Well, dang. If you’re one of those players who just has to nab every trophy and achievement your games have to offer, you’re going to have your work cut out with Devil May Cry 5.
If you don’t want to have the list spoiled for yourself, you’d better check out now. Otherwise, let’s press onwards and see what kind of brutal hoops the game expects us to jump through to get that elusive platinum.
Now, some games are quite merciful when it comes to trophy/achievement hunting. Take the excellent Marvel’s Spider-Man, for instance. It’s a title that’s renowned for offering an "easy plat," and the platinum trophy rate for the game already stood at 10% just a month or so after its release. All of the game’s trophies were quite uninspired and straightforward for the most part, including those from the DLC (each chapter came with its own separate crop of trophies).
At first glance, Devil May Cry 5 looks like it’s heading in that direction too. As Destructoid reports, a lot of the game’s trophies are also quite standard stuff. You’ve got the likes of Fall from Grace (complete the prologue), Protect the People (defeat all enemies in Mission 1) and Reunion (clear Mission 3).
That’s how a lot of games like to do it, though. Lulling you into a false sense of security with the standard stuff, then hitting you with the big angry platinum roadblock. In Devil May Cry 5’s case, that roadblock would be the Worthy of Legend trophy.
The requirements? Clear all missions with S rank on all difficulties except Heaven or Hell. That’s right, friends. You don’t just need to do everything nigh-perfectly, but do everything nigh-perfectly five times. The report goes on to remind us that the Devil May Cry series has never been one to mess around when it comes to difficulty settings: in Hell and Hell mode, enemies have increased health and Dante can’t take a single hit.
What do you think, then, fans? Are you committed enough to shoot for the platinum? Check out the full trophy list back at PowerPyx, and see if you think you’re up to this monumental task.
