Check out these hard trophy lists in the updated PS Store Summer sale

Hopefully, you've been able to avoid those 17 unobtainable platinum trophies in the PS Store Summer Sale. The principle behind our selection of games is that they must provide quality and substance. These games will all have varying degrees of difficulty, and they may not be the most difficult platinums around — but each should still provide a healthy challenge. Check out the hardest games we've picked below!


Game Length Difficulty Missables
Ghostrunner 10-15 hours icon
Ghostrunner combines multiple games into one to create a unique and diverse game world. If Mirrors Edge delved into the world of Dark Souls, the end product would be Ghostrunner. This game is pretty brutal, testing even the most veteran players out there. Thankfully the game is quite merciful when it comes to checkpoints and getting you back into the thick of it.

Now, while the game may be fair, that doesn't mean you are in for an easy ride aiming for that platinum trophy 'GR Project Complete.' Currently, this platinum is sitting with a completion rate of only 0.70% on PSN. The Ghostrunner trophies will provide you with a decent challenge and will push you to your limits; however, thanks to the game being forgiving this platinum is not impossible if you account for practice, patience, and luck.

Aliens Fireteam Elite

Aliens Fireteam Elite trophies are unforgiving, brutal, and outlandishly difficult to earn. In fact, we may even say this is one of the most unfair trophy lists we've seen in a while, partly due to the obnoxiously hard difficulty-based trophies. As of right now, the platinum trophy 'Ultimate Badass' has an overall completion rate of 0.60%, which is higher than I would have guessed.

The difficulties you need to beat are Extreme and Insane for their respective trophies 'LV-895 Campaign Medal' and 'Reticulum Theater Medal.' If you thought you could earn all four difficulty trophies by playing the game on Insane, you're wrong, as the trophies do not stack. So, you'll need to beat the entire game a total of four times at the very least to earn the platinum.

It's highly advised you find some teammates to help you with this one as the AI companions will be virtually useless on the harder difficulties, making nigh-on-impossible to earn this platinum while playing solo. If you need help with this one you can use our site's handy gaming session creator to try and boost this platinum.

Resident Evil Village

Resident Evil Village 30-40 hours icon 29
The Resident Evil games are always pushing players with difficult challenges to overcome and Resident Evil Village is no exception to this torment. The platinum trophy 'Ethan Winters' sits with a respectable completion rate of 2.00% on PSN. More than half of the trophy list is missable, so you will need to keep an eye on these and maybe have a guide to hand so you don't needlessly replay the game more than you have to.

The biggest challenge for many will be getting an S rank in all Mercenary mode stages for the silver trophy 'Legendary Cowboy.' If you excel in this game mode then you may earn the platinum trophy relatively easily, if not, then you may be stuck grinding away trying to get that rank of yours higher. Either way, Resident Evil Village isn't going to be a quick and easy platinum experience.

That's all of the difficult trophy lists we have for you today. Are there any here you'll be tempted to play? If you're looking for more hard platinum trophies, make sure to check out our hardest PS Plus platinums list. Let us know all your thoughts in the comments below!
