Platinum Club – trophy tips to 100% Beyond Two Souls

Beyond E3 screens

No one knows what happens to us after we die, but with the promise of supernatural silverware calling us to the other side, we bravely delve into the great wide Beyond. As the game is heavily story driven, almost all of the trophies are hidden, which is great for avoiding spoilers, but means a guide is essential if you want to bag them all in the minimum two playthroughs required.

Platinum Club – trophy tips to 100% Beyond Two Souls

From the start you should select Duo mode, then use two pads to guide Jodie and Aiden all the way through for Together Till The End – since you only control one at a time, this can be done easily on your own.

The first run is about being good, succeeding in all QTEs and helping the key characters survive to the end, so make sure Walter, Jimmy, Paul, Norah, Cole and Ryan all make it to unlock Saved All. When you reach the ultimate decision in the Black Sun chapter, returning to reality awards Chose Life and opens up a choice of four endings. Pick any one to get The End once the credits have rolled, and if you used a guide you should also receive Explorer at this point for discovering all of the bonuses.

Beyond’s trophy quest requires a lot of replays & willpower to watch cut scenes repeatedly.

You now need to replay the Epilogue three more times to see all the other endings, which, tediously, takes about 15 minutes a go (thanks to all the unskippable scenes). Once they’re taken care of, go back to Black Sun and save everyone as before, but then select Beyond to collect Chose Afterlife and view the fifth ending.

After being mostly good up to this point, the gloves are off for the second playthrough as we are now aiming to be as bad as possible. Uncontrollable requires you to take every opportunity to be evil with Aiden, but this can be tricky. You must choke Kathleen during the initial experiment, jump the possessed Embassy guard off the balcony, set the teen house party on fire, strangle the kid during the snowball fight, throttle Jodie’s adopted father Philip when he abandons her and totally ruin the dinner date with young Ryan. Naughty Aiden, indeed.

Jodie talks about “watching the same
film looping over and over again” during
most endings and that’s exactly how
going for the platinum feels,

Take the appropriate actions (or inactions) so that the key characters you saved during the first playthrough die this time around, then choose Beyond to unlock A Better World by joining them all in the Infraworld for the sixth ending. Use chapter select to play through Black Sun yet again and let everyone die, then pick Life followed by Alone for ending number seven. You’ll no doubt be utterly sick of this mission by now, but go through Black Sun one last time and fail the QTEs when you get attacked in the condenser to reveal the final outcome for All Endings…, along with Beyond: Two Souls Master.

Jodie talks about “watching the same film looping over and over again” during most endings and that’s exactly how going for the platinum feels, but if you can cope with all of the repetition then you should be able to polish it off in around 20 hours or so.
