ACHIEVEMENTS 2.0

The achievements system has been rebuilt from the ground up. But don’t worry as the original achievements that were there in the 1.0 Achievements system are all still functional, just like before.

The new system comes with 300+ new in-game achievements for players to discover and complete. These achievements are not tied to your Google Play/Game Center login.With new achievements come new rewards for a fresh experience.

The Achievements Tab has been moved to the far left in the DPG Icon interface. You can access it by selecting the Icon in the top right corner of the main HUB.

Achievements are separated into 5 categories indicating what part of the game they can be found in. A filter system can be used to view one or more categories of achievements at the same time.


TUTORIAL 2.0

For new players the tutorial has been re-coded completely with a smoother flow and revamped order.
Claire and Owen are still the stars of this show and they continue to do their utmost at helping new DPG members get their bearings and get Jurassic.


IMPROVED PROFILES

Profiles have been made over! Enjoy a sleek new layout, designed to showcase DPG progress and team creatures:

  • Keep track of the Badges you collect by tapping on your profile picture edit button, or access the Recently Collected Badges section to see your latest accomplishments.
    • Want a Badge your friend has? Tap the Badges displayed in the Recently Collected Badges section of their profile to find out how it can be collected.
  • You may also track the Titles you collect by tapping on your Title edit button. Show off your DPG experience by personalizing your profile!


BADGES & PROFILE PICTURES

Show off your DPG accomplishments with Badges! Collect a variety of Badges by completing certain Events and Achievements. Once a Badge is collected it can even be used as your profile picture.

Not to worry nostalgic DPG members! Previous Icons can still be used as profile pictures.

Once a Title is collected it can be added to your profile. Access your profile and select 1 Title to represent you.

As much as this doesn’t have any new creatures, this looks like an awesome update that maybe will revive parts of the game a little bit.

But where’s my Monolometrodon nerf :sob:

quite a small update. but 300+ new achievements that give more rewards is cool.
and it looks like the interface got a bit of a revamp. new profile images and titles.
not quite a QoL update, but it’s something. a bit of personal customization

This isn’t even a update. Couldn’t you added this like blood?

Well then, kinda bummed out about no creatures, but other stuff like the new achievements and profile things seems nice, but really hoped for more since the last update was so small

Wow…what a disappointing update.
Most of us expected massive creature balancing, but instead everything remains the same.
Only good thing is the tons of new achievements we’ll be getting.

Consider that last update as supposedly small but they gave at least some new creatures; this basically a worse update :joy:

So there’s nothing bad about this update, but there doesn’t seem to be much impacting the game this update either. I guess this isn’t the update where we get “bigger and more exciting things”.

Honestly, couldn’t Ludia have just combined this into the 2.4 update? Two small updates in a row isn’t very exciting.
