Question

Dear Techland,

 

several trophies (PS4) and achievements (Xbox One) are glitched. I have compiled a list down below. There are also complaints about this on other trophy and achievement forums.

http://psnprofiles.com/forums/topic/23936-trespassing-trophy-issue/

 

The glitches appear to be completely random. The trophies unlock for some people, but not for others. I have asked around and looked at forum posts and this happens on both the digital and the disc version (EU and USA). I also asked people whether they touched co-op or not. It doesn't seem to make any difference. A friend of mine did everything in single player without ever activating the online mode and has some trophy glitches too (but he got the trophy for all text collectibles).

 

The saddest part of all, however, is that the platinum trophy (or 1000 Gamerscore) is currently unobtainable (*Patch 1.02 -- Feb 02, 2015) because the side quest trophy does not unlock for anyone.

 

 

It's All In the Writing
Find all text collectibles
>Glitched for 90% of players. Almost nobody - me included - got this trophy after finding the 67 text collectibles in the game (34 notes, 17 Battle Journals, 16 Voice Mails). Others got it just fine. I tested it with some old save game backups and collected the last couple of things again, but no trophy every time. It doesn't seem to matter what collectible you pick last. One time I picked up a note last, another time a voice mail. No trophy.

Trespassing
Complete all Quarantine Zones
>Glitched for 75% of players. A lot of complaints about this one too. Doesn't unlock for most people, others get it just fine (worked for me, did all of them solo).

Now It's Safe
Capture all Safe Zones
>Glitched for 30% of players. For most people this works fine, but there are a number of reports that this doesn't unlock.

Homo Homini Lupus Est
Save 15 survivors from Rais's men
>Glitched for 90% of players. But most of them got it after freeing a couple more men (21 or so in total). So this one can unlock, it just doesn't unlock at 15 for anyone.

 

This is Harraaaaan!
Kill 100 enemies by kicking them off the rooftops/cliffs.

>Not completely sure about this one. It seems to unlock eventually, but for some people doesn't unlock after 100. If you keep kicking more zombies off rooftops/cliffs it should unlock eventually.

 

Pheidippides
Run (move or sprint) at least 42.195 m

>Glitched for 10% of players, but it should unlock eventually. There are players who have 50km+ in their statistics, but haven't earned the trophy yet.

The Whole Story
Finish all side quests.
>Glitched for 100% of players. Currently unobtainable. Because of this the platinum trophy (or 1000 Gamerscore) is not possible at this time. There are several people who have 100% in-game completion, but no trophy popped.

 

 

 

Please fix these issues as soon as possible and let us know if there are any workarounds for this. You fixed the "There and Back Again" trophy in the first Dead Island with patch 1.04, so I am sure you guys can figure this out too :)

 

 

 

If you are one of the unlucky ones with a glitched trophy / achievement, please leave a post in this thread and participate in the poll above. The more feedback we have, the easier it will be for the developers to locate the problem and the sooner we may get a patch for this.

I didn't get safehouse trophy after unlocking all the red ones on the maps, decided to play NG+ and played all the story till I unlocked the old town, now I unlocked all the safe houses in the slums before going to the old town .......... I unlocked 2 in the old town then the trophy popped?

I have all the collectibles required but the trophy never popped.

I have played ALL available side missions and the trophy never popped, did all side missions on first play through and again on NG+, the trophy description says complete all side missions but does that include challenges? There is a seperatee trophy for completing a certain amount of challenges so I assume its just side quests?

I am royally pissed with these trophy glitches, I should only need one more trophy for the platinum BUT now I have to start a fresh game to get the collectable trophy! I hope Techland fix The Whole Story trophy so you can get it by replaying a chapter and doing any side mission OR doing a mission in CO-OP?

If you have 67/67 collectibles, start a new save in a new slot, and collect 5-10 more.  The trophy has popped after doing this for multiple people.

 

The side quest trophy is completely broken and no work around is known at this time.  We'll be waiting for a patch for that one.

The Polyamory achievement is definitely glitched!

 

I also have a problem with:

 

It's all in the Writing (Stuck at 94% although I've collected every single collectible)

The Whole Story (Stuck at 90%, "Kidney Punch" and "Bring Me the Brains of Usain Bolter" can't be started)

Tresspassing (Stuck at 75% although I've completed all the Quarantine Zones)

 

Also, a friend of mine lost all of his skills, blueprints and inventory items after a 3 player co-op session.

