Trophy hunters, rejoice- Insomniac’s upcoming gorgeous-looking action platforming Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is going to be a relatively easy Platinum to add to your collection. Of late, Insomniac’s games have had pretty easy Platinums to snag, which was true in both Marvel’s Spider-Man and Miles Morales, and that’s going to be the case in Rift Apart as well.

That’s according to game director Mike Daly, who, in a recent interview with IGN India, said that Rift Apart has “pretty permissive” Trophy design, and that the game’s Platinum Trophy can be achieved in a single playthrough, if you engage with it thoroughly. “I can say our Trophy design for this game is again, pretty permissive,” Daly said. “You can achieve it on one playthrough though, you need to be pretty thorough in how you approach the game. So if you’ve explored the nooks and crannies, if you’ve engaged with the upgrade systems, then you can get it without an inordinate amount of time invested. I know that this sort of breaks with some of the games of the distant past where we always wanted some crazy stretch trophy that had you doing a bunch of work.

“If you are the type of player who just really embraces the game and loves it, we are going to make it possible to get the Platinum without wasting your time.”

If you’re looking for some more challenging goals to chase though, Daly says Rift Apart also has a challenge mode, similar to previous Ratchet games, which is essentially like a New Game Plus option, in addition to higher difficulty options that “have a pretty high skill ceiling.”

“Now we know that some players really want to go much further than that, and much deeper into the game,” Daly said. “And so, as with past Ratchet games, we’ve got a challenge mode that lets you start from the beginning of the story again, but with your complete leveled up hero and arsenal, and a handful of gadgets.”

“And so if you really want to play the game, challenge mode is for you more so than the Platinum Trophy,” he added. “It basically lets you play a much more steeper progression curve over the course of the game. And we also offer a wide variety of difficulty settings. So as the hardcore player, I think you are going to get a lot of satisfaction out of the hardest difficulty settings, which have a pretty high skill ceiling.”

Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is out exclusively for the PS5 on June 11.
