Achievements Confirmed For Star Wars: The Old Republic

Some few them as ways to augment and prolong a gaming experience. Some believe that they are everything that's wrong with gaming today. Well, love them or hate them, Achievements are here to stay and now BioWare have confirmed that they'll be popping up in Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Achievements have made ship in fact. They're not going to be the achievements, the crazy achievements that you have to place everywhere, that are like, "Hey if you drink 6 beers and fart in a cantina," those are not going the achievements to go in. Version 1 of the achievement system which go in, which is actually doing big, heroic stuff, because there's a ton of great optional content in The Old Republic, like, "Hey, I went to every world and kicked the world boss's ass." Those kinds of achievements. That's going to be the level one system. People need reasons to go back to planets and run around and do that other stuff, so that will come second. The first system is, "Hey, here's my bragging rights, here's the bad ass stuff I did in-game." Daniel Erickson, BioWare. [DarthHater]

We're all for it, and itching to play the full thing since BioWare announced a December release date. Better upgrade the rig before then! [via Joystiq]

What about the delayed euro beta, or the early access? Seems like there wont be time.

My guess is, with a good chunk of the Bioware EU team having attended all the Expo's recently they delayed sending out any invites. Chances are now the Expo season is over, and their team back at full strength, we'll see some movement regarding the beta. Early access will go ahead as planned I reckon.