 

Playing on the Xbox One btw. (Digital EU)

@PowerPyx, Someone found a new workaround for the text collectibles trophy.

They said they got the trophy just by starting a "new game" (not NG+) on a "new slot" and collected some collectibles then the trophy popped out for them, I'm gonna try that out now.

 

 

EDIT: It worked for me.

I have 66/67 collectibles on my 1st save slot.

Just got the trophy when I collected 4 collectibles on my 2nd save slot (New Game, not NG+).

I managed to unlock "Tresspassing" and "It's all in the Writing" by starting a new save file (New Game, NOT New Game+), completing 3 additional quarantine Zones and picking up 4 additional collectibles.

 

Still have  a problem with "The Whole Story" and "Polyamory" though.

The poll is missing Disc EU version. I'm on PS4 Polish disc version. Safe zones ans quarantine unlocked fine, the 15 survivors unlocked at about 20-21 mark. No trophy for all side quests on patch 1.01 and 1.02, tried to go back to 1.00 - game crashes or save file not supported.

I jumped off the top of the bridge at night and didn't get the achievement. And I mean from on top of the pylon. I did find the other thing there, but no achievement for doing it. (Trying not to spoil in case anyone doesn't know.)

 

On XBox One.

Do not jump from the top top. I did that and it never popped. Jump from where all the zombies are where the cars are hanging off. It should pop then. Did for me when I tried that.

I got myself a US hardcopy and did not realize my trophies were glitched untill the last mission of the game.

The Whole Story, Now It's Safe and Trespassing trophies are glitched and with seeing those, now I am not so reluctant to try It's All In the Writing after all. Those are only trophies I need to obtain along with Mount Everest. And did I mention, I am stuck at Survival Lv. 24 with a thousand XP shy?

 

Edit: Tried It's All In the Writing but as I thought, this one glitched out as well.

It's all in the writing and the whole story are the last two trophies I need for platinum. I did my own extensive testing for the whole story where when I did it first I had played coop in other games so to be sure I went through it again on New Game Plus in single player got 100% completion again no trophy. Nothing for collectibles either. 82 hours in the game hope it's patched soon!

i am robbed out of safe house and the zone trophy along with the side quest trophy. my game as of yesterday says 100%

 

the safe houses look like 98% when i look at achievements.

quartine zone i did have issues with i started dragon hotel and 5 mins in someone joined and it said bam done. but it still said i finished it got exp and everything.

 

 

so when is this problem being fixed. if these things didnt work the game was not ready for release and should have been left in devlopment. as i wasted time doing side quest and safe houses and zones i didnt have to do. just for achievement. i could have beat the game much much faster then 7 days.

 

and be a zombie has NO achievements  = waste of time since most people just drop out or you dont connect as they quickly go to bed.

 

i think i will be skipping the dlc on this game. if its as glitch at launch of dlc as the game was then i dont wanna get dlc and wait for patch to fix dlc lol

 

i probably will skip this devlopers games from this point on.

After reading this topic, I'm thankful I didn't waste my time playing through this game to it's completion.  I refuse to continue playing this game in it's current broken state.   You should probably add the Polyamory trophy to that list.  I  was playing in a full group of 4 people and we did way over 7 quests and no trophy pop for any of us.  I've also seen people report the same issue. 

 

None of these trophy bugs really surprise me.  The fact that they've let the same exact duping glitch pass through into their game 3 times in a row now leads me to believe these developers just don't give a chupacabra about quality control.   Selling broken products for £55.. you just had to add that extra £5er on the end didn't you?   I read on the title screen that "we poured our hearts and souls into this game" or something of that manner, it doesn't look like it..

I have 5 glitched trophies, and it sucks.  Safe zones, this is haraaaan, side quests, collectables, and rais' men are all glitched.  Haven't tried any of the online/co-op stuff.  Not sure if I want to until I know if these trophies will get fixed.  

 

Also, I have a question.  Does this kind of stuff usually get patched within a timely manner?  Like with previous games with glitched trophies did they even get patched at all?  I don't have much exp. with glitched trophies, so I didn't know if any of you guys could shed some light on this.

Saved 20+ survivors from both zombies and Rais men. It seems the count didn't start until I got to Old Town though.

 

in personal statistics, quarantine zones say 0, but I have gotten the achievement.

 

Safe zones completed, no achievement

 

All side quests done, no achievement.

 

Finished all collectibles in Slums. Have yet to finish Old Town collectibles.
