Split DLC achievements from main game achievements

Make it so that any achievements from DLCs that you don't own aren't included in the main game achievement list, instead they have separate achievement lists so they do not corrupt completion for games just because you havent bought some DLC.

[Mod Edit: This idea was merged with a similar idea from Milestgs. Thanks everyone!]

    If I knew play station has better way of displaying achievement/trophies I would have bought PS4 instead. Consider switching soon.

    Please update this quickly. If I don't own a specific game content, why would you put achievements of that content in my list. This looks like someone from MS doing a lousy job. But If this your way to attract players to buy DLC, then this even make you look worse. You have smarter people working there, please correct this.

    You don't get shown achievements for games you don't own or haven't played and have it display that you have zero-percent completed, so you likewise shouldn't be shown achievements for DLC you don't own and have it factor in to your overall percentage.

    I would greatly like this, even the option of main game with drop for the others and select box to just include 1 or more dlc's by default.

    This way those that want it all can see it exactly as is, but those of us that might not own dlc can see exactly how many points out of how many are actually available to us. This would be dope.

    Seriously, MS, this needs to happen & should have happened a very long time ago. You practically invented the achievement/trophy idea but yet nearly nothing has been done to achievements at all let alone to distinguish main game achievements apart from DLC achievements. Why should we have to look at achievements for content we dont want to pay extra for? Now I know I'm reaching here & it will never happen but I also feel that multiplayer achievements should also be separated from single player content because not everyone plays the online content in a mainly single player game. Mostly because games that have traditionally been 1 player campaign games usually (not always but mostly) have been garbage. It stinks when we have worked our tail off for every single achievement in a single player game but it doesnt show that way because of the "multiplayer" achievements. In any case please get this done. It cant be that difficult. I mean Sony has had this implemented into it's console for a long while now & it looks so nice & clean. Not to mention made a lot of people happy. Your WAY overdue, Microsoft. Please catch up with the present. Thanks.

    PlayStation does this. You (Microsoft) practically invented the gaming achievement realm, but you've done little to advance it except trying out challenges and app achievements. Which were terrible ideas and I'm glad they are gone. Get this implemented!

    Yes Please include this in the next update and add something like platinum after obtaining the main game 1000 GS Please .

    This should definitly has been done with the new xbox one dashboard. It's always a mess to know which belong to the OG game and what's DLC. Please implement this MS!

    I was shocked to find how awful to navigate xbox one dash is. Then to add insult to injury I saw the appalling achievement menu. I have a ps4 and love the dash on their, I bought the xbox one for back comp as I still have 360 games. What was wrong with the old 360 dash? Sure it needed a polish but not this abortion of a front end.

  • TelDonJuan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes! Great example of pay to play. If I don't want the DLC and work to complete it, I shouldn't have to see the other 1500 GS because I didn't want to shell out another $60 for content that could have been included in the first place. DLC comes out within 3 months now and is just a way to real people in...

  • Wolfie McG commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This should be done already, most people who truly care about achievements would most likely love this.

    why are you not listening xbox devs?, this is a good idea. playstion done a brilliant job of this. let us have what we ask for.

  • mcwizardry commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Voted, great idea. Some games with long achievement lists like Tomb Raider and Forza Horizon 3 would benefit from this.
