Knights Contract is a third-person hack-and-slash action adventure in a dark fantasy setting. Characters are loosely based on those in the classic Faust German legend.
Taking place during Europe's Middle Ages, Heinrich Hofmann is a witch-executioner who has been cursed with immortality. along with Gretchen, a reincarnated witch, the two must fight off a horde of monsters that have been unleashed by Dr. Faust.
Knights Contract received lukewarm reviews, with an average score of 64%, praised for its premise and story, but criticized for several technicalities, such as the quick-time events and camera angles.
The game is not overly time consuming, but will require some serious skills. At least three full playthroughs are required, each on a higher difficulty mode, as well as earning an S-Rank in each episode, and finding collectibles. Completing the game on its hardest difficulty setting, as well as some of the QTE events and getting certain S-Ranks, is what pushes this Platinum's difficulty rating up to a 3-star.
The Platinum could take roughly 30 hours of gameplay, through this heavily depends on your skills.
Unless you're not confident in your gaming skills, there's no reason to play the game on Page (easy) mode in regards to working towards the Platinum. We recommend beginning your playthrough on Squire (medium) difficulty, which is the easiest mode that you can work on earning S-ranks.
During your playthrough on Squire, you'll want to find the collectibles along the way, so check out one of the guides under our Links tab. Also, you can work towards getting S-ranks in each episode. If you fail to do so, fear not. There is an Episode Select after beating the game. Simply go back and try again, until you've unlock the Spirit Cannon, which in turn will unlock The Witch's Ultimate Weapon trophy.
Completing the game on Squire will also unlock the Hexen Knight (hard) mode. So, your next step is to go through and beat the game again, this time on Hexen.
Finally, after beating the game on Hexen, you'll unlock Witchslayer (hardest) mode. Hopefully by now, you should be fully upgraded and very familiar with the game, enough that performing your playthrough on Witchslayer shouldn't be too difficult.
Lastly, if there are any trophies you still need to mop-up, you can use the Episode Select to do so, until you've got a shiny new Platinum in your collection.
