Elden Ring has been out for around two months now, and everyone knows that it's a rather difficult game. The action RPG is generally considered to be more "approachable" than its Souls-like predecessors thanks to its open world design — but as bedraggled editor Sammy Barker will tell you, From Software's latest does not shy away from kicking your arse.
It comes as a bit of a shock, then, to learn that 7.9 percent of Elden Ring players have unlocked the game's Platinum Trophy. At first glance, you might think that 7.9% doesn't seem all that impressive — but it's actually a really high percentage as far as Platinum Trophies go in blockbuster games.
For the sake of comparison, here are some Platinum Trophy stats for other, somewhat similar action titles, in descending order:
- Ghost of Tsushima - 13.6%
- Elden Ring - 7.9%
- Bloodborne - 6.5%
- Dark Souls III - 5.3%
- God of War (2018) - 4.7%
- Assassin's Creed Valhalla - 2.4%
Considering the size of Elden Ring — and the aforementioned difficulty — it's crazy to think that its Platinum Trophy percentage is higher than something like God of War. Granted, the latter has been available for a lot longer — but the difference is still surprising. Perhaps the Platinum rate has something to do with the fact that most of Elden Ring's Trophies are based on beating specific bosses rather than hunting down countless collectibles? It makes for an interesting study.
