning cars. For the complexity of the passage of the plot there is no separate trophy. So play at a pace that suits you.

You need to complete the tasks of the party members and several missions around the game world, namely:

  1. The task “The choice of the leader of the Hermits”.
  2. A series of missions “Rescue Barriers”. In the village of Barrier, to get the trophy, you need to complete several related quests “Deep grief”, “Shadow from the past”, “Cleavers”, “Twilight path” and “Shadow in the West”.
