Downloadable content is additional content (e.g., new levels, missions, characters, or items) that can be downloaded in order to expand a game. Downloadable content often (but not always) adds new trophies to a game, but those new trophies are typically not required to earn the game's platinum trophy. However, there are a handful of exceptions to this rule (see below).
History and details
Prior to the system software 3.00 update for the Playstation 3 on September 1, 2009, DLC trophies appeared in the same list as the base game's trophies (although they were still not required in order to earn the game's platinum, if it had one). A list of games with "unsplit" DLC trophy lists like this can be found at Category:Games with unsplit DLC trophy lists.
Games requiring DLC to platinum
Despite the general rule that DLC trophies are not required for a game's platinum, there are a handful of exceptions:
| Blazblue Chronophantasma Extend
|The Eye of Judgment|
| Hand of Fate
Notable DLC without trophies
There are many DLC packages that do not add trophies to a game, such as ones that just add skins or cosmetic features to the game. However, there are also some large level packs that add a substantial amount of content to the game, but nonetheless do not add any trophies. These DLC packages are listed here.
| Assassin's Creed 2
| Dark Souls
| Dark Souls 2
| Dark Souls 3
Games with stand-alone DLC trophy lists
Typically, DLC trophies are appended to the game's trophy list. However, sometimes they get their own separate trophy list.
|Assassin's Creed: Freedom Cry|
| Infamous: Festival of Blood
| Infamous: First Light
| Wolfenstein: The Old Blood
Games with lots of DLC
Many games get anywhere from 1 to 4 DLC packages with trophies. However, some games get an excessive number of DLC packages, or DLC gradually released over the course of years after the game's release. These games are cataloged here.
| Minecraft (PS3)
| Sound Shapes
