The days of playing a game for personal gratification are long lost in the modern era of gaming, for aside from flexing your thumbs against some of the world’s best in online multiplayer lobbies, one can also clock up the achievements offered by every title released to market. Now, given that Grand Theft Auto 5 is set to be one of the biggest releases of 2013, it stands to reason that hardcore fans might like to know exactly what kinds of achievements are on offer from Rockstar’s forthcoming blockbuster, and even though the game won’t be around for a month yet, Xbox360Achievements has come through with the juicy details. We run through them after the break, although we wouldn’t be fulfilling our duties if we weren’t to issue a spoiler alert!
Xbox360Achievements lists a total of 49 achievements, allowing gamers to net a total of one thousand points to that all-important Gamerscore. Of course, the 100 points for the full completion of the game has to be seen as the holy grail, but reaching rank 100 online may appeal to the ultra-competitive GTA 5 player, and can accrue a tidy 80 points.
Full Refund is one of my personal favorites, and will net you 10 points for taking capital revenge on somebody who, to put it mildly, picked your pocket. To me, it epitomizes what makes GTA what it is, and I am sure that when I fire the title up on my Xbox 360, it’s one of the first achievements I’ll be seeking to unlock.
The full list of 49 can be read from the source, and while most of the achievements have been divulged, several are listed as ‘secret.’ So even if you’ve inadvertently run into the spoilers, it needn’t stop you from fully enjoying Grand Theft Auto 5 when released. But still, for the sake of simplicity, and for those who are lazy, we’ve embedded the whole list of achievements below:
The title will be available from September 17th for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and you can put your pre-orders for the game down right now through all of the usual retailers. NVIDIA has also suggested that GTA 5 will be available for PC at the end of the year, and while Rockstar has yet to corroborate this, those more accustomed to desktop gaming may wish to hold off the initial console release.
