How To Get the Platinum Trophy in Ghost of Tsushima

Here's how to snag it as well as each of the other trophies so you'll be adding another plat to your collection in no time.


Ghost of Tsushima features 52 total Trophies, with a Platinum Trophy that requires you collect all 51 other Trophies. It can be a bit of a challenge (as well as a time suck) to complete every single task to get that coveted Platinum Trophy, but it's perfectly doable with a bit of patience and determination. In fact, this one is a bit easier than other Platinums because many of the Trophies you need will unlock as you play the game.

We've put together a complete guide on how to get the Platinum Trophy as well as the rest of the Trophies in the game. Don't give up, persevere, and eventually you'll become the legend of Tsushima, with a Platinum to take home and show everyone on your friends' list.

Favor of the Kami (Bronze)

Honour the Unseen (Bronze)

Bow to 10 hidden altars across Tsushima. You'll have to do quite a bit of searching to find these altars, as they're pretty difficult to find, but it's worth finding them to secure that Platinum.
