Darksiders II Deathfinitive Edition
Darksiders II Deathfinitive Edition is an improved version of the original 2012 Darksiders II released on the PS3, ported onto the PlayStation 4 in 2015 which includes all the DLC as well as removes the online features. The game is an action hack-and-slash with RPG elements, and a sequel to the 2010 Darksiders.
As the End of Days fast approaches, the most feared member of the Four Horsemen, Death, sets out to stop Armageddon from happening. During his quest, Death learns that an ancient evil lurks which can threaten all of Creation.
The original Darksiders II recieved positive reviews with an average score of 83%, praised for its graphics and environments, story, and overall fun gameplay.
This is a high 2-star rating. While the game is rather average in terms of difficulty, you'll need a fair bit of time to work your way towards the Platinum. At least one full playthrough is required if starting on Deathinitive mode, with plenty of cleaning up afterwards.
Expect around 40-50 hours of gameplay for the Platinum, depending on the number of playthroughs you do, and skills.
NOTE: The trophies on the PS4 have a separate list from those on the PS3.
All the online has been removed from the PS4 version, including the Pay It Forward trophy. Instead, we have an added It's Definitive trophy which requires a playthrough on Deathinitive mode, the hardest. So, if you're in a rush for that Platinum, we recommend beginning there.
Deathinitive mode isn't too difficult, and if you're having any trouble, check out the walkthroughs and guides under our Links tab. However, starting on Deathinitive means you won't be beginning with any skills or weapon upgrades. So if you prefer the easier, but much longer route, than start a playthrough on an easier mode.
While you'll be unlocking a number of story-related trophies along the way, it's up to you if you wish to obtain the others during this step, or wait until you've completed the game. There is nothing missable, so long as you select NOT New Game+, but instead continue on the same save which allows you to go back and complete anything you're still missing.
Whether you do them during your first playthrough or after, you'll eventually need to find all the collectibles, which includes opening all the Death Tombs for the Abracadabra trophy, the four garden gnomes and obtaining the SnoMAD Scythes for the Gnomad trophy, 25 Lost Relics for the Antiquing trophy, and all the different Stonebites for the All You Can Eat Buffet trophy. You'll also want to complete all the side quests, and a few other miscellaneous trophies. Be sure to check out the Darksiders II Deathfinitive Edition trophy guide links under our Links tab for more details.
Once all that is finished, you can safely start up a New Game+ on Easy mode, where you simply play through in order to reach level 30 for the Epic! trophy.
Lastly, there's the Crucible to complete, for the Bravo Old Chap and Is There Anyone Else? trophies, where you will need to fend off 100 waves of enemies. If you leave this for last, the it shouldn't be too difficult now that you've got some powerful weapons and have completely leveled up.
