Next Xbox Will Reportedly Take A New Approach To Achievements

Posted on Friday, April 26 @ 09:26:17 PST by Alex_Osborn

Microsoft changed the way be play games by introducing Achievements when the Xbox 360 first launched back in 2005. It appears that the company plans to take their point-based system one step further with the next Xbox by allowing developers to freely add additional Achievements following a game's launch.

Polygon is reporting that “With the next Xbox, developers and publishers will be able to add more achievements to a game after launch, without the need to add DLC. This is designed specifically to allow developers to tweak player behavior, perhaps urging players to check out specific areas of a game or get past a difficult spot.”

In addition, the outlet claims that the company is looking into cross-title Achievements, which, for example may reward a player "for finishing the first chapter in two different and unrelated games published by the same company." Support from cross-platform Achievements is also said to be in the works.

What do you think of this new dynamic approach to Achievements? Will Microsoft have Sony playing catchup again? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
