    How to find missing Artifacts?: In-game the Artifacts will appear simply as small, white glowing spots on the ground. You can pick up these Artifacts to collect them when you stand next to them. It can be confirmed as being Artifacts simply by walking up to it, as the on-screen text will then show a yellow “R1 button press icon” atop it, at which point you can press the R1 action button to pick up the Artifacts.

    You can also get the Artifacts via Chapter Select.

    Does the game save each Artifacts you collect?: Yes, the game will automatically save the Artifacts you just collected if you picked up the Artifact, so you don’t have to play to the end of the chapter or even the next checkpoint. After picking up each collectible you can safely quit the chapter without losing collectibles progress.

    What does each Artifact cheat activate?: Artifact will activate special cheats after you’ve finished the game. When you start a New Game+ — which also unlocks after finishing the game — you can turn on the Artifacts you’ve collected to give you special abilities.

    The Artifact give you the following cheats:

    1. The Prisoner’s Oath Stone Artifact cheat enables: Infinite Rage
    2. The Circe’s Vial Artifact cheat enables: x3 Combo Time Multiplier
    3. The Oracle Seeker’s Offering Artifact cheat enables: x10 Red Ord Collection Multiplier
    4. The Aletheia’s Charm Artifact cheat enables: 1/3rd Damage Taken
    5. The Boat Captain’s Idol Artifact cheat enables: Infinite Magic
    6. The Orko’s Cloak Artifact cheat enables: Health Regenerates
    7. The Stonemason’s Chisel Artifact cheat enables: Cool-down Reduction
    8. The Archimedes’ Treatise Artifact cheat enables: Instant Completion of QTE Events
    9. The Statue Worker’s Idol Artifact cheat enables: Stun Time Increased
    10. The Antikythera Mechanism Artifact cheat enables: Constant Health Drain (this literally sucks)

      maybe this is a dumb question, but after i have beat the game, and want to play again using the artifacts, do i start a new campaign in a new slot or in the original slot, thus erasing all saved data in original slot?


    • @960785832a1d00c91c09307e2636de6e:disqus : No worries, there are no dumb questions. 🙂
      After you beat the game your save file will change into a New Game+ save file, which automatically lets you use the Artifacts you’ve collected.
      That said, by activating Artifacts trophies get disabled. Which is why it’s so important to do the collecting before finishing the game.
