If you are coming from Darksiders I & II, you may be disappointed in the fact that the game has taken more of a "Dark Souls' approach with bosses and collectibles. Items can be found all over the world on dead angels and demons and the game has souls, similar to Dark Souls as well. You use souls to level up Health, Damage, or Arcane, as well as purchase artifacts, enhancements and consumables from our old pal Vulgrim. Souls are plentiful in this game and providing you don't purchase consumables recklessly, you can get every trophy in one playthrough. Be warned, Apocalyptic difficulty is no joke and easily the hardest in the entire series. For this reason, I recommend playing two playthroughs so you aren’t banging your head against the wall the entire time. Collectible counts also carry through multiple playthroughs so doing two playthroughs can save you time scouring the earth for the 1-2 humans or artifacts you missed. You will also save a lot of time on the most time-consuming trophy: Beast Mode, by playing on Easy first. See the steps below for more information. For those of you who purchased the game near release date, there have been multiple patches since then that have made the game much easier. A classic combat mode was added, which makes the game feel more like the original two. Enhancements were buffed, more checkpoints were added and bosses were toned down a bit. I played the game on the most recent patch (1.05) so I do not have any information on how bad the game was before. Glitched Trophies Warning While I did not personally have any issues unlocking any of the trophies, there have been multiple reports of many different trophies not unlocking for some players. If you are worried that this may happen to you, feel free to make multiple backups to the cloud, especially before unlocking end-game trophies such as Humanitarian, Balance in all Things, Death Incarnate or Big Spender. Walkthrough Step 1: Complete the game on easy while saving all consumable souls, saving all humans and collecting all artifacts. As stated above, you can go directly to Apocalyptic mode if you’re a madman but this method will cut down on your grinding significantly. The reason is Beast Mode is one hell of a grind and you will not get it during a single playthrough (or even five playthroughs) without grinding it out. The absolute easiest method is to play on Easy/Balanced difficulty and save all of your Lurcher clumps/crystals. These are items looted off the ground while exploring and give souls once consumed. If you save all these until near the end of the game, you can knock out the two most grindy trophies with ease. Make sure to back up your save before consuming these Lurcher clumps so you can earn Beast Mode, Soul Reaper & Big Spender all in the same playthrough. See these trophy descriptions for more information. Simply continue through the story, being very thorough in your exploration and using collectible guides where needed and you can nab every trophy but two in one go. Keep in mind that there are three missable trophies. Slight spoilers below: [spoiler=Drksdrs1][*]Partway through the fight with Lust, Usiel will be swayed to join the fight and make it 2 on 1. Simply finish off Lust without killing Usiel to earn For Whom the Bell Tolls. [*]During your visit to the Scar, you can locate Abraxis hiding in a tower off the beaten path. The closest fast travel point is called The Lowlands under Scar. From here, backtrack down the Stasis Hollow hole you climbed up before and roll back across the wall with the Force Hollow. After landing, you'll be able see a tornado you can boost up with Lightning Hollow. Follow the path and head up the elevator to meet Abraxis for the Demon Meddler trophy. Make sure you kill Abraxis and spare the Lord of Hollows for the next missable trophy. This must be done before defeating Pride, as Abraxis disappears after that, voiding you of the two missable trophies. [*]After killing Abraxis, you can fast travel to the Lord of Hollows’ Chamber and choose to spare him. This will give you the A Parting Gift trophy and an alternate ending to the story. This must be done before the Pride fight as well, or you will not be able to obtain the gift. Killing the Lord of Hollows at any time will also void this trophy. In this step, you will potentially earn: Enhance! Can you restore the Balance?

Darksiders III received patch 1.08 in April 2019 for Armageddon Mode, a free NG+ mode that allows you to carry over stats and upgrades. Later in April, patch 1.09 was released, which allows you to choose your difficulty at the beginning of Armageddon Mode. This now allows you to obtain Death Incarnate much easier, because you do not have to start over from level 1! After defeating the final boss, chose yes to go to Armageddon Mode and set the difficulty to Apocalyptic. You can also use this playthrough to clean up any miscellaneous trophies you did not earn in playthrough 1. In this step, you will potentially earn: Death Incarnate BFA Edited May 11, 2020 by AerisFlowerGirl Added banners Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
