Introduction:

Abzu is a game that takes you on an exploration of the sea. You will discover some of the most beautiful ocean environments and plenty of sea creatures you can interact with while making your way through this stunning game. There is a path that you will follow while making your way through this game but there is no main objective in this game. Like Journey, all the scenery that you have come to love while playing through Abzu game will eventually just come to a remarkable end.


Walkthrough:

Step 1: Play through the game while getting all collectibles
You should be able to get all of the trophies in a single playthrough, but you will unlock chapter select upon completing the game once. You should be able to get all of the collectibles if you are carefully looking everywhere for them (see Ecosystem, Zen Master and Collector for video guides).

There are moments in this game, usually at the end of chapters, where the pathway that you came from cannot be used anymore due to it closing behind you. If this happens than you will have to pick up anything you missed with chapter select. Any trophy requiring you to ride one of the sea creatures will be obtainable at the end of the game just in case you missed an opportunity earlier.


Step 2: Mop up
If by the time you have completed the game and you haven’t found all of the collectibles by then, then you will need to use the chapter select feature to find the remaining ones. Refer to the videos under Ecosystem, Zen Master and Collector if you need help finding the remaining collectibles.

Collectibles will autosave once you've picked them up, so there is no need to complete the chapter once you've picked up whatever collectible you're missing.

Reminder: Once you've completed a chapter you cannot return to the previous areas, as there will be doors that close behind you and other obstacles that will prevent you from returning to the previous areas. So make sure that you pay attention to the trophies that have a specific chapter related to them. I would suggest you use the collectible videos as to not accidentally miss a collectible and have to waste time chapter selecting through it.

12 trophies ( 4  )

  • Leap from the water.

    This trophy can be obtained at the very beginning of the game. All you need to do is swim down then hold the boost button and shoot up towards the top to breach the water. If you happen to miss your chance at getting this in the beginning of the game, there are quite a few areas that will allow you to go up to the surface and try at this trophy again.

  • Perform a flip while riding a creature.

    While you are riding a creature you will need to press to do a roll while on it. You will be able to obtain this in nearly any part of the game as there are many sea animals that will allow you to ride on them. Once you've completed the roll the trophy will pop.

  • Burst 15 fish schools in the jetstream.

    You can get this as early as the second jetstream. A jetstream is a fast water current that will pull you along through certain areas of the game. While going through the jetstreams just run into the schools of fish to burst through them. You will know that you have gone through them because the game will make musical noise and the school of fish will light up after you have gone through them. There will be multiple times throughout the game where you will have to go into a jetstream to make your way through the game so you should be able to burst through 15 schools of fish by the end of the game.

  • Witness predation while meditating.

    A meditation statue looks like a rock shaped in the form of a shark. To obtain this trophy you will need to find a meditation statue and meditate on it. Once you are meditating you will be watching the fish swim around. You will have to stay in meditation until a fish eats another fish in order to obtain this trophy. Look under the trophy Zen Master for more information on and locations of meditation statues.

  • Release fish from all the hidden pools.

    The hidden pools are located in chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6.

    There are a total of 20 hidden pools located in this game. Some of the pools are easy to find and some you will have to go diving deep in the ocean to find. When you get near one of the hidden pools interact with it by pressing the button in order to release the fish from the pool.

    Refer to the video below for more help on finding all of the hidden pools:

  • Find all the meditation statues.

    There are a total of 12 Meditation statues scattered throughout this game. These statues aren’t particularly hard to find but to find some of them you may have to explore the areas a little in order to find them. A meditation statue looks like a rock shaped in the form of a shark. Once you’ve found one of them go up to it and click in order to interact with it. All you need to do is interact with it and get off of it in order to make it count. You can keep track of these by pausing the game and going to "meditate" to see how many meditation statues you have found.

    Refer to the video below for more help on finding all of the meditation statues:

  • Complete the adventure.

    Story related and cannot be missed.  This trophy will be obtained during the credits.

  • Add all secret shells to your collection.

    The secret shells are found in chapter 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 and one in the credits

    There are a total of 19 secret shells that can be found scattered throughout the game. To find these you will need to carefully explore each and every area that you come across. The secret shells will look like a white glowing seashell. It’s fairly big also so if you happen to run across one of them you will notice it. Once you’ve found one of the seashells you will need to press in order to interact with it and obtain it. After you have collected all of the seashells you will get a new diving suit, but you will have to find a certain door located at various points throughout the game that tracks the shells that you have found and interact with it in order to obtain it.

    Refer to the video below for more help on finding all of the secret shells:

 

Secret trophies

  • Discover those that lurk in the abyss.

    This trophy can be obtained in Chapters 4 or 7

    This trophy requires you to discover a kraken. During your playthrough of the game you will come across a few of these. All you have to do is ride one of them so that it registers and your trophy will pop afterwards. You can also find them at the end of the game while you're swimming with the Great White Shark.

  • Ride the Great White Shark.

    This trophy is obtained in Chapter 7.

    This will be obtained near the end of the game. You will visit the blue area for the fifth time and have to activate an orb that will be in the center of the room rather some ways away from you as they have been previously. After activating the orb, your body will regenerate and you will start swimming to a new area of the game. Once you’re able to move your character again you will be swimming with the Great White Shark. All you will need to do is go near it and ride it. The trophy will pop shortly after.

  • Breach the water on the back of a blue whale.

    This trophy is obtained during Chapter 7.

    Near the end of the game you will be restoring the ocean by destroying triangles that will electrocute you if you get too close to them. Once you’ve gone through all of them you will make your way out to an open area. In this new area directly ahead of you there will be a bigger triangle that you will need to enter to continue to the end of the game. Don’t go into it and just swim down instead, and you will see the blue whales below. Grab onto one of them and ride it to the surface to breach the water. You will see a short animation while breaching the water and you will obtain your trophy.

  • Discover the polar region.

    This trophy is obtained during Chapter 7.

    This trophy will be obtained near the end of the game at the area where you are able to ride the blue whales. Once you get to this area, turn left and you will see a little piece of ice. Swim over towards it and climb on top of the piece of ice. Collect the secret shell on the ice and your trophy will unlock.

    Refer to the video below for the location of the polar region:
