Vanquish PS4 Trophies: Difficulty & Time To Platinum

Good lord is it going to take some effort to vanquish these trophies.


One of the most underrated games of all time is finally coming to the PS4 as part of a 10-year celebration alongside Bayonetta. A third-person shooter with a tonne of style and sliding, Vanquish’s PS4 trophies offer plenty of challenge for those wanting the Platinum from, erm, Platinum.

Vanquish is going to take you some sweet time to dust off for full completion, it asking you to not only complete the game, but also to complete it without dying — not even once. Throw some fiendishly difficult bronze trophies into the max and you have a game that’s going to make you work for your Platinum. It’s also identical to the PS3 trophy list, so Vanquish vets know what they’re in for.

Here are those Vanquish PS4 trophies in full. Mild spoilers follow.

“The Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle combines two utterly fantastic games into one affordable package. If you haven’t played either game, this is your chance to fix that.”
