Christmas and New Year Achievement Reminders

By Rebecca Smith, 1 year ago
Christmas day and New Years day aren't just a time for celebrations with family and friends. They're also two days where you can get a number of date-specific achievements. So that you don't forget about them, we've compiled a list of those that can be unlocked on one or both of those days.

Before we begin with those, though, lets start with an achievement that must be earned on December 24th, Christmas Eve. There's nothing that screams "getting into the Christmas spirit" more than burgling somebody's house in The Swindle. For this one, players must get 100% loot collected from a house in The Slums.

Next up is one of two date-specific achievements in Saw 2: Flesh & Blood. This one requires players to merely play the game on December 25th.

The next game, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, has two achievements, both of which have opportunities to unlock them on both December 25th and January 1st. The first of these requires players to view two different sigils on the Valhalla map in Halo 3. On December 25th, players will be greeted by a Christmas light. On January 1st, you'll see the "Make Love Not War" slogan.

The second achievement in this game requires players to view a signpost on the Zanzibar map in Halo 2. The next few days present two opportunities to get this achievement. On December 25th, players will see a reference to a Soffish. On January 1st, you'll be looking at a shark instead.

Our final game, Batman: Arkham City (Xbox 360), requires players to visit Calendar Man on 12 different dates spread throughout the year. December 25th and January 1st are two of those dates. Make sure that you remember both of them to be able to work your way towards the following:

Happy holidays and have a great New Year!
