The next big update to Landmark will bring a major update to progression, and that means a major update to how the game’s achievements work. You earn achievements to get big stat boosts, which allow you to progress to more difficult content and earn bigger and better achievements. The achievements are based on a combination of major “layers,” which are generally required to survive more difficult content, and smaller, weapon-based, achievements which award useful but not absolutely vital stat boosts.
In addition to the funky new progress system, the update will include an overhauled tutorial, a variety of other achievements for more amusing accomplishments, and an overhaul to the recipe tracker. Take a look at the full rundown on the official site to see how the game is letting your character get stronger… or just keep crafting. Whatever you’d like to do.[Source: Upcoming Achievement/Progression Changes]
