6 Easiest Platinum Trophies On PS4

As PS4 trophy hunters, we’re hard-wired to be fascinated with finishing everything and even more so with easy platinum trophies. There’s arguably nothing more satisfying than a PS4 platinum trophy for a 100% completion rate on the entire planet, and that includes when you manage to crack all five of your knuckles in a row. Actually, I’ve never done that. Sadface.

In most modern PS4 releases, it’s actually possible to get 100%… twice. You have your bog-standard save file, and then there’s the trophy set – that glorious, digital collection of all your bronze, silver, gold and platinum PS4 trophies, that’s always accompanied with the most incredible ‘ping’ sound in the universe.

It’s hard to describe why PlayStation trophies are so much fun to collect; they just are. So, to start making them pop a little easier, IGCritic humbly presents to you 6 of the easiest platinum trophies on PS4 you can currently obtain. And, unlike the PS3 days, Hannah Montana The Game isn’t an option. Unfortunately.

  1. Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune Remastered

Uncharted The Nathan Drake Collection

Time: Approx 13 hours
Difficulty: 5/10
Buy From Amazon

Uncharted is a great series, but its trophy lists leave a lot to be desired. They’re not usually very creative, and despite some level specific trophies in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, are quite bland. The Nathan Drake Collection didn’t change that one bit, and while the trophies aren’t particularly interesting, it’s one of the easiest games to platinum.

Crushing difficulty is unlocked from the get-go this time around (in the PS3 version, you had to beat the game to unlock it) meaning that one 10-hour playthrough will suffice here. You’ll want to use a Uncharted walkthrough to collect all the treasures along the way, and once the credits roll, you’ll just have a few weapon-specific trophies to clear up – which can be farmed via chapter select. You’ll have to beat three chapters of speedrun mode too, but combined, this will take you 22 minutes.

We could’ve included any game from Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection here, as all three have pretty much the same trophy list. That means you can buy one copy of the game and get three easy platinum trophies done in about 39 hours. Pure win! Crushing mode can be a little difficult, but it won’t cause you too much trouble. I’d recommend watching cat videos on Youtube when you get particularly stressed.

  1. Far Cry 4

Time: Approx 25 hours
Buy From Amazon

The hardest part of Far Cry 4’s platinum trophy might be finding people to play with online. It’s not a franchise that has fostered a strong multiplayer community, and Far Cry 4 didn’t change that one bit. You’ll have to play a single match of each game type, but given the low player counts and unstable servers in Far Cry 4, this is easier said than done!

Elsewhere, you’ll have to complete the easy singleplayer campaign, shoot some animals in the face, and complete a couple of side missions. There are a few basic bronze trophies for pimping out your weapons and skills, but most of these will come through Far Cry 4’s natural story progression.

In terms of difficulty, this PS4 platinum gets a four because of certain killing trophies. There’s a bronze trophy for murdering an enemy while riding a Buzzer helicopter, and it can be quite tricky, but should prove no problem after many, many tries. Good luck soldier!

  1. Rocket League

Time: Approx 20 Hours
Difficulty: 4/10
Buy From Amazon

Ah, Rocket League. The only easy PS4 platinum trophy that won’t be attainable by people who suffer from epileptic fits. Seriously, how many different bright, coloured explosions can one game have?

Anyhow, this one can be a bit of a grind – you’ll have the ‘Drive a total of 50km’ trophy to thank for that – but pretty much every other shiny reward comes from just playing the game. You’ll have to win 30 games and complete a nine-game season championship, but with matches lasting a total of five measly minutes getting the platinum trophy isn’t too bad. Plus, it’s just damn fun to play. I don’t know about you, but I love driving my car into giant metal balls on a weekend.

  1. Ratchet & Clank

Time: Approx 18 hours
Buy From Amazon

Ratchet & Clank may have just come out, but that doesn’t stop it from making this list of easiest platinum trophies on PS4. Clocking in at roughly 15 to 20 hours, this latest Ratchet & Clank platinum is one of the easiest in the franchise. You’ll have to complete the game twice – on easy difficulty, if you wish – collect 28 gold bolts – which are marked on your map –  and stand on a conveyor belt. Seriously. For a bronze trophy.

The game is around seven or eight hours long, and, as IGCritic called it, is one of the best games on the PS4, so those hours will fly by. Every single collectable is marked on your minimap, and you can revisit any of the planets in order to pick up some trophies you may have missed.

The only difficult trophy in the entire game is Death By Disco. To obtain it, you’ll have to make every single type of enemy in the game dance, by using the Groovitron weapon. Sounds simple, right. Wrong. There’s no way to track which enemies you have and haven’t got (besides a pen and paper) and some enemies only spawn once in the entire game. If you miss them, you’ll have to start a new playthrough just to see them again.

My advice? Spam the hell out of the Groovitron as soon as you get it if you want this easy PS4 platinum trophy.

  1. The Order: 1886

Time: Approx 7 hours
Buy From Amazon

The fact that The Order: 1886 is one of the easier platinum trophies on the PS4 – in fact, on the PSN – was probably its biggest appeal. Sure, the game looked absolutely stunning, but the letterboxed aspect ratio, by-the-numbers gameplay and all-too brief campaign were the three nails in The Order: 1886’s coffin.

Luckily, a brief campaign means trophies, and in most cases an easy platinum trophy for PS4 collection. Not since Terminator Salvation on the PS3 have trophy hunters been offered so many gold trophies for doing absolutely nothing. In fact, there aren’t any bronze trophies here, and by simply completing the campaign on any difficulty, collecting all the items along the way, then going back for a quick twenty-minute cleanup, you can have a shiny platinum trophy added to your collection in 7 or less hours.

  1. Telltale Game of Thrones: The Complete Series


Time: Approx 10 hours
Difficulty: 1/10
Buy From Amazon

Ah Telltale. You frequently toy with my emotions, stress me out and have me make near-impossible choices, but in return, I do appreciate those easy platinum trophies.

We went with Game of Thrones here (because it’s the most recent one I played) but you could have just about any of them. Tales From The Borderlands. The Wolf Among Us. The Walking Dead. All you need to do is complete the game, making any choices you want, and this easy PS4 platinum will pop up. It usually takes around ten hours to complete each Telltale game fully, and at the end of it, you’re done. No backtracking. No random ‘go here and do this’ trophies. The Wolf Among us did have a couple of collectables, but they were easily obtainable through normal gameplay.

So, trophy hunters, it’s time to unite and get chasing these easy platinum trophies on PS4 – the digital representation of how far someone will go to get 100% completion on a video game. Or, you can sit back in shame as the 0%, 24% and 7% games start to stack up, and your hopes of ever having a clean trophy record disappear faster than Mario down a pipe. Happy hunting!
