According to estimates, it will take between 20 and 25 hours to unlock all 46 of Control‘s base achievements. Most of the list looks pretty manageable, though there are a lot of collectables you’ll need to find, and the Master Parautilitarian achievement will have you complete all of the game’s side missions. Be sure to check out St3phosaurus‘ excellent Control walkthrough. Control will also leave PC Game Pass where it has a separate Windows achievement list.
The Medium should take you less than ten hours to complete, though you will need to look out for some missable achievements on your playthrough. While most are pretty straightforward, there are loads of collectables you’ll need to find, and if you miss one, you’ll need to replay the game again to unlock certain achievements. If you haven’t started The Medium and you want that 1,000G, we recommend playing while following our The Medium walkthrough (written by CitrineWorm138), which details where to find those pesky collectables.
Final Fantasy: XII The Zodiac Age
If you haven’t started Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, you’d better get your skates on as estimates suggest it will take between 80 and 100 hours to unlock all 40 of its achievements. The game has some pretty grindy and difficult achievements with Mist Walker, Imperator, Scrivener, Hunter Extraordinaire, and Cartographer. We have a fantastic Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age Walkthrough (written by xDaff) available too, so be sure to check it out if you’re going for the completion. Once you’ve got the console list out of the way, you’ll then be able to make your way through the Windows version of Final Fantasy XII, which has its own separate achievement list.
The Falconeer will take around 15 to 20 hours to complete, according to estimates on site. There are loads of high-ratio achievements on offer here — out of the 32,000 that have this one on their tag, just 536 (2%) have completed it. This is largely down to a fair few of The Falconeer’s achievements being broken at launch and some of them just being a pain to complete. Be sure to check out a few of the guides (especially for the Steel Surgeon achievement) if you’re looking to grab the full 1,000G,
Project Winter currently has one discontinued achievement, though the devs are aware of it and a fix is on the way. With the fixed achievement, it will take you between 20 and 25 hours to complete the multiplayer survival game’s base list. Finishing Project Winter is a pretty tough ask if you’re a solo player, so it might be worth looking for other like-minded individuals to boost this one with.
Code Vein has an achievement list that will swallow up between 60 and 80 hours of your time, according to estimates. The action-RPG requires you to play through the game three times to see all of its endings, which can be quite the chore if you’re not feeling it. Thankfully, HappyTheDevil has written a superb Code Vein walkthrough that will make things easier. Code Vein also has a separate Windows achievement list that’s also leaving PC Game Pass on the same date.
All of these games will drop out of Xbox Game Pass on February 15th.
Microsoft also announced which games are coming to Xbox Game Pass over the next two weeks, including Contrast, Besiege, Edge of Eternity, and more.
