Free trial and trophies

8 posts in this topic

As i understand it, you cannot unlock trophies during f2p. Will they unlock once i go full version? I will assume that it works similar to auto popping. I saw someone say it is tied to in game achievements so any 1 activity towards a completely in game achievement will pop the trophy. Can anyone confirm?

As I understand the PS4 trial never had allowed trophy to pop without a subscription though you can work/grind towards said trophy, like say 1000fates etc. When you subscribe you just need to do 1 more fate. This applies every other trophies that require a certain amount.

Now for PS5 trial, Im not too sure, I have only had seen 1 account say trophy will pop on the trial. But I wouldn't believe a thing that account says, though its possible its someone's alt.

On PS5 you can definitely unlock trophies via the trial. I did not start paying a sub until September last year, and got my first trophy the previous May. You can’t plat it, since some trophies are locked behind expansion content, but the rest should unlock no problem.

I thinks it's pretty shitty that you can get trophies for this trial game on the PS5 but not the PS4. Unfair, in my eyes. 😑

Yeah, it's annoying. I started the game yesterday, but I might wait a while before buying the subscription (if I ever do). There's way more available I've heard than in the past with the free trial, but not trophies on the PS4.

I mean while it's shitty, it's not like you can progress far in the PS5 version with the trial, only up to HW, and Free Trial accounts are quite limited in how they can even play content, I don't think they can even join Party Finder or make use of the marketboard/sell items via the marketboard? So, most end up having to buy the game either way if they want the full 100%, the platinum isn't even possible without buying the full game due to there being Stormblood/Shadowbringer expansions being included in the base list for some trophies.

I would argue the opposite. Someone can try out the PS4 version without the fear of having a super grindy plat that will take months to finish on their profile if they end up not liking the game. While anyone who tries the PS5 version will get trophies for a game they'll have no way of finishing unless they buy it and grind for months. So I'd argue it's shitty that they let trophies pop as a way to try and get people to buy the game, rather than let them try it for free without any pressure to buy.
