Saints Row IV

Saints Row IV Trophies
Fourth and Forty
Spend over 40 hours in the Simulation.

This is self explanatory. When you are done with everything, you may only be on 20-30 hours. After this, you can keep playing or just leave the game running. You don't have to be actively moving. The game will occasionally show the progress towards it, and you need to rack up 2400 minutes. This carries over between playthroughs so if you prefer, you can start a new game to make up any remaining time. In addition, time spent in the DLCs counts towards this so you can move on to those instead of idling for this trophy.

In The Simulation?
Does this mean the whole game is just a dream? 0.o

Just like Saints Row III keep your PS3 on for 40 hours and you earn that trophy, Piece of cake.

@4: That's a boring way to do it. Play through the game naturally like a normal person

40 hours for a Saints Row game is not that long. Easy Gold c:

I rushed SR3 + all dlc, and I was done in 33 hours
(5 were looking for stag lol)

I wonder if this doesn't count in the first few missions and
the hub area since they are in the real world?

@9 It's still in there, along with an equally awesome/disturbing melee weapon. ;)

I had freaking 20 hours left on the clock when I was done with everything but the distance travelled in alien vehicles challenge. With DLC I guess you could reach 30 hours but 40? A bit stupid. But still, I like the name.

If you finish everything in the game and still have time left you can start a new game. The save game file shows a reset timer, but the timer in the Stats screen keeps the same time. It's 40 hours on the same profile.

I've played over 40 hours I checked when I saved my game it says 40:12 and the trophy still didn't pop up?! HELP

@ Savage064 - You have to spend 40 hours in the simulation. Time spent fighting on the Zin Ship, the first mission, and time fighting at the White House do not count. Just bang around in the simulation for another hour or 2, should get it.

@5: Playing through normally still leaves a ridiculous amount of time.

I'm currently flying circles for the last challenge, which will take up another 2h AFTER I already spent 1,5h and drove with the the majority of the game - which really takes the fun out of being able to fucking fly.
This means I deliberately chose to spend more time than I had to on getting to the various objectives, took my sweet time with the game itself causing havoc once in a while, looking for collectibles, ...
I also let the game idle already today for 2h for Switch Hitter, 2h for Back in the Day and some additional time while doing my household and work on PC.
And I still have SIX!!! (6) hours to go. - That's more than 10h of pure idling.

There is too much idiling in this trophy. This would have been a lot better if there was more content in the game.

i just got this trophy, and i'm aprox 80% through completion - i like this game - and have enjoyed it fully so far ^^

@20 actually, you can.

if you have a controller plugged in, the game wont pause.

and you can set up in the console settings to not have the console turn off after so many hours.

honestly, im only about 70-80% of the way through the game and have about 31 hours logged already.

i only have a few missions and challenges to mop up, plus the DLC.

if youre looking for an easy way to get the "distance traveled in an alien vehicle" challenge, play the UFO mayhem activity, or tank mayhem, youll travel lots and get it really quick.

I have completed the campaign. All side missions. Collected all audio logs and clusters. I have done most of the kill abilities (just need death from above and I am become death). thats all in 18 hours. Really enjoyed the game!

Got every trophy for the main game and DLC in about 28 hrs, just left the game running for 12 hrs for the 40 trophy. Kind of excessive this time around.

 Comment #31 by Selrahc

Same problem as you guys, got every other trophy, every challenge, every collectible at just under the 24 hours mark. Even if I played the game from start to finish again I couldn't be bothered to re-do all the collectibles and side missions and would probably finish with 8 more hours left on the clock. Leaving my PS3 on overnight in the hope I can run down 10-12 hours or so, will be wounded if I miss the platinum popping though haha.

This is my last Trophy until i get the Saints Row 4 Platinum Trophy. c:

i'm working on this and i was curious. the 40 hours has to be on the in game stat menu or is it counted when you see the save screen. like my save screen shows 32:30. so that means i'm 8 hours away from the trophy?

Waiting for this trophy to pop now so that I have another platinum and 100% in my collection. Only 5 hours to go.
