BioWare Discusses Star Wars: The Old Republic’s Legacy Achievements

Posted on April 4, 2013 AT 04:01am

Now you may be thinking, an MMO is adding achievements so what? Well just hold your horses for a second because these are Legacy Achievements, a whole different ball game.

Instead of the usual per character achievements that most MMOs offer, BioWare is using Star Wars: The Old Republic‘s Legacy system to track achievements across all of your characters. This allows you to earn achievement progress no matter which charcter you wish to play with, and what’s even better is that you only have to unlock each one once.

Veterans will also be pleased to hear that a lot of achievements will be back dated and awarded upon logging in to 2.0. Only achievements that require killing a certain number of mobs or ones that can’t be tracked via codec entries will be locked.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
