Poll: which Xbox Hall of Fame Trial will you be focusing on?

By Heidi Nicholas,
The Xbox Hall of Fame contest is underway, and you've got a number of chances to get your name in those hallowed halls. For this week's poll, we want to know: which Xbox Trial will you be focusing on?

Xbox

So, the Xbox Hall of Fame contest is split up into several different categories and trials. Each participating country has eight winners, as well as another ten players who will be rewarded for participating with a year of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Chugging along in the back of the contest are the three massive Lifetime Triumphs: Achievement Conqueror, Game Pass Ruler, and Gamerscore Legend. Each of those has a qualifying period of November 22nd 2013 to October 19th 2020. For this week's poll, however, we're focusing on the five Xbox Trials.

The qualifying window for these trials is much shorter, and all are set within October 2020. Four are already underway. Sea of Thieves Legendary Captain ends on October 4th, and you need to earn as much Emissary Value as you can. It's only open to Pirate Legends who are at rank 50 with the Trading Companies.

Xbox Trial

Two other big trials are also underway, but they don't finish for another few weeks. Gamerscore Champion and Achievement Defeater end on October 19th, challenging you to put your Gamerscore and achievement skills to the test. We've got your back on these, so be sure to check our Xbox Hall of Fame leaderboards to track how you're doing. Along with this, you can also check our list of 300 easy Xbox One games to help supercharge your Gamerscore.

The Forza Horizon 4 trial, meanwhile, runs until October 11th, and challenges you to reach the fastest lap on the Hall of Fame Circuit while behind the wheel of the 2018 McLaren Senna, while the Zombie Slayer trial for State of Decay 2 tasks you with clearing plague hearts in a Standard Zone map, and runs until October 18th.

Forza Horizon 4 Achievements

Those all give you a chance to get your name in the Xbox Hall of Fame, along with an Xbox Series X, a year of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and an Xbox Hall of Fame hoodie. Plus, don't forget, you can also earn a bunch of Microsoft Rewards Points. Two Xbox Hall of Fame punch cards run until October 19th: the Xbox Hall of Fame Gamerscore punch card, which earns you one Microsoft Reward Point for every Gamerscore earned (up to a maximum limit of 10,000), and the Xbox Hall of Fame Achievement punch card, with 500 Microsoft Reward points available by earning achievements.

So, let us know by voting in the poll below, and telling us which Xbox Trial you'll be focusing on. Have a good weekend everyone, and happy achievement hunting!

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
