With its recent arrival onto the PS Plus service, you may have perused the Immortals of Aveum trophies and started wondering just how hard that platinum is to earn. Well, hopefully with these Immortals of Aveum platinum trophy tips, you'll have all the intel you need to add this one to your collection. Sadly, this is one game that won't be making it onto our list of the easiest platinum trophies to earn.

4 Immortals of Aveum trophy list tips and tricks

Immortals of Aveum came to PlayStation Plus in April 2024 as a monthly Essential game. Published by EA, this game is an open-world action-adventure title that sees you utilizing magic to blitz your enemies away in a high-octane FPS epic. While Immortals received a lot of flak at its launch, I feel like a lot of it was underserved. The game is actually a lot of fun and well worth checking out. Especially as it is currently a 'free' title you can pick up through PS Plus.

However, be ready for the trophies as they aren't going to be an easy ride — though at least they are not the hardest either. We have missable trophies, difficulty-related trophies, and collectibles to contend with. So, check out all of our Immortals of Aveum trophy tips and tricks below, and that should hopefully guide you to platinum glory.

We highly recommend you play Immortals of Aveum twice

Seeing as there is a gold trophy for beating the entire game on the Immortal difficulty setting ('Grand Magnus'), you may be tempted to just persevere and try and beat the game from the get-go on this difficulty setting. However, there really isn't much use in doing this and we highly recommend you play through the game on an easier difficulty setting to start with and aim to clear up a majority of the trophy list this way. Your sanity will thank you.

There are two reasons justifying this approach. First, all of your skills, weapons, and equipment will carry over into new game plus, meaning you will be a force to be reckoned with by the time you are ready to tackle this higher difficulty. Also, you will have a stronger understanding of how certain enemies work, what tactics to employ on each boss, and you needn't have to deal with beating all of the side missions on the higher difficulty and can just zoom through the main story.

Second, you are going to need to max out your three skill trees for blue, green, and red magic. Each skill tree corresponds to a silver trophy ('Master of Ultramarine,' 'Master of Carmine,' and 'Master of Malachite'). The issue is, even after you beat the main story and clear up most of the open world, you will have only earned enough skill points to level up one skill tree and part of another one. So, you're going to have to replay/grind to be able to max these out. Hence, it just makes sense to do two separate playthroughs and work towards all these trophies in a far less stressful manner.

There are plenty of missable trophies to be aware of

There are multiple trophies that can sadly be missed if you aren't on the ball. A trophy that can be easily missed in Chapter 5 is 'Socialite,' which asks you to speak to everybody you possibly can at a party that happens once you become an Immortal yourself. The people you need to speak to are Kirkan, Silas Mede, Zendara, Devyn, Belming, Ambassador Damolie, Orphe, and Captain Selko.

There are also five more trophies connected to exhausting every possible piece of dialogue with specific characters (Silas Mede, Ambassador Damolie, Magister Belming, Hauser, and Orphe) that are also highly missable. Thankfully, as long as you don't progress past Chapter 13 and speak to every one of these characters in that specific chapter, you can exhaust all their dialogue and get all five trophies in one swift move.

Lastly, make sure to take note of the secret trophies 'Fowl Play,' 'Backtracker,' and 'Good Boy;' all of which can be easily missed and are connected to actions you take in specific chapters. However, if you don't want spoilers, we won't delve into them any more than this in this guide.

Don't get too swept up in collecting all of those chests

There is a trophy ('Treasure Hunter') which will be rewarded to you upon collecting all of the gold chests in the game. These chests are not actually gold and instead have a giant red crystal on the front of them. These are the ones that count toward the trophy. So, you can freely ignore all other chests if you want. However, we advise opening everything you see — you never know what you may find.

There are 120 golden chests spread throughout the world of Immortals and we recommend that you don't get too swept up in trying to find them all to start with. Sure, if you come across them, by all means, unlock them and take what prizes lay inside. However, a lot of these golden chests are out of reach until you acquire certain skills and abilities that will unlock as you progress through the main story.

So, it makes more sense to come back to these chests after you finish the story and use a guide to quickly nab every one of them up and earn yourself a new shiny silver trophy. There is no point in trying to reach a chest that turns out to be out of reach until you progress further into the story. Save yourself the headache.

Make sure you beat the many different Shroudfanes

Shroudfanes are small monuments you will come across in Immortals of Aveum which are scattered throughout the game world. There are 26 Shroudfanes to complete, six of which contain incredibly powerful bosses. However, these six will not appear until after you have beaten the main story. So, don't fret about these until much later in the game.

Completing all 26 Shroudfanes will unlock two trophies, 'Shroudfane Surveyor' (complete all Shroudfanes) and 'Tip of the Spear' (beat the six bosses of the Shroudfanes) — though that's not their only benefit. You see, beating each Shroudfane will reward you with a perk of some sort, be it gear, a boost to your maximum health, or a boost to your maximum magic. All of which will come in clutch when you face off against some of those tough-as-nail bosses towards the end of the game.

That's all the tips we have for you. Will you be attempting to platinum Immortals of Aveum? What do you think of the trophy list? Do you think we should add the game to our list of the best PS Plus games? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
