FF7 Rebirth Platinum Trophy grind is a 200-hour marathon on PS5

Packing a massive open world and epic story, FF7 Rebirth has a lot to offer PS5 players, though the Platinum hunt will be far from easy.

Do you love earning the prestigious Platinum Trophy for every PS5 game you play? Well, you might regret that now that the Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth Trophies are out in the wild. Clocking in at a staggering 150GB, we already knew that FF7 Rebirth would be a massive game, though no one was prepared for a FF7 Rebirth Platinum Trophy grind that could take up to 200 hours to complete.

Boasting a sprawling open world and an unforgettable adventure, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will be a joy to play the first time through for many, and it looks certain that it will cement itself as one of the best PS5 games and best RPG games around. However, those dedicated to unlocking all the PS5 Trophies likely won’t be having quite so much fun with the new PS5 game. According to Trophy trackers PowerPyx, it will take around 150-200 hours to Platinum Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth – requiring the completion of 61 Trophies (54 Bronze, five Silver, one Gold, and the fated Platinum). In other words, around two or three times the length of the main game for the average player.

While it’s great news that there are no missable Trophies due to the Chapter Select feature letting you quickly jump back into key moments, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is just downright huge. Firstly, it will require at least two playthroughs as you need to beat the game on hard, which is only unlocked after beating the game on easy or normal difficulty. This alone will take you dozens of hours to complete. With the open-world game being packed with side quests, world intel, minigames and more to complete, there’s simply a lot to get through.

This touches on an important note with FF7 Rebirth’s Trophies and general scope. The tasks themselves generally aren’t too tricky – according to PowerPyx, the hardest achievement, Star Hotel, requires you to beat Brutal and Legendary Combat Situations – they’re just simply rather arduous. If you’re looking for a test of strength, you won’t be disappointed, but it’s clear it’s more a test of perseverance.

So, if you want FF7 Rebirth to remain on your list of best games, it’s probably a good idea to avoid the Platinum grind – or at least take your time to enjoy your first playthrough most of all. Outside of Cloud’s next adventure, there’s plenty more PS5 exclusives to enjoy right now, including the incredible Helldivers 2 and remarkably unique Pacific Drive – a car-based survival game with a supernatural twist.
