See in the New Year with Batman or Master Chief

By Rebecca Smith, 21 days ago
The last few days have been quite busy for date-specific achievements. There was one on Christmas Eve, then there were six more achievements on Christmas Day. If you thought that would be it for a while, then you would be wrong, because three of those achievements make another appearance on New Year's Day, January 1st. If you're not nursing a hangover tomorrow, perhaps you could pop in one of the following two games to get these achievements.

Calendar Man

First, you'll want to head into Batman: Arkham City to pay another visit to Calendar Man. Calendar Man can be found in the basement of the Solomon Wayne Courthouse. You gain access to the Courthouse near the beginning of the game. If you visit him, he'll tell you a story and you can cross off another of those 12 murderous dates needed for the following achievement:

Batman: Arkham CityStorytellerThe Storyteller achievement in Batman: Arkham City worth 41 pointsHave 12 murderous dates with Calendar Man

Batman: Arkham City (Xbox 360)StorytellerThe Storyteller achievement in Batman: Arkham City (Xbox 360) worth 28 pointsHave 12 murderous dates with Calendar Man

Batman: Arkham City (PC)StorytellerThe Storyteller achievement in Batman: Arkham City (PC) worth 38 pointsHave 12 murderous dates with Calendar Man

The other two achievements are from Halo: The Master Chief Collection. By entering Halo 3's Valhalla map in Forge mode, in a custom game or in multiplayer matchmaking, you can view a Make Love Not War sigil and you can cross off one of the two different sigils needed for the following achievement:

Halo: The Master Chief CollectionElder SignsThe Elder Signs achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection worth 40 pointsHalo 3: View 2 different sigils on Valhalla.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection (CN)Elder SignsThe Elder Signs achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection (CN) worth 30 pointsHalo 3: View 2 different sigils on Valhalla.

If you then load up the Zanzibar map in Halo 2 in Forge mode, in a custom game or in multiplayer matchmaking, you can take a look at the sign on the beach for a special Baby Shark (doo doo doo doo doo doo) message. As you only need to view a single seasonal sign, you'll unlock the following achievement immediately:

Halo: The Master Chief CollectionDestination VacationThe Destination Vacation achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection worth 35 pointsHalo 2: View one of the seasonal signs on Zanzibar in classic multiplayer.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection (CN)Destination VacationThe Destination Vacation achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection (CN) worth 29 pointsHalo 2: View one of the seasonal signs on Zanzibar in classic multiplayer.

After this, the rest of the month is fairly quiet with just a single date-specific achievement in three weeks' time. We'll be sure to remind you about this nearer the date. You can either keep your eyes peeled to TA's front page for the article, or subscribe to the Achievement Reminders news category to receive PMs or e-mails every time we remind you about those achievements.
