Microsoft might be preparing to launch a new achievement system called Careers to sit alongside the current Xbox achievement system, according to a recent report by Windows Central.
The new system is supposedly designed to compensate for the fact that the current achievement system emphasizes playing a wide breadth of games quickly over completion of one game over a long period of time. Because I can easily score higher by getting the tutorial completion achievements in 20 games than if I manage to 100% a 300 hour RPG. Thats not cool for those of us who like to sit there and play the same game for months.
Thus, this rumored new Career mode is designed to give players goals to hit in the game theyre currently playing instead of just achieving points regardless of where they come from.
Microsoft has not confirmed the plan, but Windows Central reports that they are actively committing resources to it. According to that report, it appears that the Career system will award players with levels, and even prestige ranks, based on their gaming habits and give them loot crates with cosmetic attire for their Avatars as a reward.
We wouldnt be surprised at all if this mode is announced soon, as it does fit into Microsofts current goal of providing games with a lengthy lifespan.
