We have just received word that the first achievement has been unlocked in Brothers in Arms Hell's Highway.Allison "ennui" Berryman has revealed the following:
The Hell's Highway team has already implemented almost half of the achievements in the game, and selected one that would be simple to test to ensure that unlocks were working properly. As many of you have seen in the various videos for Hell's Highway, sometimes when a really interesting action sequence happens (like a good grenade throw), the camera zooms in and slows down to give you a better look at the event. The first time you get a headshot in Hell's Highway, this action camera sequence happens, and you unlock an achievement - since this is fairly easy to test, it was chosen to be the first achievement unlocked in Hell's Highway. I got a photo of it for you guys when Chris loaded up a test map (not a map in the final game, just a testing ground) for us and unlocked the achievement!
The Hell's Highway team has given some serious thought toward making the Hell's Highway achievements stand out from the crowd - some of us here are very excited about achievements. Coming up with the specific achievements involved people all over the company, and Neil J , Ryan C , Chris , and others have worked hard to implement them. In addition to some standard achievements, Hell's Highway is going to have some that I think will impress everyone, even seasoned 360 owners. I can't spill all the beans or there wouldn't be any surprises, but I know that I was definitely impressed with the ingenuity the team has displayed in coming up with interesting and fun achievements for you achievement-hunters out there!
Big thanks to Allison for letting us see the very beginnng of the Achievement list - we hope to keep you updated all the way through!
