Oculus has added the new Achievements in both the Rift and Samsung Gear VR which now makes the both Hitman and Minecraft more exciting because you're not just playing the game, you are also playing playing against yourself.
With this Achievements announcement, EndGadget said that Oculus is joining the other online virtual thophies like Xbox Live, GameCenter and PlayStation Network. You do need to launch the game through Oculus Home in order to make use of this new mode.
The Verge listed the things that players can do under the Oculus Achievements:
- They can track the decisions they made in games that they play over the course of months or even years;
- Side quests and Easter eggs are easier to spot
- Recommended actions that could lead to a successful campaign can be seen subtly
- Players can also "make silly meta-jokes about the nature of achievements"
However, this bit of news won't bother some Oculus Rift or Samsung Gear VR owners. The fact is some of them don't really much care about achievements. Also, some of the owners will be using Steam in launching the game, so they will skip the Oculus Achievements altogether.
Digital Trends added that the Oculus Achievements will be seen not just in Minecraft and Hitman Go but also in lesser titles like Anshar Wars 2.
The website added Oculus Achievements is not "as robust" as Xbox Live and PlayStation Network. In the two latter networks, for instance, there are different difficulty levels for Bronze, Silver Gold and Platinum as well as the player getting points corresponding to the tally.
