UPDATE: Due to us being so organized, the deadline for Achievement April has been pushed back to 11:59 PM PST on Friday, March 25th. This contest is still only open to continental U.S. residents (sorry) and we hope you’re all looking forward to it!
It may be March 1st, but that doesn’t mean that plans for April can’t begin! For the first time ever we will be celebrating the month of April with achievements. What is Achievement April? Well, I’m glad you asked!
For the entire month of April, those of you who choose to participate in this, will have your achievements/trophies monitored. The top 3 participants who earn the most achievements during the month will win prizes. Sounds easy, right? Not only will you all boost your gamerscore in the process, but you’ll also be able to 100% some of those games in your collection that are starting to accumulate dust. Sounds like a win/win situation, no?
Registration for Achievement April begins today and ends at 11:59 PM PST March 20th, giving us plenty of time to begin to track you all. We will be using services like Raptr and other sites to tally and follow how each of you progress, and we will never ask for any of your personal account information. All that we’ll need are your online handles and what console they go to. Gamers with multiple consoles are allowed to participate as points across all platforms will count and go towards your overall score.
To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line of “Achievement April.” In the email be sure to include your name, your contact email, and your online handles. If there are games where you haven’t received achievements for the multiplayer portions, feel free to leave a comment below with your online handles and a list of the games so that other members of the community can add you and you all can work together.
The contest will begin Friday, April 1st at 12:01 AM PST and will go until 11:59 PM PST Saturday, April 30th. The prizes we have to give away will be announced on April 1st, and the winners will be announced on May 10th, allowing us enough time to go through everything.
Good luck to everybody!
Note: As of right now, only PlayStation 3, Steam, and Xbox 360 gamers can participate. Also, only U.S. residents are eligible to win due to shipping prices. Should anything change there will be a formal announcement.
