Dead Island

Dead Island Trophies
How many days exactly?
Play Dead Island at least 28 days after starting it for the first time.


You might get this naturally, if the takes you longer than 28 days. Note: Even with the 1.04 patch installed, the 28 day timer seems to be glitched. The easiest way to get this though is to do as follows:

  1. Make sure you have the 1.04 patch installed.
  2. Load Dead Island and get to an autosave.
  3. Quit to the XMB.
  4. Go to "Settings" => "Date and Time Settings" and change the date so it's a month ahead.
  5. Load Dead Island and it should unlock on the main menu.

Terminator has some theories as to why this trophy sometimes glitches:

1: You need to play for 28 consecutive days.

2: All 28 days must be in the same month, not spread out over several.

3: It's a combination of the above. There's also the possibility that the DLC screws up the timer somehow but I can't prove it.

When this glitched on me I decided to play for an additional 3 days but it still didn't pop, nor did it after advancing the system clock 1 month. In the end I had to move the clock forward 2 or 3 months before the trophy actually popped. I also had to turn off the auto clock sync option and stay signed out of PSN for the clock trick to work.

Sounds like the one they got for Crysis 2, except not 6 months! 28 days later sounds cooler.

I guess it means start the game up at least 28 calender days after you first played it.

It means to play the at least after 28 days. Meaning, you can play it today... and not play it for 28 more days. On the 29th day, you can play and the trophy will pop.

nice easy way to get this. instead of waiting the 28 days, just change your date on the ps3 manually to 28 days after you started the game. then start the game, didnt even have to load my save data it popped up at the main screen.

Guys you don't have to not play the game to get the trophy, I've played this game nearly every day since i bought it, and i've just now turned it on and received the trophy. Plus my total time played is 27 hours. So you can play as much as you want, whenever you want, just play it 28 or more days since playing it for the first time.

Or just ignore that and do what runestone said.

Cuve8, all you have to do is have the game running on or after the 28th day. Doesn't matter what save files you have or anything.

does it have to be 28 days after you first play the game or can u do it any time cos i played it for 3 days straight before i noticed this trophy so i moved clock forward 28 days and didnt get it :(

@#21 To earn this trophy, you just play it for 28 days, with the game being started counting.

So, play it for 1 day, then you can do something, play this game on another random day, and repeat for 28 times.

You just need to play for 28 days, not 28 straight days!

You don't have to play it for 28 days. I played it once and started it up almost a year later and the trophy popped.

What worked for me was playing the game 28 days after the day I got my first trophy in this game. It didn't had to be in the same month.
I got the game and played for few minutes back in June 2014 then I got back to it in February 2015, I got my first trophy in February, today I set the date in console 28days after my first trophy day and voila! ;)
