Tomb Raider I-III Remastered, which launches on February 14th, will have over 200 trophies to collect on PlayStation consoles across all three games, which is exciting news for trophy hunters but comes with one interesting caveat – the PS5 version of the game won’t have any platinum trophies.
Developer Aspyr issued a statement to IGN after it was revealed that this would be the case, saying, “The PlayStation 4 version of Tomb Raider I-III Remastered features a platinum trophy, while the PS5 version does not. Players will receive both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 version of Tomb Raider I-III Remastered with their purchase. This collection includes over 200 trophies covering game completions, easter eggs, and new challenges.”
While the developer didn’t give a reason for the difference between the two versions, a similar situation occurred with last year’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which had no platinum as it was treated as DLC for Modern Warfare 2 on the platform. It’s possible that, in the desire to give each of the three Tomb Raider games included in the package its own trophy list, Aspyr has had to work with some backend limitations that ultimately meant sacrificing that shiny platinum on PS5.
Thankfully, given the nature of these games and the remastering effort we wouldn’t expect there to be any groundbreaking visual differences between the PS4 and PS5 versions of Tomb Raider I-III Remastered, outside of maybe performance and resolution differences if anything, so those of us out there that just can’t fathom playing a game with no promise of an ultimate accolade at the finish line can at least defer to the last-generation version in a pinch.
And yes, you will get a trophy for locking poor old Winston in the freezer in Croft Manor.
Tomb Raider I-III Remastered will be available on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch and PC on February 14th, 2024. Check out a trailer below:
