Godfall is a looter slasher and one of the first PS5 games. You need a constant online connection to play it, however you can play all of it solo and don't need PS+ if playing solo. If you don't know what is a looter slasher it simply means that it's a slasher with a lot of loot to collect to help getting the perfect build. There are no microtransactions though so if you want a specific build, you'll have no other choice but farming the game. The difficulty and time estimate for the platinum are heavily tied to that. If you're extremely good and lucky, you could get the platinum in about 30 hours but truthfully you're looking at the very least at 50 hours to get a decent level/build in order to beat the tower of trials. The more you farm, the better your build will be which will make things a bit easier. There is also the possibility of playing coop with 2 other friends, I say friends as the game doesn't offer any sort of matchmaking. Playing with 2 other experienced players may make things a lot easier as well so this is a bit difficult to estimate the difficulty and time needed to get the platinum because of this. There is also the luck factor when it comes to the tower as you'll get boons and banes that can make it easier or harder depending on what you get and also you will not always face the same enemies. Anyways, everything is doable solo and with the correct build even the tower of trials is doable solo.
Step 1: Complete the story while working on combat/weapon related trophies
The first step will be to familiarize yourself with the game and the different weapons, etc. While working on beating the story, you should also work on the combat/weapon related trophies. Do them one after the other until they pop but don't worry if you don't get them all before finishing the story, as it's only the beginning of the game. Also Don't worry about killing specific enemies, as you'll have all sorts of enemies during the Dreamstones/Tower. The enemies/bosses shouldn't cause you much trouble assuming you always have the recommended level during the story. There are a lot of checkpoints and the enemies usually don't heal up when you die. Even the bosses have checkpoints.

Step 2: Farm Dreamstones until you're Level 50 + finish the combat/weapon related trophies
Now that you're done with the story, the true game (grind) will start here. After beating the last boss, you'll unlock Dreamstones so play these and farm a bit while finishing your combat/weapon related trophies until you reach Level 50. There is no good reason to look for a specific build before being level 50 as the items you'll get will be at lower level so focus on reaching Level 50 first.
Trophies earned during this step (if not, don't worry too much as you'll get more opportunity during the Tower):
Salt the Earth
Shatter the Bastions
End the Deep Ones
Pierce the Heavens
Punish the Traitors
Step 3: Farm Dreamstones to get a good build
Now that you reached Level 50, it's time to work on your build. There are a lot of different weapons/accessories and an in infinite possible combination so it is difficult to tell you exactly what you need. It all depends on your favorite playstyle and which weapons you're confortable with. Each weapon/accessory on your build will have different capacities so it's up to you to to get the best build that suits you.
You can get a lot of loot farming Dreamstones. As you might have noticed already you start the Dreamstone with 50/100 Stability and you can earn both Stability and Lucidity when completing hunt missions. Your goal is to rank up as many Lucidity as possible before your Stability reaches 0, because Lucidity is used to buy better rewards, each round you will lose a certain amount of Stability so it's on you to plan correctly to make the Dreamstone last longer. When reaching 0 you have no choice but to face the final boss. There are also Explosive Dreamstones that you earn when completing normal Dreamstones and these ones offer some better loot so make sure to play them too.
You can also farm the Ascendant Tower of Trials as you can get unique weapons if you prefer and you'll also have an idea of how and what you need to improve in order to reach Trial 20. Also after reaching Level 50, you will unlock the Ascension levels, which will unlock more capacities for your character. It takes a very long time to level up all of this but it's a possibility if you want to make your character more OP.
Step 4: Ascendant Tower of Trials
Finally now that you have the perfect build it's time to beat this tower. Your objective is to reach Trial 20 (out of 30), without dying more than 2 times. You will face all kind of enemies and they will start at Level 50 but around the trial 6 or so they'll be at Level 60+ so you better be ready before trying this. See Ascendant for more info on how the Tower works.
