Batman: Arkham Origins Trophy Guide

November 4, 2013Written by Richard Duflo


Welcome to PlayStation LifeStyle’s trophy guide for Batman: Arkham Origins! If you’ve played any of the Arkham games before then you should know what to expect from this trophy list. If not, most of the trophies are collection and challenge based. Beside the new permadeath mode, everything here single player wise should be fairly easy to get. Whether you’re new to the series or not, there is one thing that will be new to everyone, multiplayer. Multiplayer has been introduced to the series and brings what most trophy hunters do not like,  online trophies. The online trophies can be a little hard to earn playing with random people, but the online trophies in this game can be obtained (boosted) in private matches with friends. Also, a quick thanks to PSN user cody1124 for providing some helpful tips to this guide!

Spoiler Alert: There are few spoilers within the guide. If you are avoiding spoilers, it’s recommended that you complete the game before reading any further.
