Check out these hard trophy lists in the Essential Picks PS Store sale

Our selection of hard 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 and we hope you've been able to avoid those unobtainable platinum trophies in the Essential Picks PS Store sale. You can also check out our list of easy trophies in the latest sale as well.

Endless Dungeon

Endless Dungeon takes place at roughly the same time (and in the same universe) as Dungeon of the Endless. However, the events of Endless Dungeon take place in an entirely different part of the galaxy, so there is no direct connection between the two games. In Editor Kes' Endless Dungeon gameplay impressions, he discussed how got completely and utterly sucked into this game's addictive gameplay loop.

Endless Dungeon is a top-down twin-stick shooter roguelike that sees you and an AI or player-controlled comrade plowing through rooms, unlocking pathways, grabbing loot, and shooting at an onslaught of enemies. It's frantic, it's chaotic, and it's some of the most fun you can have.

When it comes to the trophy list, you can expect heaps of frustration and trophies that are all about trial and error. The main offenders look to be the trophies connected to reaching the main reactor under specific conditions (no leveling your skills, only using your base weapons, and not allowing the crystal robot to take any damage). These all appear to be quite trying tasks and it would explain why the platinum trophy 'Dustinium' only has an overall completion rate of 0.10% on PSN.


  • Here are the Temtem trophies
  • Length: 100+ hours
  • Difficulty: 8/10 (est)
  • Missables:
Temtem is a huge creature-collection adventure MMO. You'll stumble upon, capture, and utilize a variety of wild Temtem in battles against other players. Explore and scavenge the wonderous world of Airborne Archipelago alongside your Temtem squad. Your time here will be very reminiscent of Pokémon with you catching Temtem, battling other tamers, customizing your house, helping out your friends, and exploring an expansive online world.

However, be ready for a slog when it comes to the trophies as they are going to take a lot of work — an obscene amount of work. Currently, the platinum trophy 'Archtamer' has an overall completion rate of 0.20% on PSN. A lot of the trophies relate to finishing certain objectives while in a party of other Temtem players. Hopefully, you can find some friends to squad up with. You will also need to find and hatch all of the different Temtem in the game, something that will take a substantial amount of time.

Space Engineers

Space Engineers is a sandbox game about engineering, construction, exploration, and survival in space and on planets. There isn't really a story here — much like crafting game Minecraft, your objective is to be as creative as possible and just have fun. You'll build spaceships, space stations, and planetary outposts, pilot a bevy of ships, and, most importantly, travel through space to explore planets and gather resources to survive. It's a fantastic time for those who have a passion for all things space, like myself.

When it comes to the trophies, there are a few standouts that will cause quite a few headaches. Most of these relate to the 'Never Surrender' game mode and having to overcome some truly heinous odds (survive 100 waves of drones, make it to wave 10 with another player, and so on). If you can overcome these trials, then you will be one step closer to earning the platinum trophy 'Certified Space Engineer.' Currently, the platinum trophy sits with an overall completion rate of 0.10% on PSN.

That's all 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 list of the hardest platinum trophies on PS Plus. Let us know all your thoughts in the comments below!
