Introduction:

The quiz show game of multiple choice has a -New Edition- for the PlayStation 5. This updated version has a few new categories, more questions and a few small extra features but mostly plays and looks like Who Wants To Be A Millionaire (2020). Winning the million on the TV show has proven to be difficult and only done a handful of times. Luckily for you, in the videogame you have the most useful lifeline of them all: The pause button and Google.


Walkthrough:

Step 1: Normal Mode

You can knock out several trophies with a million dollar run on Normal Mode. Answer the first 10 questions with 1 second left, answer the next 4 as soon as possible, then you have enough banked time for the last question. Use pause and Google to help you and you will earn these trophies:

Step 2: Easy Mode and Cooperative Mode

Now that you've done the trophies for your last second and your quick answers, you can play through a few other modes. Feel free to remove the timer so you don't accidentally miss a question.

Step 3: Answering 1000 questions

With the mode specific trophies done you can now play in Quick Mode and turn off timers to avoid some of the presentation pieces of the game and focus mostly on questions and answers. I also recommend only using the minimum four categories so you are more likely to get repeat questions. Although you will have the luxury of Google helping you feel free to use your 50:50 and Switch a Question Lifelines as needed. Phone a Friend and Ask the Audience are not always reliable and Google serves the same purpose essentially. Grind out 1000 questions to 100% the trophy list.

11 trophies ( 3  )

  • Reach question 5 in normal mode

  • Reach question 10 in normal mode

  • Become the champion in normal mode

  • Become the champion in normal mode without using a lifeline

    There are 15 questions on your climb to the $1,000,000. You can select as many or as little as 4 categories. I would recommend picking just the minimum categories of topics you are knowledgable on.

    You can stack a few different trophies if you answer your first 10 questions with a second left, pressing cross.png to select your answer and cross.png again to confirm. This will earn you the Last minute trophy_bronze.png trophy. Next answer the next 4 as quickly as possible by pausing and researching the answer on Google. When you get to the Last Question you will have banked enough time for the Quick thinker trophy_silver.png trophy. Normally you can check your progress and use lifeline by hitting r1.png but you will want to avoid using lifelines for one of your million dollar wins on Normal Mode. 
  • Become the champion in easy mode

    Easy Mode eliminates the timer by default and features slightly easier questions. You can use your lifelines or Google to make your way through the Last Question.
  • Become the champion in cooperative mode.

    This trophy requires another PS5 controller in order to complete. You are free to turn the timer off and use your lifelines, along with using Google, of course. Both you and the other local player need to agree on the answer before you can proceed.
  • Answer 10 questions correctly at the very last second on the timer.

    You will want to let the timer drip down to 1 second before you lock in your final answer. Hitting cross.png initially will highlight the answer but you'll need to hit cross.png a second time to confirm your final answer and stop the timer.
  • Rack up 150 seconds on the timer.

    Answering your questions early will bank your time later for the million dollar question. Pause the game to save your timer and rack up extra time for the end.
 

Secret trophies

  • Answer more than 100 questions correctly

  • Answer more than 500 questions correctly

  • Answer more than 1000 questions correctly

    1000 Questions works out to winning the million dollars about 67 times. You might mess up a few times here and there so it may take a few extra times. To make this go quicker, you can play on Quick Mode and turn off the timer. This mode eliminates the banter between host and contestant and sticks mainly to questions and answers. You will also want to select the minimum 4 categories that you are knowledgable in. You will find the questions will start repeating which will speed up the grind.
