"Achievements have made ship in fact." said Erickson. "They're not going to be the crazy achievements that you have to place everywhere, that are like, 'Hey if you drink 6 beers and fart in a cantina,'"
It doesn't look like this will be the only set of achievements we see in the MMO, as Erickson explains that a second tier of achievements will be added sometime after Star Wars: The Old Republic launches.
“Those are not the only achievements to go in. Version one of the achievement system (will) go in, which is actually doing big, heroic stuff, because there's a ton of great optional content in The Old Republic."
Star Wars: The Old Republic launches for the PC on 22nd December in Europe.
