There are 35 achievements within A Plague Tale. In order to earn some of these achievements, you will have to find a number of collectibles. That being said, there are no achievements within the game that are tied to the game’s difficulty. In fact, there are no difficulty options at all.

So, you should only have to play through the game a single time to earn all of the achievements. If you miss an achievement, you can always return to the necessary portion of the game through chapter select.

Overall, getting all of the achievements in A Plague Tale is not as overwhelming of a task as in many other games. Perhaps the toughest part will simply be finding all of the collectibles. That being said, you can see where each collectible is located down below.

All in all, it should take roughly 12 hours to earn every achievement within this title.

Order of Operation

In order to be as efficient as possible with your playtime, it is suggested that you focus your efforts during your playthrough of the game on collecting as many crafting materials as you can. Two of the achievements within the game will require you to fully upgrade your sling and all of your equipment. Achieving these goals should be your top priority.

During this process, there will be a number of achievements that you cannot miss. By simply completing each chapter, you will earn a number of achievements. That being said, there are also a number of chapter specific achievements and collectibles that you will have to worry about.

If you choose to not fret over these final achievements just yet, that is okay. Since you can always go back to a section of the game through chapter select, going back to mop up any final achievements or collectibles will not add too much time to your playthrough.

To that end, here is a list of every achievement within the game.

Lunch for Hugo

In chapter two, Hugo will mention he is hungry a number of times. Within the village is an apple tree filled with apples. Once you have found the tree, approach it and interact with the fruit-bearing plant to earn this achievement. You will find the tree near a closed door with a white X marked upon it. A photo of the tree’s location can be viewed below.

Hunter Boyce is a writer, which probably seems pretty obvious with "author" prominently displayed. He mostly writes about video games. However, he was previously a mixed martial arts news writer. When not writing about people pelting each other in the face or about leveling up in the latest RPG, he tends to spend his time as a web producer in Atlanta. You can shout all of your MMA and video game related quandaries at him at @SomthinClever on Twitter. Feel free to make your demands to him in ALL CAPS. He loves that.
