Want to have the Platinum trophy in The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe? Just wait for 10 years

In case anyone is unable to remember this game, The Stanley Parable is a 2013 standalone interactive title, developed by Davey Wreden and William Pugh. It includes various themes like making choices, sharing the relationship between a creator and player, and predestination.

The story of this title sees the player taking on the role of silent protagonist named Stanley. The entire narration is voiced by British actor Kevan Brighting. As the plot makes further progression, the player faces challenging situations and pathways. Interestingly, they can even choose their own fate by contradicting the narrator’s directions. But disobeying him, will then result into shaping the main game story.

While this weird yet creatively stunning game was already good, the enhanced Ultra Deluxe expansion makes it even more appealing. There are fresh choices and tons of new secrets to uncover.

But it seems like all this will take a decade for the players of PlayStation to eventually unearth. Especially if they are looking to get their hands at the Platinum trophy in The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe.

As is already known, this specific trophy is the last in any PS game, finding which indicates that a player has achieved 100 percent completion status. While many great games do require a good chunk of time for the fans to receive this accomplishment, The Stanley Parable’s latest expansion seriously takes things on another level.

Simply put, players don’t have to do anything for the next ten years. Then, that the game will grant them the chance to get the Platinum or in other words, the “Super Go Outside” trophy. Which means if someone opens the title after five years from now, they will have to wait for another ten years then, just to grab the desired trophy.
