Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture: How to Trigger the Story for Completionist

Uncovering the story will require a bit of leg work.

Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is out and it has brought along a trophy list complete with one of those highly coveted Platinums. Of course, with exploration heavy games such as Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, obtaining every trophy isn’t exactly the easiest thing. Some will take a bit of thinking and others will require some searching.

One of the more challenging trophies is the Completionist trophy, which requires players to trigger every single piece of story in the game. For the most part, this isn’t too difficult. Follow the golden lights as they lead you from story point to story point and take in everything that is being shown to you. The hard part comes in searching for the side stuff.

Nothing is really hidden too well, but that doesn’t mean things aren’t easy to miss. You will need to click on every phone, radio, and television in the game since those also have a bit of story tied to them. Radios are easy to find since you’ll hear a series of numbers playing off of them. Just move until the sound gets louder, which will lead you right to it. Press “X” and listen to Kate as she provides more insight into the events surrounding the mysterious disappearances.

Phones, on the other hand, will ring. Follow the same steps you used to locate the radios and you’ll be just fine. Pick up the phone and listen to the other end to trigger these story points. If you hang up by mistake, don’t worry, as long as the call started, you’re good. If you’re really adamant about hearing everything, just press “X” to hear the call all over again.

TVs are a bit more difficult. Since they don’t make a sound, many players will probably think nothing of them. Whenever you walk inside of a house or building, check every counter for a television or computer monitor. Walk up to it and press “X” to see the observatory that seems to be at the center of Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture‘s troubles and hear some numbers.

Unfortunately, the game doesn’t let you know if you got everything (with the exception being the radios since they will trigger Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture‘s Radio Enthusiast trophy). So you’ll have to wait until completing the game to see if you got everything. Luckily, though, the game isn’t too long so have some fun with it in the meantime.
