The fourth game in the “We Were Here” series, We Were Here Forever maintains the tone and crafty puzzle co-op elements that made the series so memorable to many players. This time around, however, things take a grim turn as a heavy choice can change the outcome in the end.

In this trophy guide, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about getting the platinum trophy for We Were Here Forever.

A headset is most definitely needed.

There aren’t any missable trophies in We Were Here Forever. But you will have to do this game twice with a friend in order to unlock all the trophies – either as the player that solves the puzzle or the one who decodes the clues.

Player A Trophies: From this point, we'll refer to the player who completes puzzles as Player A. The following are the trophies associated with them and what you need to do to unlock them.

The Foundation: Be the one to pick up the astrolabe piece after forging the item in Chapter 4.

Player B Trophies: From this point onward, we'll refer to the one who reads and works out the clues for Player A as Player B. The list below is the trophies associated with that. We'll also tell you how you can obtain them.

The final trio of trophies to talk about are the end-game ones. Specifically, One Must Remain, Evermore, and Forlorn. From what we can tell, it doesn’t matter if you’ve been playing as either Player A or Player B the entire time. All that matters is that one player leaves and the other stays.
