    This achievement is to play the game 28 days after you first started the game. If you want this right away, simply sign off of xbox live but stay on your profile and make it so you have no connection to xbox live at all.

    Once you are signed off of xbox live but still signed into your profile follow this:
    Guide Button > Settings > System Settings > Console Settings > Clock > Date and Time.

    Once you are in date and time, just put the date exactly 1 month after, then start up the game. The achievement should unlock right away.


    If you want to get this the 'legit' way, simply wait 28 days then put your game into your xbox and play the game. Again, it should unlock right away.

    (Note: The achievement says 28 days AFTER you first started the game, so you might have to play on your 29th day)

    EDIT NOTE: YOU CAN GET THE ACHIEVEMENT ANYDAY AFTER THE 28TH DAY, IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE THE 28TH OR 29TH DAY EXACT, IT CAN BE ANYDAY AFTER IT.

    neeker75I was hoping the game+DLC would take around 28 days to complete. Ended up I've 1240G now, and have to wait till 7th March to get this.

    psychojazzmanI'd like to add that it appears as if it looks at the exact time when you first made the save-file. I was unable to unlock it early in the morning. I took a look at the time stamped on my first achievement, played it 15mins after on the 28th day and it unlocked.

    neeker75Hi psychojazzman, it's something that I've been wondering just earlier today. So it means I won't unlock it this Friday morning. Damn.

    Just confirming that the length of time doesn't matter. I got the achievement much later than 28 days.

    Bought the game mid October in 2011. Stopped playing at the end of the month (lots of good games came out in nov 2011). Just started it up last night (4/2012) and got the achievement.

    Pretty simple and it doesn't really need a solution but if you are wondering what to do I'll tell you. So once you load up the game and begin playing (Make sure you're able to take control of your character and quit out by pressing cn_start then cn_Y). Make sure to check that it says continue game now and that's it you're set to go and the timer starts. Either play the game and work on other achievements or hold off on it for 28 days, do whatever you want. Once it's been 28 days (Real days), load the game back up and the achievement will pop.

    You don't actually have to play the game, just load the game up is enough for it to pop. If it doesn't pop, try loading the game up all the way to where you press Continue. Press Continue and that should do it. If that's still not enough, wait a couple days because maybe you counted wrong.

    Also, this doesn't have to be 28 days without playing or 28 days in a row of playing.
