Just when you thought it was safe to stop playing…

Bungie have released their latest weekly update and it comes as no surprise to see a reply to the major rumour. As we expected, new achievements will be added to Halo 3. Bungie have confirmed the following achievements will be appearing in the game and can be unlocked via the Legendary Maps and the Campaign mode:

• Vidmaster Challenge: Lightswitch (0 points) – Get to the rank of Lieutenant in any playlist in the new EXP progression system.
• Vidmaster Challenge: 7 on 7 (0 points) – Enter into any ranked or social playlist with 7 EXP on the 7th of the month.
• Vidmaster Challenge: Annual (0 points) – After 9/25/08, complete Halo on 4-player Legendary LIVE co-op, with Iron, and everyone in Ghosts.
• Double Double (25 points) – On a Legendary map, get two Double Kills during any ranked or social match.

As you can see, this adds 10 achievements worth 250 GamerScore. Bungie confirmed more achievements are on the way saying: “These aren’t the only achievements we’re adding. But without proper context, there’s not a whole lot else we’re going to say.” The achievements will arrive alongside Title Update 2. Judging by the achievement description, this will arrive around Thursday 25th September 2008. More details on TU2 can be found here.
