It is that time again! Time for the first Achievements Breakdown of 2015!

As always, feel free to scroll down to see the complete list of achievements and secret achievements for Dying Light. They are in ascending order of gamerscore and for the first time ever, it seems, developer Techland has released the GamerScore and Trophy values together!

So starting off, with twenty 5G achievements, you can pretty much guarantee yourselves that amount of gamerscore. 5G achievements are often just throwaway achievements and will not require that much effort.

Other than that large amount of 5G achievements, the rest of the list will actually take you a lot of time. You will have to complete the game on the hardest difficulty to get a lot of the achievements. Nightmare mode sounds just like it is described, a nightmare. There are also a lot of time constraint achievements which means after your initial playthrough, you will probably be asked to play through it again to get all of those objectives.

Along with objectives and certain requirements, this achievement list has you kill zombies in a variety of ways so make sure you check the achievements and get specialty kills out of the way.

It also appears that this achievement list is very co-op centered. The list requires you to complete the game on co-op as well as complete every side of objective specifically meant for co-op so if you have a friend who is also playing, Id recommend doing all of that stuff in conjunction with your single player action.

There are collectibles, time constraints, killing constraints and a myriad of co-op achievements to get in this list and this certainly was never meant to be an easy achievement list. I mean there is even an achievement that requires you to survive for at least 100 hours. Be prepared for this to take a while.

After a quick estimation, it appears most players, assuming they are going for specialty kills and achievements, will get about 700 gamerscore on their first run through (without co-op achievements and assuming you start on nightmare mode and not any other difficulty) and will require you to run through a few more times to get the rest of the gamerscore.

It is worth noting here that while the achievement list looks difficult and tedious, it really only is time consuming. Most of the more difficult constraints will just take you some time to carefully plan out your moves and the time constraint achievements really just come once you have mastered the game and can run through it as fast as possible.

Good luck my fellow achievement hunters and make sure to pace yourselves. This game will probably take around 200 hours to complete and remember that you don’t have to tackle this all at once.
