A Plague Tale: Requiem — Old Protector trophy and achievement guide

A Plague Tale: Requiem‘s heartrending tale of two siblings, Amicia and Hugo, seeking answers about a mysterious illness is a captivating one, and it’s filled with no shortage of twists and turns along the way. About halfway through the game, though, you’ll finally reach a sanctuary that promises to house some answers — though not all may be as it first seems. Moreover, this section of the journey is also where you can earn the Old Protector trophy or achievement, which tasks you with interacting with all of the old protector’s items while exploring the sanctuary.

Further reading

While getting the Old Protector trophy or achievement may seem straightforward — and it largely is — you can trigger a cutscene near the end of the area that can force you forward in the story, which means you’d have to replay the section later for the trophy or achievement. You’ll want to be sure you know precisely what to do so you don’t miss out, and we’ve got you covered below.

How to find all of the items for the Old Protector trophy or achievement

The Old Protector trophy or achievement can be obtained while exploring the sanctuary during Chapter IX: Tales and Revelations. Near the end of the chapter, you’ll enter a door where Amicia and Hugo finally discover the rooms of the previous protector and carrier. You’ll know you’re in the right place if Hugo takes off to a tent in the middle of the room. Talk to Hugo in the tent to trigger a quick discussion; you’ll then be able to explore and begin examining the items you need.

Amicia speaks to Hugo in a tent

The first room contains three items to examine:

  • A wooden horse in the middle
  • A bed against a wall
  • Wooden toys to the left of the exit door

Continue through the door into the second room.

The second room contains four items to examine:

  • A suit of lady’s armor, directly ahead when you walk in
  • A wagon of toys against a column
  • A rack of weapons to the right of the armor
  • Wax tablets next the exit door

Continue through the door and into a small courtyard, then through another door into a laboratory.

The laboratory contains five items to examine:

  • An athanor (furnace) in a corner
  • Some type of powder or ashes in the floor against a wall
  • Phials against a wall
  • More phials in a corner
  • More phials behind the table where Hugo’s standing

Speak to Hugo, then pass through the curtain on the back wall. Head up the stairs and into the library.

The library contains two items to examine:

  • A scroll on the left wall
  • A grate in the center

When you’ve examined everything, you’ll pop the Old Protector trophy or achievement and be one step closer to fully completing A Plague Tale: Requiem.

Where to find Republic Chests in Fortnite
Republic Chest

Star Wars is once again taking over Fortnite with the brand-new Find the Force event, which brings a ton of new quests, items, and cosmetics to the popular battle royale. If you want to complete the full event reward track and earn all of the skins, one of the quests you'll need to knock out is opening a Republic Chest. Of course, you may want to seek these out each game anyways, as opening them will reward you with a new DC-15 Blaster, which is an immensely strong firearm that has infinite ammo and excellent range. Here's where to find Republic Chests.
Where to find Republic Chests and what's in them
Republic Chests can be found at three locations on the Chapter 4 Season 2 map. You'll find some located about halfway between The Citadel and Shattered Slabs, some to the west of Slappy Shores, and some by the road southwest of Frenzy Fields. Land at one of these spots and search the white tent-like buildings there for the chests.

Each Republic Chest contains one of the new DC-15 Blaster firearms alongside a selection of random support or healing items. You'll commonly see Medkits, Small Shield Potions, and Chug Splashes pop out, so you shouldn't have much trouble getting prepared for battle from the items you get from the Republic Chests.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has a wide variety of skills to learn alongside its five unique lightsaber stances, ensuring you have no shortage of ways to customize your playstyle. The addition of perks bumps up those options even further, granting you the ability to equip badges that improve certain aspects of protagonist Cal Kestis' kit, such as increasing XP earned or improving his ability to break the guard of his foes.
