Hitchhiker Title Update Brings New Areas, Transport, and Achievements

By Rebecca Smith, 5 months ago
Hitchhiker (Win 10) has recently received a second free title update that brings along a fair amount of new content and extra achievements. Amongst the content added is new areas, new modes of transport, points of interest, and a time trial mode.

Title Update 2

Once players reach level 20, they'll be able to access the new area: old town. The old town lies to the east of the main city. To the south of old town is also a new park area providing a more peaceful alternative to the busy city. When exploring the city, points of interest are displayed on the map as statues and allow players to get closer to some significant city landmarks. Because the map has increased in size so much, there are now two trains that circle the map. If you need to travel a large distance, perhaps consider finding a nearby train station — they're found in all areas of the map. There are also helicopters that can be found at heliports.

Finally, there's a new time trial mode that tasks players with delivering as many passengers as possible before time runs out. Every time a passenger is successfully delivered, time is extended. There will also be time pickups along the way. Your final grade relies entirely on how many passengers are delivered, so don't waste too much time messing around.

The title update adds 12 achievements worth a total of 500 Gamerscore, 1 of which is secret (to reveal the details of the secret achievement, please use this link). You can find guides to unlocking these achievements as soon as we have them on the Hitchhiker (Win 10) Achievements page.
