PC Achievement Discussion

The achievements are now on the front page!

They have now put an end to the conventional "achievement match" by forcing the matches to be 3+ rounds. Now they will just have to play out two rounds after trading kills though, so that didn't really do much. However, this can be done in Player matches now, so those will be much easier to get.

It is also worth noting:

Not So Serious ...
20 Kill 10,000 people in versus player match total
Seriously ...
40 Kill 10,000 people in versus ranked match total

If this means you have to get 20,000 kills to get the full 1000, this is ridiculously lame. I'm hoping getting the Ranked kills will unlock both achievements.

There is also one secret achievement, which I am going to guess is for killing the new boss character (the Brumak) on Hardcore (or higher) like the other boss achievements.

Yeh I reckon that is what it is as well Pants and it is going to be easier to get all the other achievements like Hammer or Longshot, because you'll proberbly be able to go into a game with a guest and just kill each other with desired kill but a bit harder as now Epic call the shots as it is dedicated servers I believe, the only achievement is seriously that I am not looking forward to, but not so serious don't care, and really achievement matches can still live as they can do the 1 rounders as a Seriously match couldn't they.

You can't play more than one person on a PC. However, player matches you can just invite your friends at any time, so it will be easier to meet up.

Maybe they will be nice and have Ranked kills count as Player kills, so you only need 10,000. Still, that is a bit of a bugger if they are keeping what is one of the more annoying achievements from the 360 version.

The achievements are ok, though I was under the impression that Gears PC would only have the "Not so serious..." achievement and not another "Seriously..".

It does seem quite ridiculous to put both achievements in the game.

I'm wondering if Annex kills will count on the PC version. That would make them go insanely quicker. Just start a match with people and never take the objectives, just keep killing each other.

It's not so bad. 10,000 kills in player matches is fun. And you can play with friends, which won't make it difficult. Did they say what the requirements are to play Gears of War on PC?

If you have vista you should be fine with this game right? I have vista so I hope so.

I hope annex kills count but won't really mind if they don't because I will want to get all the weapon kills and stuff. It has been said that you can get only 1 kill per match, well say I get one sniper kill can I then get 1 pistol kill and they still count?

Damn... way to go epic. You give us the exact same achievements but with a homosexual twist to it! 20,000 kills? On the PC? Come on, who wants to do that? Also I'm pretty sure that this is just like the console game but with like one extra scene in it. Also, does anyone know if PC gamers and console gamers will play together? Or will they each have there own server? If they are mixed it will be easy to boost on 2 accounts using your own xbox and PC.

If the PC and 360 are on the same server that would be great...but totally agreed that is RIDICULOUS about the 20k kills..hopefully it will be 10K kills and not one kill per match....it will take awhile for someone to confirm either of these most likely

If I finish getting 1000 in Halo 3 before this comes out I will buy it.

I have a question. If you DO NOT have Vista can you still get achievements?

Do you think it'll be like Shadowrun, where you can play against people on the 360? I hope so, so I can play with my brother.

No. It has been confirmed that there will be no cross-platform play.

IGN: Halo 2 and Shadowrun, the other two Microsoft-published games that support GFW-Live both required Vista - it says as much on the back of their retail boxes. Gears of War runs on XP and Vista. Why is that? Was that your decision at Epic, or something mandated by Microsoft?

Rod Fergusson: "Gears of War" runs on XP and Vista because we wanted to bring the "Gears" experience to the broadest audience possible.

I've also seen interviews with epic confirming it works on XP

The game will work on XP. The achievements will not. His question was about the achievements.

There is no LIVE on XP. You can play the game, but you can't download your gamertag or sign in. That is only available on Vista.

Epic have said there is going to be LIVE on XP . going to be the first game to bring it over to XP, was only not in Shadowrun and Halo 2 because it was not stable, now it is.

I give up with this back and fourth :P game is out next month and we will find out.

I was dissapointed with the achievements. Almost the exact replica of 360 version. I thought they were having some new type of multiplayer mode. Either way it is Gears and I will be getting it.

Well that's news to me. I was going on current status, where LIVE is not available on XP. As of right now I'm correct.

Your correct they are getting a new multiplayer mode which sorta plays like annex but different in certain ways check Wikipedia and also they are adding new maps as well and I would like to acknowledge to pants that I wonder as well if Annex will now count because it will be in the game from launch and the achievements couldn't be done on 360 for a weird reason and why did they give seriously 10 points less

Because there is two more achievements. The secret one and Not So Serious. They had to balance the point values in order for the total to be 1000.
