Beyond Two Souls Trophy Guide. Difficulty: ** A few playthroughs are required for the Platinum trophy, though the game itself is not particularly difficult.
|Beyond: Two Souls
Beyond: Two Souls PS4
Beyond: Two Souls is an action-adventure, interactive drama, in which players control two characters: Jodie Holmes and an incorporeal entity named Aiden. Players move the characters about, interacting with objects and NPCs in order to progress the story, as well as make choices in both the dialogues with other characters and throughout the game's progression, thereby altering the outcome of the story.
Since birth, Jodie Holmes has possessed a psychic connection with a strange entity named Aiden. She sets out on an adventure to learn the truth about herself, while outrunning the CIA and escaping danger.
Beyond: Two Souls received very mixed reviews, with some online magazines awarding it an 8 or 9, while others gave it a 4 or 5, bringing the total average score to 66%. Praise was given to the performances of Ellen Page and William Dafoe, motion capture, graphics, and interactive storytelling techniques, while those who gave low scores criticized its passive gaming experience and unbelievable plot.
Much like Quantic Dream's previous title, Heavy Rain, this one is very story driven and, in terms of skills, not particularly difficult. You will need a few playthroughs, more if you're not following a guide, and some time on your hands.
Expect roughly 25-30 hours on this one.
NOTE: You will need either a second controller, or a smartphone, for the platinum.
ALSO NOTE: The trophies on the PS4 version have a separate list than those on the PS3.
We suggest first playing through the game from beginning to end, enjoying the story. This is just our personal recommendation, as finding collectibles and targeting particular endings will require following one of the guides in our Links page, which in turn can spoil the story. Playing it through without a guide will still earn you some trophies along the way, as well as one more ending you don't need to worry about later on.
After that, or if you simply want to get that platinum in as few playthroughs as possible, we recommend playing through with Duo mode on, using either a second controller or smartphone. If you don't have a friend to play with you, doing this on your own is completely doable, as you're never controlling both characters at the same time. This will earn you both the Two Souls and Together Till The End trophies.
Also, it should be noted that you can play on Easy mode which will make the Quick Time Events easier to perform, and won't affect the trophies.
During this playthrough, you'll want to find all the 20 collectibles along the way. Check out one of the collectible guides or even trophy guides for the Explorer trophy in our Links page for their locations.
Finally, as you play through, follow one of the guides in our Links page to make sure everyone required is alive by the end of the game, for the Saved All trophy.
After that, it's time to start the mop-up process. Depending on what you did during your first playthrough, this may mean another full playthrough for the A Better World trophy in which every required character dies, or making opposite choices to ones you've already done. From this point on, check out the Beyond: Two Souls trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you're still missing, and their requirements. Particularly the All Endings trophy. While some may require another full playthrough, others can be done with a simple chapter select.
