Since we set up these here sites, we've had ourselves a bucket list... Publish a guide book. Check. Become more than just a niche site. Check. By far the biggest personal goal of mine was to design an Achievement and Trophy list... I don't just mean, 'make one up and draw it on some napkins,' I mean, design a list for an actual game that will be actually used. It is with great excitment then that I announce that we're designing the Achievement and Trophy list for Codemasters' upcoming and hugely anticipated racer, GRID 2. Not only that, but we're going to document the process from start to finish to give you an inside look into the process. This never-been-done before adventure starts here, folks!
I'll shut up now, here's the press release...
Sheffield, November 23rd, 2012 – In an unprecedented move in the world of video games, Codemasters will be enlisting the help and utilising the years of experience of Xbox 360 Achievements (X360A) and PS3 Trophies (PS3T) to create the Achievement and Trophy list for the upcoming and highly anticipated racer, GRID 2.
Xbox 360 Achievements and PS3 Trophies will work hand-in-hand with the designers at Codemasters’ world class racing studio, to create an Achievement and Trophy list that will perfectly compliment the game and play to its strengths.
Documenting the process from start to finish, gamers will be able to track what goes into creating an Achievement and Trophy list with a series of features, vid blogs and more, giving gamers a detailed insight into a process that is very much a mystery for most onlookers.
“If anyone knows the achievement and trophy crowd, it’s us,” said Editor-in-Chief of Xbox360Achievements.org and PS3Trophies.org, Dan Webb, “For years we’ve been criticising lacklustre Achievement & Trophy lists, and now, we finally get the chance to put our money where our mouth is. Codemasters have put their faith in us to work with them on creating the ultimate list, and we’re looking forward to repaying that trust to design Achievements and Trophies with unique objectives that will put a smile on players’ faces with each and every unlock.”
“Xbox 360 Achievements and PS3 Trophies are the recognised ‘go to’ sites for anyone interested in getting the most from their game’s Achievements and Trophies,” said Clive Moody, Executive Producer, Codemasters Racing Studio. “Their extensive knowledge coupled with our studio talent will make for a uniquely crafted list with insight from the experts, offering gamers real challenge and reasons to chase every possible reward. It’s a new approach, but we think it will be a lot of fun and a great way to give player’s an insight into this increasingly important element of game design.”
GRID 2 is scheduled for a summer 2013 release. Keep an eye on Xbox360Achievements.org and PS3Trophies.org for all the coverage as they embark on this never-been-done-before adventure.
