The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe Trophy Guide: How to Get the Platinum
The good news for those looking to get the Platinum in The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe is that there aren't very many to collect. The bad news is that several of them are quite obscure. In fact, the difficulty of the Trophies is all over the place; one of them is a total giveaway, while another requires you to perform a pseudo-speed run.
To start with, we'd urge you to play and explore The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe without worrying too much about Trophies. You will unlock at least two or three naturally, possibly more depending on how much you poke around. Trophies like Beat The Game, Welcome Back!, You Can't Jump, and Get Your First Trophy will come easily, while the rest are a little (or a lot) more involved.
Speed Run has you reaching the "true" ending as quickly as possible, which isn't too hard but does require you to know what you're doing. 8888888888888888 is similarly an easy Trophy that doesn't have an immediately obvious solution. Most of the rest have fairly self-explanatory descriptions, and that includes Super Go Outside — a ridiculous Trophy that requires you to not play the game at all for 10 years. You can wait the full decade if you're that patient, but there's a simple workaround to unlock it almost instantly (detailed below). As we said, there aren't many Trophies needed for this Platinum — they're just a bit unusual.
The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe Trophy Guide: Are There Any Difficulty Trophies?
Fortunately, no, there are no difficulty-related Trophies in The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe. The game features no difficulty settings at all, so naturally, you don't need to worry about playing on a higher level to nab the Platinum.
The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe Trophy Guide: Are There Any Missable Trophies?
There are no missable Trophies in The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe. All Trophies can be unlocked at any time, so there's no need to worry about missing out.
The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe Trophy Guide: All Trophies
There are 12 Trophies in The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe, including the Platinum. In this section of our Trophy guide, we will be going through each Trophy, revealing their names, descriptions, and some advice on how to unlock them all.
Excellent Job Following Directions
Platinum: Obtain all other trophies.
As always, the Platinum is reserved for when you have unlocked all the other Trophies in this list.
Get Your First Trophy
Gold: Awarded for getting any of the other trophies as your first.
This unusual Trophy is unlocked immediately after you pop one of the other Trophies in this list. It doesn't matter which one — you'll get this automatically after achieving your first one.
Beat The Game
Gold: Complete The Stanley Parable.
A little misleading, this one, as there are many endings in The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe. To unlock this Trophy, you need to reach the "True" ending, also known as the "Freedom" ending. You do this by obeying everything the Narrator says, ultimately leading you down to the Mind Control Facility and switching off the power.
Test Trophy Please Ignore
Gold: Test trophy description! Replace this!
This Trophy is impossible to unlock until later in the game. Eventually, one of the doors in the office will change, reading NEW CONTENT. Enter through this door and you'll go to a brand new area. When you are in the exhibition hall, you'll notice one of the attractions is a free Trophy. However, when you pull the lever on the machine, the Narrator explains it's not working yet. Don't worry about this.
Continue playing The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe as normal. Each time you boot up the game, you will notice the on-screen text that comes up before the main menu starts to grow strange. Eventually, it will tell you that you need to find it if you want to talk to it again. After playing through the "New Content", you will notice there is an Epilogue accessible from the main menu. Play through this. After doing so, you will be able to reach that exhibition hall again, and this time, the free Trophy machine will work, awarding you this Trophy.
Gold: Quit the game and then start it again.
As the description says, close down the game and fire it up again to unlock this Trophy. Easy peasy.
You Can't Jump
Gold: No seriously, we disabled it.
Another odd but easy Trophy. Attempt to jump several times by pushing the face buttons. After a handful of tries, the Trophy will pop.
Gold: Play The Stanley Parable for the entire duration of a Tuesday.
This is probably the Trophy that's hardest to get. As the description reads, you need to have The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe running for a full 24 hours on a Tuesday. From midnight to midnight, you must have the game open for the whole day.
We have attempted to force this Trophy by utilising the console's system clock, but no matter what we try, it seems there's no getting around this one. It appears you really do have to have the game running for an entire Tuesday.
The good news is you don't necessarily need to be playing the whole time. You can boot it up and leave Stanley idle in the office, meaning you can spend your day getting on with, you know, something productive or useful. If you do this, you'll just need to double check your console's power-saving settings to ensure the machine doesn't shut off part-way through your attempt.
This is a very simple Trophy despite how obscure the name and description are. Take the left door and go up the stairs to the boss' office. Behind his desk is a number keypad. Press 8 on the keypad continuously until you hear a voice that says "Eight." That's all you need to do.
Click on door 430 five times
Gold: Click on door 430 five times.
After exiting Stanley's office, the second door on the right is door 430. Face the door and press X (Interact) five times. Follow the rest of the Narrator's instructions and you'll get this Trophy.
Gold: Complete The Stanley Parable in under 4 minutes 22 seconds (not including load times)
This Trophy requires you to reach the "True" ending within the above timeframe. This is actually quite challenging, but entirely possible under the right circumstances.
After making your way through the boss' office enough times, the Narrator will open up the passageway without you needing to enter the code. This saves a lot of time. The second big time-saver is in the Mind Control Facility. As you approach the first button to turn on the lights in the large chamber, you can actually climb onto the chair, then the desk, then the railing. Carefully, drop onto the catwalk that's ascending from below to avoid waiting for the gates to open.
As long as you follow the above two steps and book it as fast as you can to the facility's OFF button, you should be able to nab this Trophy.
Settings World Champion
Gold: Set all settings sliders in the menu to all the available numbers.
This one's a little tedious, but it's easy enough. Pause the game and go to the Settings menu. For every option in the menu that has a number slider, go through and set the sliders to every possible number. In other words, go to each slider, move them all the way to the left, and then tap through each number in turn.
A couple of these will be hidden unless you enable their respective option. For example, turn on Subtitles and a slider will appear below. The same is true of Translation Labels. You'll also need to do the same on the Audio sliders.
If the Trophy refuses to pop, try changing the language and then going through all the sliders again. This is what worked for us.
Super Go Outside
Gold: Don't play The Stanley Parable for ten years.
This Trophy is obviously ridiculous, but fortunately, you don't actually have to wait a decade between play sessions to collect it. You can if you want, but there's really no need. If you'd like to earn the Trophy this side of 2030, here's what you need to do:
- Boot up The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe if it's not open already, play for a second, and then quit out and close down the game.
- Go to Settings > System > Date and Time > Set Date and Time, then select Set Manually. Set the date at least 10 years in the future from the current date, and press OK to confirm.
- Boot up The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe again and begin playing. If you've done it correctly, you will unlock this unusual Trophy straight away.
