Welcome to Redout, a futuristic anti-gravity racing game inspired by WipEout. Set in the 2500s, you'll take part in a range of events in the SRRL, piloting ships that can eventually reach over 1,000 miles per hour. You'll race through the Wilds of Alaska, the remnants of what was the Italian coast and even around the moons of Jupiter. You can also go to Mars if you buy the DLC, but there aren't any trophies for the DLC and they don't offer anything to help you with the platinum.
While there is a lot of content in Redout in terms of tracks, events and an online mode, the trophies are relatively straightforward. There's a comprehensive guide to the game on Steam from Majora and ZephTheAwesome which explains pretty much everything about game modes, tracks, ships and controls, so check that out if you need any advanced gameplay tips.
I will quickly mention something important though. In addition to the standard steering, controls ship pitch and strafing. When you corner, you'll need to get used to using both sticks to steer. Using the right stick will add just an extra bit of maneuverability, and save you from losing speed from hitting the walls or just not taking the right line. You'll also have to move the right stick up and down to control the pitch of your ship's nose, since it can drag along the ground on hills or loops, slowing you down and damagining you.
The game will explain these controls during the first Career event, but it's worth keeping in mind for your while playthrough. One other tip for winning races is similar to WipEout games, where it's often much easier to beat the AI if you get an early lead. If you're struggling with races even on Rookie difficulty, try getting into first place as soon as possible. Use your boost to get there, and stay there. You will find staying ahead of the AI much easier than trying to catch them, even in the same conditions.
You'll have to buy a Class I ship before you enter any events. While each ship has different performance characteristics, you can earn gold in each event with any of them. My first ship was the ESA-AGR Vanguard, as it had the highest speed and handling stats.
As you finish events you unlock money and XP, which will increase your pilot level, eventually unlocking more events. You'll need to buy one Class II and one Class III ship in order to complete enough events for Pile Up Trophies , and you'll eventually have to buy a Class IV ship to complete the final career event for Enlightened .
All of the game's trophies can be earned on the Rookie difficulty setting. You can change this from the Options menu.
After this step and working your way up to the final event, you will have earned these trophies:
Trick Up Your Sleeve
Natural Born Winner
Faster Than Ever
On A Roll
Shiny Shiny Gold
Pile Up Trophies
You might have earned some of these trophies while playing the game, but if there are any missing then now is the time to clean them up. After this step you will have unlocked these trophies:
Better Than Ever
