June Xbox Update Enables You to Reveal Secret Achievements

June Xbox Update Enables You to Reveal Secret Achievements

Richard Walker

Microsoft has announced the upcoming June Xbox update, which, among other things, will enable you to reveal the details of secret achievements from the console guide page. Apparently, the latest update will also improve the “speed and reliability” of detecting available game updates, via your collection and upon launching a game.

“If you don’t mind spoilers and want a hint on any of the achievements in the games you’re playing, it’s easy to find the secret achievement details on your Xbox,” the Xbox Wire post regarding the forthcoming update explains. “From within a game, open the guide and go to Game activity > Achievements.”

Choosing to reveal a secret achievement will show its title, achievement description, and Gamerscore value. You can either simply take a peek and then re-hide the secret achievement, or permanently display its details. The feature will be available on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, as well as via the Xbox app for iOS, Android, and Windows PC.

  • I know there are those who don't mind spoilers, but I think secret achievements definitely serve a purpose if it's hiding elements related to the story. It's always a bummer to look at achievements, discovering something you probably shouldn't have, and now know what will eventually happen, eliminating that element of surprise.

    On a subject unrelated to secret achievements, but still topic related, which is a small gripe of mine... It'd be great if in a future update, Microsoft removed the "available on GamePass" plastered right where the price used to be for games. If the person wants GamePass, they'll get it. Stop trying to shove it down one's throat and let us see the damn price to games without having to do the extra step of selecting the game. You can show the price of the game and have the GamePass logo in the lower left corner of the image the way you have X|S logo. ::steps down from soap box::
  • Guess I wont need to come to this website to check what the secret achievements are anymore
