The latest Xbox update lets you unlock hidden gains

The new feature isn’t just exclusive to Xbox consoles either. PC users playing a game on PC Game Pass or from the Microsoft Store can also reveal hidden achivements through the Game Bar (Windows Key + G or the Xbox button on your controller). You can also review achivements on the Xbox app on Android and iOS. The update puts the Xbox platform in line with PlayStation, which has had the feature as far back as 2016. Just remember to use it sparingly, often times developers hide achivements to protect you from story spoilers. Still, it’s nice to have that choice.

Story Highlights

  • This month’s Xbox dashboard update will allow you to expose the specifics of secret accomplishments, which is great news for achievement hunters. This should save completionists a lot of time because they won’t have to rely on Google to discover that one bothersome accomplishment that haunts your dreams. Simply open the Xbox Guide from within a game and go to Game Activity, then Achievements to uncover the secret details. After that, all you have to do is locate the accomplishment you want to unhide and manually pick it.
