Thanks to Skyrim you'll soon be able to add "dragon slayer," "woodcutter," and "life-long learner" to your achievement list resume.

It seems that you can't be a triple A title anymore without your achievement list leaking onto the internet. The latest "victim" is the newest Elder Scrolls game, Skyrim. The list obviously contains some mild spoilers, but as is often the case with this sort of thing, they're rather minor.

The full list is as follows:

  • Unbound (10) - Complete "Unbound"
  • Bleak Falls Barrow (10) - Complete "Bleak Falls Barrow"
  • The Way of the Voice (20) - Complete "The Way of the Voice"

  • Revealing the Unseen (10) - Complete "Revealing the Unseen"
  • The Eye of Magnus (30) - Complete "The Eye of Magnus"
  • Taking Care of Business (10) - Join the Thieves Guild
  • Darkness Returns (10) - Complete "Darkness Returns"
  • One with the Shadows (30) - Returned the Thieves Guild to its former glory
  • With Friends Like These... (10) - Join the Dark Brotherhood
  • Bound Until Death (10) - Complete "Bound Until Death"
  • Hail Sithis! (30) - Complete "Hail Sithis!"
  • Taking Sides (10) - Join the Stormcloaks or the Imperial Army
  • War Hero (10) - Capture Fort Sungard or Fort Greenwall
  • Hero of Skyrim (30) - Capture Solitude or Windhelm
  • Sideways (20) - Complete 10 side quests
  • Hero of the People (30) - Complete 50 Misc Objectives
  • Hard Worker (10) - Chop wood, mine ore, and cook food
  • Thief (30) - Pick 50 locks and 50 pockets
  • Snake Tongue (10) - Successfully persuade, bribe, and intimidate
  • Blessed (10) - Select a Standing Stone blessing
  • Standing Stones (30) - Find 13 Standing Stones
  • Citizen (10) - Buy a house
  • Wanted (10) - Escape from jail
  • Married (10) - Get married
  • Artificer (10) - Make a smithed item, an enchanted item, and a potion
  • Master Criminal (20) - Bounty of 1000 gold in all nine holds
  • Golden Touch (30) - Have 100,000 gold
  • Delver (40) - Clear 50 dungeons
  • Skill Master (40) - Get a skill to 100
  • Explorer (40) - Discover 100 Locations
  • Reader (20) - Read 50 Skill Books
  • Daedric Influence (10) - Acquire a Daedric Artifact
  • Oblivion Walker (30) - Collect 15 Daedric Artifacts
  • Dragon Soul (10) - Absorb a dragon soul
  • Dragon Hunter (20) - Absorb 20 dragon souls
  • Words of Power (10) - Learn all three words of a shout
  • Thu'um Master (40) - Learn 20 shouts
  • Apprentice (5) - Reach Level 5
  • Adept (10) - Reach Level 10
  • Expert (25) - Reach Level 25
  • Master (50) - Reach Level 50

What's interesting about the list is that it's a lot closer to Fallout 3's achievement list than it is to Oblivion's. It also seems - and I'm assuming that if you've read this far you're not worried about minor spoilers - that you will have to choose a side at some point in the game as well. I really like the fact that there are rewards available for a wider range of activities than in Oblivion. You get points for exploring and tackling dungeons, for example, quite independent of any quest awards you might receive.

Skyrim comes out for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on November 11th.

Seems like a standard list for a game such as this.

The achievements for the army and rebels excites me. We may finally have some control over the story.

If the Steam version of the game features achievements, I will probably end up getting all of them. Like I did with Oblivion (on xbox) and would have done with Morrowind, probably, if achievements had been a thing back then.

Anyhow, im glad to see theres a good amount of factions. Not so pumped for the army and rebels thing. I mean, yeah, choice and all, but remember the main quest in New Vegas? That gave you a similar choice and the whole thing just ended up feeling shallow and pointless.

Nice to see there is a healthy list of achievements in the game. Though, I am not a fan of missions having achievements attached to them unless they are side missions. For instance, the common achievement for just starting a new game, well, those are dumb. They should be something to seek out, not something you get along the way just because.

Does the Master Criminal achievement pretty much confirm that there are 9 major cities?

Was that common knowledge before?

I hate those obvious achievements, actually i dont like achievements in games at all.
I rather discover all that stuff by myself i do not want pop-ups or mentions of it while i play.
I was perfectly fine with the tab in my oblivion and Morrowind character screen showing me what i did and did not do.
Made the mistake of looking at my Deus Ex:HR achievement list before i was even 1/3 through the game, that spoiled some fun for me.
It gives it to much of an 'arcade-feel'. That's not a bad thing in some games, but it is to me in games that tend to have a more serious atmosphere.

The achievements for this game is much better than those of Oblivion, here at least we have more than "complete main story, complete expansion and complete guilds"

Does anyone know whether or not this will translate into trophies for PS3 (the way Oblivion's achievements didn't)?

I don't see why it wouldn't.

Every new game on the PS3 has trophies now, so I would expect them to be the same (with the addition of the 'collect all trophies' platinum, on the PS3).

This looks like a neat 100% completion for me.

And I can't wait. 38 days to go.

Yay, another 100% game for my list :)

Seriously >.> Oblivion was dead easy to get.
so Yay for more challenge (if only a little bit)

Learn 20 shouts
if a shout is 3 parts and you need 1 soul for each part
does that mean that there is are 60 dragons if not more!?

holy crap... that's a LOT of dragons

I remember reading that there are an unlimited amount of dragons in the game, so you won't be having to crawl every inch of the map looking for the last one

I'm going to try and get every single one of those.
Doesn't look too hard, actually...

Me hopes choosing sides doesn't necessarily = moral choice system.

You are aware that you can turn off achievement notifications, right?

there are UNLIMITIED DRAGONNS!!!!!!!!

yay I might just 100% this oh and it looks like there is going to be more choice in the story

Wait, you can actually chose sides in the main quest?

Are you sure this game is being made by Bethesda?

Very much this. Achievements can be a nice idea when done properly, but I just don't see the point of having "achievements" that don't actually require you to achieve anything. Simply playing the game is not an achievement.

Complete this, Find all of that, Get to this level, yada yada yada...

Seems pretty unextraordinary if you ask me.

WAIT, YOU CAN GET MARRIED!
TAKE MY MONEY NOW!

I skimmed them because I didn't want to many spoilers but I'm glad the Dark Brotherhood is back along with the Thieves guild.

I don't wanna know, I don't wanna know, I don't wanna knooooooooow!!!!! XD
Much like Susan said in the last podcast (#15, IIRC), I want to go into this game as fresh as possible. ^_^

>Level cap of 50 confirmed

Good to hear about this, combined with the achievement list makes it a good news dump.

Not true, you can move on beyond 50, but it's at a vastly reduced pace.

Look under the 'gameplay' heading.

My mistake then, but still awesome news that there's high levels to reach.

It makes the desire to stop and start over at a whim less likely.
