An achievement guide you can follow as you play the game. Step by step for each achievement.
How to Obtain All Achievements
There are a total of 37 achievements which require you to find random collectibles, documents, turning on televisions and radios. You should only require 1 play-through but don’t worry if you missed anything, the game is very forgiving on their chapter select, unlike some games coughThe Quarrycough. So you wont need to replay from that certain chapter where you missed the collectible all the way back to the end. Once you grab it, you can just quit and go to another chapter.
A casual run through this game while following this guide will take you about 4-5 hours.
Quick Note: If you did play the prologue. You will notice that you can start from Act IV. Do not do this. The achievements from the prologue are not retroactive and Act III was actually shorter in the prologue than it is in the full game, so you will be missing out on an important part of the game.
