TA Playlist is live for August 2020 with Child of Light

By The TA Playlist Team,
After spending the previous month running, jumping and vaulting your way through the bright dystopian setting of Mirror’s Edge, prepare yourself to visit a strange new kingdom and fight the bosses scattered around the land in the chosen game for August: Child of Light.

Child of Light

The story takes us on the coming-of-age journey of Aurora, the daughter of a duke, who is transported to Lemuria. Identified as a Child of Light and granted the power of flight, Aurora must fight the dark creatures of the Queen of the Night on her quest to save the sun, the moon and the stars.

Child of Light currently has a score of 4.27/5.00 and will take around 12-15 hours to complete. As there are two stacks of Child of Light, you can play either the Xbox One version or the Xbox 360 version. Popping an achievement in either would count towards your Playlist badge.

It narrowly won the vote with 565 votes (32.66%), with Cuphead a mere 31 votes behind with 534 votes. Just over 127,000 people have Child of Light on their tag, with around 25,000 having completed it. It was previously one of the games given away via the Games With Gold program.

For those planning on starting the game, be aware that there is a discontinued achievement.

Once again, the TA Playlist team would like to remind you that this whole monthly event is about the community coming together to enjoy playing and discussing the game the community has chosen to play, it’s not about completions. Although Child of Light has a discontinued achievement, it is still a community favourite (and wouldn’t have won the vote if this weren’t the case) so will be this month’s Playlist game. If you do not wish to start a game with a discontinued achievement, you can still participate and earn progress towards your Playlist badge by commenting in the Playlist discussion forums.

If at any point you are stuck or want the most efficient path for navigating the game, all the achievements are covered in the TA Child of Light walkthrough, written by AxGryndr with a couple of other contributors.

So let’s get right to it!

Remember to join us in the TA Playlist Hub to share your adventure and earn some TA Playlist credit in the process, or, as always, you can also participate by popping an achievement in either version of the game. Thanks for playing!

The TA Playlist is a monthly community event. Everyone votes on which of four games to play, and then we all play through it in the following month. There's a dedicated hub to discuss everything about the game, from story beats to gameplay tips – and of course, you can track your achievement progress during the month as well. TA Playlist was created by Mark Delaney and is now run by Miles, Nici and Chewie.
