Welcome to the Sackboy: A Big Adventure Trophy Guide! As undoubtedly one of the best platformers of 2020, the story follows Sackboy who embarks on an adventurous yet perilous journey to rescue his friends from the clutches of the evil Vex. It is up to Sackboy to defeat Vex and bring peace back to the world.
The good news is that you don’t need to 100% the game to earn the Platinum. You still need to collect most Dreamer’s Orbs (275 to access all levels), but not all of them are needed to progress through the story, let alone 100%ing the game. Most trophies are instead tied to killing minions a certain way and to the multiplayer side of the game. You can still earn the Platinum through local couch co-op or via online Shareplay (PS+ required for Shareplay method and both players must own the game). If you choose to use Shareplay, remember that the trophies will unlock only for the host, so if your friend wants to unlock the trophies as well, you’ll have to do everything twice.
Step 1: Play through the Story
The story takes place in Craftworld. Craftworld has 5 different worlds: The Soaring Summit, Colossal Canopy, The Kingdom of Crablantis, The Interstellar Junction, and The Center of Craftworld. There’s also one additional Bonus world, The Wonderplane, which unlocks after defeating Vex for the final time. Each world has close to 10 levels, including up to two multiplayer ones, a Knitted Knight Trial (Time Trial) and up to a couple of a Remix levels (the most challenging levels in that world played from end to start and on a timer). During this step, simply focus on enjoying the levels (they’re lots of fun) and collect as many Dreamer’s Orbs as you can. As you play, you will naturally unlock a bunch of combat-related trophies and miscellaneous ones.
Step 2: Trophies Clean-up and the 300 Costume Pieces Grind
During this step, focus on any combat-related or miscellaneous single-player-only trophies you’re still missing. Additionally, you might want to clean up any remaining Prizes as part of your journey to 300 Costume Pieces. You probably left some Dreamer’s Orbs behind as well. As soon as pick something up in a level, you can quit to the hub. No need to finish it.
Step 3: Multiplayer Trophies
These trophies can still be unlocked either through Shareplay or local couch co-op with a 2nd controller. Simply team up with a friend to get them all. If you don’t have a friend to play the game with, remember that you can play online (via Shareplay and must have PS+ subscription), for “Up high!” and “Fun Multiplied”. Technically, you could even unlock them solo with a second controller, but it’s very unnatural and little fun. While these two trophies can be technically unlocked solo with a second controller, you require some dexterity handling two controllers at the same time. This makes the gameplay experience a bit unnatural and little fun. Our advice is to find a friend to help you locally via couch co-op or online.
Step 4: Wonderplane’s Ultimate Challenge
Time to take on the hardest trophy of the game String It Together. Check the related trophy description for more information. After this, the Platinum for Sackboy: A Big Adventure will be yours! Congratulations!
