The Easiest Platinum Trophies on PS Plus Extra

Easiest Platinum Trophies PS Plus

Some people don’t care about them, but we rather like trophies. And there’s nothing quite like getting a platinum.

Trophies often make us get more out of our games, challenging us to play on a higher difficulty than we normally would, delve into multiplayer, or do out best to seek out collectibles. But not all platinum trophies require so much work. This article is all about the easiest platinum trophies on PS Plus Extra.

The new PS Plus service offers users access to hundreds of games as part of their monthly subscription. And within that subscription is a selectin of games with easy platinum trophies. We’ve picked out a handful of the easiest: all of these games you can platinum in a matter of hours, with little extra work involved on your part.

Happily, all of these titles are also great games. These aren’t games designed simply for the sake of getting trophies (come on, we’ve all seen them littering the PSN store!). Rather, these are games that offer a great experience first, and easy trophies are simply a by-product of that. So everyone’s a winner.

So, if you have a PS Plus Extra or Premium subscription and want to boost your PlayStation trophy level with some of the easiest platinums available, read on to see our picks of them.

1. Bee Simulator

  • Time to platinum: ~10 hours
  • Two missable trophies

Ever wondered what it’s like being a bee? Well, no, us neither. But adventure game Bee Simulator lets you live the life of the buzzy creature. And it’s actually rather fun. This isn’t the quickest platinum in the world: you’ll need to spend about 10 hours with the game to get it. But most of the trophies will unlock simply by playing. There are two trophies to watch out for, though: ‘It’s a Zoo Out There’ and ‘Great Hunger’ can both only be done at specific points in the game.

2. Black Mirror

  • Time to platinum: 5 hours
  • Some missable trophies

This adventure-thriller doesn’t have anything to do with Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror, unfortunately, but it’s still a pretty decent game in itself. You’ll take on the role of David Gordon as he travels back to his family’s Scottish home to uncover the truth about his father’s mysterious death. Cue a tale filled with horror, psychological scares and more.

Some trophies are missable, but if you’re thorough during your playthrough you shouldn’t have a problem. We managed to obtain the platinum simply by playing, but if you want to make sure you don’t need to do a second playthrough, you should keep an eye on a guide.

3. Concrete Genie

Concrete Genie 1 (1)

  • Time to platinum: ~6-7 hours
  • No missable trophies

A game published by Sony, Concrete Genie is simply a delight to play, telling a story about, amongst other things, overcoming bullies. It’s a beautiful story filled with beautiful art, and, as a bonus, it has one of the easiest platinum trophies on PS Plus Extra and Platinum. Many you’ll unlock simply by playing, and the rest you’ll obtain by jumping freely into the game’s world once you’re finished. Even without the promise of an easy platinum, Concrete Genie is well worth playing.

4. Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek

  • Time to platinum: 3-4 hours
  • Some missable trophies

In Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek, you’ll find yourself faced with more puzzles than you can shake a stick at. You’ll need to complete the game on expert difficulty level without skipping any minigames or using hints to get the platinum trophy, but that’s easy enough. Expert simply limits how many hints you can get – and you need to avoid using them anyway. The hardest thing here is completing puzzles under certain conditions: you’ll need to do them quickly and without making mistakes for a couple of trophies.

Once you’ve completed the game and its puzzles, and the short prequel story that unlocks when finished, that platinum trophy will be yours. Easy.

5. Last Stop

Last Stop

  • Time to platinum: ~8 hours
  • No missable trophies (chapter select)

We absolutely adore Last Stop, and if you’re a fan of narrative-led games, you will too. This tells the story of three different London residents, seemingly unconnected, but whose lives collide in the most fantastical way. Many of the trophies you’ll unlock simply by playing, but you will need to complete certain actions as make your way through. Don’t worry if you miss any, though: there’s a chapter select so you can jump right back in. Not only does Last Stop have one of the easiest platinum trophies on PS Plus Extra, it’s also one of the best games.

6. Minit

  • Time to platinum: ~4 hours
  • 2 missable trophies

A Zelda-like adventure with retro visuals, there’s a lot to love about Minit. It has one very unusual twist: you only ever have 60 seconds before you die. And so every 60 seconds, you’ll need to achieve as much as you possibly can.

There are a lot of missable trophies in Minit, so using a guide will be helpful to get the platinum trophy. But you need to play through at least twice anyway, so do yourself a favour and simply play through to enjoy the first time around. This is a great game and deserves to be appreciated!

7. The Artful Escape

The Artful Escape

  • Time to platinum: 5 hours
  • No missable trophies (chapter select)

There’s nothing else quite like The Artful Escape, and if you’re a fan of music, you’re going to love this. A story-driven adventure, it tells the story of Francis, the nephew of a legendary musician. He’s expected to follow in his uncle’s footsteps, but he doesn’t quite have it him him. Not until an alien turns up outside his window in the middle of the night and whisks him off to a universe filled with music. Yes, really.

This is one of the easiest platinum trophies to obtain on PS Plus Extra, requiring a playthrough and a bit of clean-up work. Many of the trophies you’ll unlock naturally, but if you do miss any, you can jump back to where you need to thanks to chapter select.

8. Virginia

  • Time to platinum: ~4 hours
  • Lots of missable trophies

You’re going to need to play through Virginia a couple of times to unlock all the trophies, but with a story this engaging, you’re not going to mind. And it’s not very long, with one playthrough taking less than two hours. There’s a weird, Twin Peaks like vibe to this narrative thriller, and one playthrough is likely going to leave you with questions that need answering. In terms of trophies, some of them you’ll unlock simply by playing, but a lot depend on completing very specific actions. Using a guide to clean them up on your second playthrough is a wise choice.
