The full rundown of Achievements for the Xbox 360 version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has hit the net. The standard of 1000 Gamerscore will be spread across 50 Achievements. The list below indicates the level system, a few of the game’s mechanics and the titles of missions or chapters.

Consider everything below this line of text to be spoiler-tastic. Don’t go cruising into the land of Achievements unless you’re fine with learning plot points that indicate length, theme and chapter names.

Here is the full list of Achievements sourced by Xbox360Achievements.org and formatted by the fine folks at VG247.

Maybe it’s just me, but I’d much rather see a list of Achievements that are bit more creative. Especially in a game as massive as Skyrim is set to be, it would have been nice to be challenged with a few unique gaming opportunities.

I love when games force me to play outside of their standards with the Achievement requirements. In Valve‘s Left 4 Dead 2, for example, one Achievement had gamers escort a lawn gnome from the level’s start to its finish. Why? Because it added a twist to the gameplay.

Why not have players cook a Thanksgiving feast, pick a fight with a religious authority, sneak up on a dragon or kill themselves with poison?

Regardless, Skyrim still looks stunning. The game will ship for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms on November 11th.
