Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is far larger than its predecessor and that may spell bother for trophy hunters. Extra space typically equals extra collectibles. And regardless that this sequel does have extra stuff to seize, the Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Platinum trophy isn’t as dreary because it might be and is nicely value grabbing.
Is the Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Platinum trophy troublesome?
There are solely two small sticking factors with this Platinum. The “You’ve Acquired A Buddy” trophy that unlocks after directing every companion to assault 10 occasions is simple sufficient, but it surely’s missable because it’s not potential to make use of each companion after the credit roll. The sport typically isn’t onerous sufficient to require this form of further help, so it may be straightforward to miss this means and miss out on the associated trophy.
The trophy that can take considerably extra time, nevertheless, is the “Splurgle” trophy that requires gamers to unlock each merchandise in Doma’s store on Koboh. It deviously doesn’t outright say it, but it surely calls for all 100 Priorite Shards. Priorite Shards present up on the map after getting a sure improve, which makes this considerably much less tiresome since doing this with out such help could be a nightmare. The one troubling shard is the infamous one hidden in a fickle pile of Nekko poop.
Nevertheless, the map doesn’t differentiate between Priorite Shards, Jehda Scrolls, and Datadiscs, so gamers should get fortunate or intuit what collectible the obscure “Treasure” marker is referring to. Jehda Scrolls are solely on Jehda and Datadiscs are solely in Jedi-relevant areas like Meditation Chambers, that means it’s not as random because it might be. Most Priorite Shards are locked to Koboh, and that narrows the search, too. “Most” is the operative phrase right here since a handful are unfold throughout different planets, a difficult caveat that isn’t implied in its menu.
Respawn Leisure will ideally add some higher collectible counters down the highway, but it surely has a lot larger points on its plate. The sport nonetheless suffers from a gluttony of technical points and slowdown throughout platforms, and that needs to be a precedence. There have been studies of some glitchy trophies (just like the “Perk of the Job” trophy), however these hiccups are comparatively tame when in comparison with different 2023 video games like Atomic Coronary heart and Earlier than Your Eyes that launched with notoriously buggy trophies.
Whereas grander in scope, that is all much less annoying than Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for a number of causes. Fallen Order lacked quick journey, which made getting round and grabbing each final doodad a laborious chore. In Survivor, gamers can see the place a collectible is and customarily warp fairly near it.
Is it a grind to get the Platinum trophy in Jedi: Survivor?
Survivor additionally doesn’t require gamers to actually seize all the things. Scans, cosmetics, Datadiscs, Jehda Scrolls, seeds, stim canisters, and Drive echoes are all largely non-compulsory, and the record solely asks gamers to kill each bounty and discover each fish, each of that are listed within the menu. Solely legendary enemies will not be listed within the menu, but it surely’s not too onerous to recollect which alien beast you’ve slayed. That is in stark distinction with Fallen Order that made gamers observe down each final object; one thing that was, once more, made even worse by the shortage of quick journey.
Popping the Star Wars Jedi: Surivor Platinum takes roughly the identical period of time in each video games, however the philosophy of solely requiring gamers discover a portion of all the things is far much less harrowing. It’s a method that results in much less burnout and is usually extra pleasurable than looking out each nook and cranny, particularly since searching for the previous couple of items of any collectible might be crushingly tedious.
Jedi: Survivor’s remaining trophies are relatively easy, easy, and even humorous, just like the one which has gamers dropkicking an enemy whereas carrying a mullet. It’s not an ideal trophy record, however Respawn’s restraint in not turning this right into a collect-a-thon Platinum that takes 80 hours is commendable as a result of it might have very simply been that. Being a Jedi requires endurance, however fortunately the Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Platinum trophy doesn’t require an awesome quantity of it.
