Dev Blog #93: Achievements & Trading Cards

We return from the holidays with our first dev blog this year. As announced in our roadmap to the finish line, Battle Brothers is about to receive Steam achievements and trading cards. Let’s take a look at both this week while we continue to work hard on the late game crises we’ve talked about last time. Onwards!

Steam Achievements

You may have already spotted some Steam achievements for Battle Brothers popping up over the last few weeks - that’s because we’ve been testing them. There’s currently a total of 70 achievements in the game, although that number may still change slightly in either direction. We wanted the achievements to be a good mix between short and long term challenges, some more serious and some more fun, as well as some rewarding the natural progression as you play the game. Here’s a few examples of different achievements you’ll be able to unlock once the next update is live.

Swingin'

Kill 3 enemies with one AoE attack.

Who Let The Dogs Out?

Kill an enemy with a wardog.

How To Berserk

Kill an Orc Berserker in melee while high on mushrooms.

Outgunned

Kill a Goblin Overseer with a ranged weapon.

King Of The Hill

Defeat another mercenary company.

Explorer

Uncover 2/3 of the map.

Campaigner

Reach day 100 on veteran difficulty or higher.

Never Give Up

Lose 10 campaigns in Ironman mode.

Bane Of The Undead

Defeat the Undead Scourge at any difficulty level.

Trading Cards

Battle Brothers is also about to receive some Steam trading cards with the upcoming update. Each trading card is for one of the different types of factions currently in the game - the Mercenaries, the Noble Houses, the Bandits, the Ancient Dead, the Undead, the Goblins and the Orcs.

The full-sized trading cards show the faction with their selection of banners and a variety of units with different gear in wallpaper format. Of course, you’ll also be able to unlock badges, profile backgrounds and emoticons.

Is steam somehow pressuring developers to create this useless things like achievements and trading cards?

Thank You for developing this game. If you stuck to your original aim and gave legs and full anim to your characters I would NOT be developing my fantasy RPG today. I would be playing yours.

Thank You guys for the motivation!!
