These 11 achievements/trophies are tied into collecting a number of different items throughout the game including: Relics, Documents, Survival Caches and Murals as well as completing the game’s nine Challenge Tombs, eight side-missions and completing a series of challenges also relating to similar, area-specific collectible types such as Flags, Posters or Gas Tanks.
Every collectible, Challenge Tomb, Side-mission and challenge completion is obtainable before the end of the first run through the game and by following the walkthrough above, you’ll have everything necessary for 100% completion. Players can also use fast travel to explore the world (including the Syria prologue area) following the end of the game as well, so there is no need to worry about missing something!
These are the collectible achievements/trophies in Rise of the Tomb Raider:
|Truth Seeker||Collect 25% of all narrative assets (relics, murals, and documents).|
|Voices of the Past||Collect 75% of all narrative assets (relics, murals, and documents).|
|Keen Eye||Unearth 40 Survival Caches.|
Description: Reach max proficiency in one language
In order to improve Lara’s language proficiency, you’ll need to hunt down the ‘narrative assets’ (as the game calls them). These include primarily the Document and Mural collectibles but certain Relics can be examined for points of interest which can help to boost language skills. For the record, the maximum language level for the three languages in the game include: Mongolian = Level 2, Russian = Level 3 and Greek = Level 7.
The earliest maxed out language proficiency you can earn is Russian and by following the walkthrough above, you should earn it during the Copper Mill section during your first visit to the Soviet Installation.
