The description says "Complete all Challenge Tombs in one playthrough"

After some days and reports from the users, I think we have the riddle solved :)

One playthrough means dont start a new game, thats all. You can get this achievement after the story, on multiple savegames, all is fine when you play and solve the 9 tombs in your game without starting a new game. (thanks Tecstar70 in the comments)

Want to go totally safe but it is not necessary, then solve all 9 tombs in the game before you finish the story. At the last base camp in the Lost City area you get a warning from the Game "Point of no Return...." Dont go forward here and solve as first the 9 tombs.

Here are my 9 walkthrough videos for all tombs. The videos are including all collectibles in the tombs and are straight to point. (There is no testing or trying, real walkthroughs)

The first tomb vid is incl. the entire area collectibles in Glacial Cavern.

Ice Ship Tomb (Glacial Cavern)

Ancient Cistern (Soviet Installation)

Voice of God (Soviet Installation)

The Red Mine (Soviet Installation)

Baths of Kitezh (Geothermal Valley)

House of the Afflicted (Geothermal Valley)

The Pit of Judgment (Geothermal Valley)

Catacomb of Sacred Waters (Geothermal Valley)

Chamber of Exorcism (The Lost City)
Tecstar70I can confirm that you CAN use multiple save slots and still get this achievement.

EproximaIn the term "playthrough" i guess they mean like Zasta here says.. Pick up the tombs BEFORE finishing the game . If you finish the game with unfinished tombs I guess you will NOT get this achievement.

Tecstar70No that's not correct. You can finish the game, ie: storyline and collectables etc and still complete the tombs to get this achievement. You just have to do them all within the same game and as I said previously you CAN use multiple save slots.

Zasta 360GameTValso is "one playthrough" = dont start a new game and all is fine?

Tecstar70^^^Yes. That is correct.

TTDog666Where is the "Chamber of Exorcism" on the map?

It could be that I just haven't reached that part yet... have just had the secret path opened up below the Observatory.

SavingFerrisI've have 3 glitched achievements for this game. Really disappointed after all the hours i put into the game. This will be the last time i buy a Crystal Dynamics game.
