With Titanfall’s release just around the corner, new details surface every day. Thanks to the game’s official Xbox Live listing, we now know that its installation size will be 15.88 GB on the Xbox One.

A NeoGAF user named Sangreal also uncovered and posted a list of 35 achievements for Titanfall, along with the first Xbox One challenge for the game, although we cannot verify the accuracy of the list.

A sadder detail is that you won’t be able to pre-load the game. Xbox One users were excited when the listing was first revealed, because it said players would be able to download the game in advance, so that they could play it immediately when it unlocked on its release date. However, Microsoft has since come forth and announced that the message was an error. If you want to play Titanfall on your Xbox One, you’ll have to download it on its release day after all.

Still, at least you can check out the rumored achievement list in the meantime. Let us know your thoughts.

Xbox One Achievements UI revealed

November 17, 2013 by Cheats.co Staff - Leave a comment

We know how Achievements (and also Challenges) are going to work on the Xbox One, but no actual Xbox One Achievements have been revealed, yet. Microsoft’s Marc Whitten recently posted a couple of screenshots taken from Ryse: Son of Rome to Twitter however, and they give us a little more insight about what to expect come this Friday.


First off we have a screenshot showing how the main page of Achievements for a game will look (and doesn’t it look pretty!). There seems to be a requirement that each Achievement have an in-game screenshot linked to it.

Secondly is the “Achievement detail” screen which is accessed by pressing A on your controller when hovering over an individual Achievement. It reveals the beautiful looking screen below with further details on the specific Achievement you’d like to know more about.

Looking good Microsoft!

Official word on Xbox One Achievements

Major Nelson recently posted a piece on his blog from Cierra McDonald, who is the Program Manager for the Xbox Live Achievements service. She detailed exactly what changes are coming in respect of Achievements on the Xbox One and how the new system will work. So without further ado, here’s everything you need to know:

  • Current gamerscore: Your current Xbox 360 gamerscore will carry over to the Xbox One.
  • Unlock bonus items: You will be able to unlock digital artwork, new maps, unlockable characters and temporary stat boosts via Achievements.
  • Two types of Achievements: There will be two types of Achievements: Achievements and Challenges – yes both are technically called “Achievements”.
  • Status of Achievements: “Achievements Achievements” will exist as they do currently – a goal or task to complete and a corresponding reward in the form of gamerscore points or a new unlock, as detailed above.
  • What are Challenges: Challenges are like temporary opportunities, or chances, to gain a new unlock (Challenges do not give you gamerscore). All Challenges will be time-limited – you can only unlock them during a specific time window.
  • DVR capture: When you successfully complete an Achievement or Challenge it will often be accompanied by a DVR capture, so you can show your friends exactly what you did (and why you’re better than them!).
  • Continuous additions: Developers can add more Achievements and Challenges after a game has been released.
  • Gamerscore: As noted above, only Achievements (which can be earned at any time and are NOT limited by time windows/do not expire) will give you gamerscore points.
  • Multiple game relations: Challenges can span across titles (for example, get a headshot in every single Call of Duty game within one weekend). Achievements are limited to individual games.
  • Community Challenges: Some Challenges require an entire community to unlock. For example, gamers must get 1 million headshots in Battlefield 4 over a weekend. If this is done, then every player who got a headshot in that period will get the Challenge reward.

So, having read our neat summary above, what’s your view on the Achievements system for the Xbox One?
