XBOX Achievements changes, challenges

3 replies 1001 views Edited Jun 13, 2013

"First things first: you can now earn more than just regular achievements. Those are staying as they are (well, mostly, more on that later). Alongside them, though, games will also set you "challenges", which will be limited in availability, mostly pegged to real-world timeframes. Interestingly, these can span games, potentially including genres, series or a publishers catalogue."

 

"Achievements no longer only unlock...achievements. Or avatar gear. They can now also be rigged to provide users with "digital artwork, new maps, unlockable characters, and temporary stat boosts"."

 

read the rest here

 

I like the part where they can unlock new maps and stuff. i wonder if getting a certain unlockable will ONLY be available by getting a certain achievement

Trophies being linked to in-game rewards is something i've always wanted. I hope this is something that comes to the playstation.

 

Although, I suppose most of the significant trophies were an after-effect of doing something in-game that rewarded you..so i guess it doesnt really matter.
