There s perhaps no greater a testament to your video game accomplishments than the achievement, or the digital adornments that pervade gaming platforms large and small.
And that s likely why the Facebook-owned Oculus, makers of the eponymous Oculus Rift virtual reality headset for PC, felt compelled to adopt the concept in their own way.
On Wednesday, the social network s VR division announced the addition of in-game achievements for both Samsung s Gear VR smartphone headset and the higher-end, tethered Rift.
Over the next few weeks, Gear VR and Rift users will begin seeing achievements for blockbuster titles like Minecraft and Hitman Go, plus support in lesser-known titles like Anshar Wars 2.
If you ve satisfied an achievements criteria prior to the update, you ll earn it retroactively.
They ll appear in both Oculus Home, the Oculus headset companion app for smartphones and PC, and as part of an overlay in games that tap into the new framework.
