Blizzard working on Achievement system

Posted on Tuesday, August 05 2008 @ 01:38:22 CEST by

Blizzard unveiled last week that the upcoming Achievement system in World of Warcraft will eventually become an account-based system that also shows your achievements in other games like Starcraft and Diablo.
“Eventually, our plans are for the Achievement system to become an account-based system,” he explained.

When the new Blizzard Accounts are active, a player’s ‘WoW’ points can be added to an overall score dubbed an account holder’s “Blizzard Level.” “It’s basically a gamerscore,” Kaplan said, when I made reference to Xbox Live’s Achievement system. “For now the points are just a ‘WoW’ character score. As we graduate to that Blizzard Account system, which is right on the horizon, it will switch over to a Blizzard Level.”

He added, “Your ‘WoW’ score would be just one factor that will go into your Blizzard Level. And rather than call it a ’score,’ we just wanted it to be like you’re leveling up on Blizzard games… You’ll have this Blizzard identity, and you’ll be able to see things like ‘Oh, this guy was great at Diablo III, but he never played Starcraft and he was mediocre in WoW.’ That sort of thing.”

In the interim the new Achievement system — which will launch upon the release of the “WoW” expansion “Wrath of the Lich King” — will be tied to the current “World of Warcraft” armory website in addition to the in-game Achievement interface.
