Welcome to the Horizon Forbidden West New Game+ Trophy Guide! This update to Horizon Forbidden West adds a slew of new features, including the highly-requested NG+. This update also introduces three new trophies. In addition to your standard trophies for completing NG+ on any difficulty and Ultra Hard, you also need to collect a new type of Token, the Champion’s Token, which are earned by completing main and side content activities. To be able to unlock the trophy for obtaining all NG+ Rewards you need 125 Champion’s Tokens, which is equal to replaying 80% of the game.

Step 1: Complete NG+ on Story Difficulty and Obtain 95 Champion’s Tokens

It is highly recommended to do your first NG+ playthrough on Story Difficulty. The reason being that if you immediately start on Ultra Hard, you then cannot switch back to Story Difficulty after finishing the Story. You would then be locked into the highest difficulty setting for the Champion’s Tokens grind, taking a lot longer to 100% the DLC. So, rush through the Story first on Story Difficulty. Completing each Main Story quest will earn you 2 Champion’s Tokens. After completing the Story you will have 30 Champion’s Tokens. To obtain the remaining 65 Tokens, you need to complete side content. Prioritize Rebel Camps, Cauldrons, and supporting characters’ side quests as these unlock 3 Tokens each. Additionally, you can easily earn 10 Champion’s Tokens by overriding 5 Tallnecks (the story-related one doesn’t count). Simply land onto them with the Sunwing to speed things up. Everything else gives you 2 Tokens. With the exception of a couple of Errands, you can ignore anything that gives you only one Token or no Token at all. These are just not worth the hassle. Once you’ve collected 95 Tokens, you’re ready for Step 2.

Step 2: Complete NG+ on Ultra Hard Difficulty for the remaining 30 Champion’s Tokens

Now replay through the Story, but this time on Ultra Hard. Just focus entirely on the Story and skip everything else. Because Champion’s Tokens carry over from save file to save file, you now need an additional 30 Champion’s Tokens from just the Story to buy whatever you’ve got left.
