Google Stadia Now Has Achievements, But Mobile Users Need To Wait
They'll apply retroactively too.
Google Stadia has finally added achievements to its games. You can now earn achievements in Stadia titles, and they'll be retroactively awarded to players who have completed the tasks that achievements ask of them, meaning you won't need to restart games to earn them.
There's a catch, though--achievements are only live for users on Chrome browser or Chromecast. Mobile app users do not yet have access to achievements; they are coming in 2020, according to the latest Stadia Community round-up.
🔔 Our achievement system is here and you will now receive notifications when playing on desktop, laptop, and TV. You can view your full achievement list on web, including all the ones you've earned since you began playing Stadia. pic.twitter.com/VX7cGg9K9k— Stadia (@GoogleStadia) December 20, 2019
Players with access to achievements can view their three most recently earned achievements for the last game played on their profiles, or can examine individual games for more detailed pages and descriptions of the achievements they've earned, or their progress towards earning them. You can also view other player's achievements if they have been made visible to you.
Not all games on Stadia are required to include achievements, and there are not associated points or values for each achievement as there are on Xbox. It's a system more akin to Steam's achievements.
Achievements are available now across Stadia's launch line-up. They're also available in the newly released Stadia versions of Borderlands 3, Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2, and Ghost Recon: Breakpoint.
