Those players who are diligent enough to obtain the Platinum Trophy for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End go on to receive a special message from the game’s developers.
As pointed out by the Reddit user “unique-” who goes by the handle Zite75 on the PlayStation Network, after completing the PS4 Trophy List for Uncharted 4: A Thief‘s End, players will not only receive the game’s Platinum Trophy, but should also go on to get a special message from Sony and the folks at Naughty Dog for having done so. While wrapping up practically everything there is to be done within Uncharted 4 should be a reward within itself, the game’s developers have apparently decided to go the extra mile to please its fans.
Once the Platinum Trophy has been unlocked by fans in Uncharted 4, Sony and Naughty Dog send those players an email offering congratulations, proclaiming the feat to be one on par with uncovering the “treasure of a lifetime.” Plus, the developers attach an extra goodie in the form of a piece of artwork from the game’s collector’s edition for PS4.
As seen in the image below, the illustration features practically all of Uncharted 4‘s main characters from Nathan Drake, Sam Drake, and Victor “Sully” Sullivan, all the way to the action-adventure title’s unnamed henchmen of which the heroes mow down at an almost indiscriminate rate. Following the share from “unique-” on the entertainment and social news networking service, however, some Reddit users have claimed to have reached the accomplishment, but for whatever reason, haven’t received the artwork.
In any event, this isn’t the first time that players have been given an extra gift for a PlayStation game after receiving a title’s Platinum Trophy. As it happens, Bloodborne‘s Platinum Trophy rewarded fans with a special theme beyond finishing the action-RPG’s entire list of “achievements,” so to speak.
Should players be looking to go Platinum with Uncharted 4, making the attempt is not for the faint of heart. Fans will need to be at the top of their game in order to complete every task, and each one is seemingly more difficult than the last. For instance, the title has to be beaten in under six hours, it has to be played through on Crushing—that is, Uncharted 4‘s highest difficulty—and gamers must find every hidden treasure in the single-player campaign. As far as the last requirement is concerned, we can give fans a guide to every collectible, but all of the other efforts must be done on skill alone.
With Uncharted 4 developers having recently revealed that the game’s first week sales have exceeded 2.7 million copies, it’s a safe bet to make that a good portion of those sold will have fans attempting to complete all that the game has to offer. In due time, that number is likely to grow, especially with the potential for eventual discounts and Game of the Year Editions on the horizon.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is out now and is available exclusively for PlayStation 4.
