Full House Poker DLC & New Achievements Coming Next Week
Written By
View author's profile

Poker fans, get those poker faces at the ready as Microsoft has announced the next season of Full House Poker’s Texas Heat will be heading your way next week with more achievements.

Players still looking to get those season 1 achievements will have their last chance today too, with Microsoft extending the Texas Heat spring season by one more day. That’s today, Saturday 28th May.

Starting on June 4th though, players will be able to delve into season 2 and earn an additional 50 Gamerscore over the summer.

So if you’re looking at maxing out the game, don’t forget to get those last few spring season achievements today, before the summer season kicks off next Saturday.

[Thanks Steven]

It is 800 MSP, but the DLC has been free so far.

Here's hoping for non-glitched achievements this time 'round.

So people pay 800MS points, and after a few months cannot earn the achievements? Well that certainly doesn't seem fair on the consumers!

@#9 : it's already available in Europe (in France anyway, where are you ?)

The game has been out for like what ? 2 months ?
And they're already changing the "season"
So glad I did not grab this, felt like it will be another 1Vs100 crap... And it is ^^

Thanks for the credit! Glad I could help contribute to the site.

OT: I am excited that Microsoft is still supporting this. Now I have a reason to play this game again. I am hoping they don't have another gold medal achievement but something is telling me that this will be the same as last time. Will add these to my achievement guide once they are released.

Damn right they should extend season 1, seeing as how they promised people Texas Heat on Tuesday and didn't actually have any. Hoping they raise the level cap to 100.

@11 - In case you didn't realize, the game's "seasons" go in accordance to the real life weather seasons. The spring season is ending as it lasted since the beginning of Spring in March.

Now the actual summer solstice is occurring soon, therefore they're changing over to the Texas Heat Summer schedule.

Just sayin'.

@#10 - Not sure where you got that it is going to be 800 MP for it (the actual game itself cost 800 MP). They have not even said if it is free or will cost anything. My guess is that it will be free, considering the last one was free and the DLC is only available for a limited time.

@#10 - The base game is 800MSP and has 200 gamerscore that can be gotten at any time. The DLC is free and adds 50 more gamerscore that can only be gotten during the Texas Heat season, and this new DLC will be the same way. It was made pretty clear that this would be how the game would be prior to it coming out, so anyone that is upset about the limited time availability of some of the achievements clearly didn't read up on it before they bought the game.

@#17 - Nope. The achievements specifically say "Spring 2011", not just Spring. If they do a Texas Heat season next Spring it would have new achievements.

FML.
DLC in Arcade games is just kicking my ass...
I cant focus on new games, when I have to constantly go back and Re-Beat the games ive already finished.

Dont get me wrong, for some games I welcome new levels, and new challenges..
But lately, DLC has just been so tacky and it just feels like a money grub.

This is going to end up just like 1 vs 100. I like how Microsoft breaks their own rules by making achievements unobtainable after a certain period, it makes absolutely no sense at all

@11 Its nothing like 1vs100! Its poker for a start and you have to pay to get the game. so alot less random people just mashing buttons as soon as the question ends for max points. It comes to my attention that only a person who doesnt play poker and simply wants access to free acheivments would troll this link and bad mouth it.

For one, Im glad theres going to be DLC, one more acheivment to get tonight before I have all the Spring ones so will be looking forward to the Summer season.

See you all on the felt ;)

@24 This game only has hold'em, there is no draw on this poker game, don't know what you tried but it wasn't this game.

@25 Where did you hear or see that rule?

What a load of bollocks. I bloody paid for the game and didnt even know they were time limited cheevo's. Fair enough if the game was free but not when you pay good money for it. What they gonna do next with full price disc games?? Oh you only have until ???? to get your full 1000 then you will forever have a none complete game sitting on your record. They should at least give the option to remove the non obtainable cheevo's from the game list.

@28 You can still get the full 200GS in the game, that's what you paid for. The DLC was free and it was pretty obvious in the title that it had time limited achievements.

Where are most of you getting the idea there is some achievement "Bill of Rights"?

People are just upset because even if they get "the full" 200 achievement points, their listing still shows 200/250+ and I get that. Also, people are upset because no matter what region you're in, Microsoft is advertising Texas Heat as a part of the full game without disclosing that the US, Canada, and UK (am I missing any countries?) are the only three countries that have access to this out of the full 36 countries XBOX Live is offered in. Nowhere in any of the product descriptions are they alerted that Texas Heat is not available.

Damn. My 200/250 is going to be 200/300? I still play Poker a fair bit, despite being level 50 and having done everything except the DLC I'm not allowed to have for some unknown reason. It would be nice to have a chance at this.

Good to see them supporting their fans. Except the first season was NEVER released here and the additional 50GS is unobtainable, and I imagine this will be as well. Region exclusive achievements are not cool, it can't be that hard to share the love.
