Analysing the GTA V Achievements List
The Order A Game Blog brings you the latest features and discussions on video games.
The team here at the Order A Game Blog is getting very excited for the release of the most anticipated, most awaited, game of the year and perhaps the game of the current console generation – Grand Theft Auto V!
Earlier we listed the achievements that have been revealed for the video game. Click here for the achievements.
Today, we analyse and dissect the achievements list and point out a few things that have drawn our attention.
The reveal for GTA V online was made into a big event and deservedly so. The reveal points out the major improvements that have been made to the online component of the already very content heavy video game. What is very interesting is that the achievements list for the game reveals that Rockstar is fully supporting and promoting the online mode of the game by trying to instill a long term and consistent usage of the mode. Out of a total of 49 achievements there are no less than 17 achievements that are solely aimed at online play. Rockstar is trying to ensure that people hold onto and keep playing the new Grand Theft Auto game for even longer than before. The number of onkine achievements will surley ensure that players are regular visitors to the multiplayer mode and that the servers are kept busy.
Another point to note is that the online component will not actually be available unitil a month after the release of the Game. Seems like Rockstar has found a method to resolve the pre-owned problem?
Spaceship – yes spaceship!:
One of the achievements – titled “”From Beyond The Stars” and carrying a gamer score of 15 requires players to collect and return all apsace ship parts. Not only is this interesting but also a possible indication that the game might feature some sort of probable out of this world encounter?
We all know that the GTA games have been known to be over the top and satirical in their depiction of the world but this could take it to another level. Let’s just hope they do not take it down the route that Saints Row has adopted with its recent ventures.
May be we are wrong and the space ship part only refers to something like a space shuttle something like Richard Branson is planning.
You are all in for the long haul:
If there was any doubt with regards to the number of hours that pplayers might be putting into what is historically one of the most content heavy, well written, time consuming franchises then rest assured that GTA V is one game that you will not be putting away or selling off early. For all the achievement hunters there is a significant of gamer score to be had once completing the game 100%. The Career Criminal achievement awards players a Gamer score of 100 for 100%completion. 50 gamer score is awarded for the “Sold Gold, Baby” achievement which involves earning 70 gold medals in the game and a further 30 gamer score is awarded for the “San Andreas Sightseer achievement” for seeing all of Los Santos and Blaine County.
There are also 11 secret achievements.
The corresponding trophy allocation for each achievement has not been detailed but it seems pretty obvious as to which achievements are most like to match with a Bronze, Silver or Gold trophy.
There are probably a lot more things that can be deduced from the list but these are the points that have stood out for us.
