New achievement system for Xbox One

Written by David Stellmack

Monthly Gamerscore cap for developers

Microsoft will be overhauling its achievement system with the release of the Xbox One. Sources tell us that developers will be able to add new achievements to titles every week after release in an effort to keep players engaged and playing the game.

This might sound like an achievement bonanza, but Microsoft will be limiting the monthly amount of achievement scores using a month cap system. This will be put in place to stop gamers from racking up too many achievement points. With the new system, it should stop the situations that the company has been seeing where players are able to rack up all 1,000 achievement points within the first couple weeks of release.

Microsoft is also planning to add new ways for players to get achievements. The weekly updates adding additional achievements are great, but new TV-based achievements (as well as other types of new ways to earn) will be added. It isn’t clear what Microsoft may have planned, but they do look to continue to tinker with the ways in which achievements and types of achievements can be earned.
