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.

Safe House trophy popped for me a day after I got the last safe house. Last one was in Old Town and two friends were in my game. I got the last safe house with no trophy so guessed mine was screwed like so many others. Was playing the next day alone and finishing up all the challenges in the Slums and headed to Old Town to do those. I'd gone to the tower and clicked the poster. When Old Town loaded, I got the Safe House trophy.

New Image for "The Whole Story"

It was at 0.0% and now it seems someone has found a way, unless it was one of these Devs to test out the fix before sending it out for us. Otherwise someone hacked it or found a way.

For Those Wondering Why "The Whole Story" Isn't Popping

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Yuhp6WDiP4

 

Some Information I Found

Couple sites I have came across lately are saying the Challenges are "side quests" too. I don't know how true this is since once you beat a Chalenge it goes under the category Challenges even after you have beaten them. So I just wanted to state this since a few sites do say Challenges is "included" for The Whole Story.

the side quest one for me has been at 0.1% since the first time i checked. but anyways, I encountered several glitches along my way,   The ones that include trophies are its all in the writing, the QZ one, saving survivors from Rais, safezones,  and ofcourse the side quests. t I was able to find work arounds for all but the side quests.

 

Picking up additional notes on a second game can get you the collectibls trophy, its weird how it works, its a different number for everyone.  and even if you have left 1 collectible on your first game, and get other ones then that on a new game(making it so one has never been picked up) it will still pop

 

On that second game(that at the clinic through advanced options) doing the QZ's,  first the 3 in old town,  and then the stuffed turtle in the slums.  I have foudn alot who got it to pop from that, or continueing to do them all and getting them in a single session. starting at the clinicspeeds things up since you are already far enough to be able to just go straight and do them.

 

Saving survivors will pop up eventually if you just keep saving them,  and doing them in a second game adds to the total.   Mine popped at 20.  My guess is the trophy is looking at actual encounters, while the stats page lists the actual survivors (since some encounters have 2 hostages on the ground)

 

my safe zones just popped up eventually as i was playing and didnt really notice, i figured i just had to unlock certain ones in the story first.  but i got it a while after clearing all the ones on the map, and i unlocked safezones through the story after i had the trophy, so something messed up lol

I saw it .1% since I got the game pretty much. Which was like 2 days after it came out. I think it was mostly a dev though....or someone just got incredibly lucky...

 

Also, that video you linked. I left a comment on it when it came out. The guy said, "Challenges aren't required and neither are quarantine zones. The confusion is that challenges appear in the quest tab" - PS4Trophies

I already voted on the poll, but just to add a little to the discussion, I got a few glitched trophies (PlayStation 4, US digital):

 

- The Whole Story
- This is Harraaaaan! (kicked at least 300 zombies)
- Now It's Safe
- Trespassing
 
As you can see on the screenshot, my captured safe zones and quarantines are "zero", even thou I did them all (quarantines are completed on the quest log). P.S.: The screenshot was taken around 70% of the story completed (and it is still zero until this day). I did every quest and side quest in single-player mode, altough I jumped on a few coop games from my friends to help out.

97% Here also =S

You have to complete all the story missions, side missions, quarantine zones and challenges to get 100%, some side quests don't have marks on the map, an example would be Dahlia's questline, you have to use her potion and then talk to her to activate a mission afterwards, I had 100% overall completion but still couldn't get the trophy.

I don't know, if it was the last patch(XboxOne), but yesterday I logged in with an alt, to grab some items from the scouts, and as soon as I logged in, the achievement "The Whole Story" popped.

Oh look at that, the changelog for the new patch says they already fixed the unlocking of "The Whole Story" trophy but in reality it's still glitched.

Basically for Techland, fixed=glitched/glitchy.

All fence traps have dissapeared from my game entirely.

Im on ng+ and have maxed out all my levels.

My fence traps and car bombs have dissapeared from the game.

Also rendering the trophy requiring you to kill enemies with the fence trap

Impossible to unlock.

I made a new game, an afted you activate the car bombs fof the first time. When you complete the mission it al reverts and goes back to not working.. ie; fence traps and car bombs dissapeared

 

As well as trespassing and its all I the writing are also broken trophys on my copy as I have even completdd the free Dlc quarantine zones along with the originals. With still no trophy progression

I have completed all challenges and all side quests got 100% completion and still no trophy

And to top it off

The Last of Us easter egg is broke

The clicker will NOT drop the clicker blueprint. Just cigarettes and $34.

Or the clicker will spawn as a normal zombie.

OR the clicker wount spawn at all

Good thing I backed up my save that I had on a USB that had one side mission left on it. Moved it onto my PS4 and the second I talked to Dahlia the trophy popped for The Whole Story and the platinum trophy We'll Talk About It Next Time I See You.

There's 16 safe zones you only have to get the red ones if you start a NG+ but the chupacabra isn't working, since I just tried again starting at extraction getting them all and it didn't work again...

Hello I joined the forum to further address the issue of the "Trespassing" trophy. I've completed the task required numerous times on and offline. Started QZs in the slums and old town, even went the order PowerPyx went in the vid. I've tried the possible "workarounds" suggested on other forums as well countless times completing all Quarantine zones without resting, saving, or even dying. Even started a new game from scratch with updated version at the time. Still no trophy. My file is currently a completed New Game+ file with version 1.04. All I need for the last trophy is the QZs yet cannot get it to work. Even attempted a new save pre patch as well as hoping the DLC will unlock it with the current versions. Again no luck.

 

I have voted on the poll. I'm playing on PS4 NA disc version. Also would like to thank those addressing the issues as well as the fix for "The Whole Stoy" trophy from Techland. I really enjoy this game! Thank you

 

EDIT: Also would like to add that each QZ IS under my list of completed challenges. And on another note even, on new games, the biohazard symbols to mark the QZs don't always appear on the map upon discovering the first. For example, if a symbol does appear then you will see the others when you find the rest. From experience the one that usually makes them appear is underground tunnel.
