Has everyone seen the new look Xbox Game Pass Quests?
Appears to be live now. I can confirm I can see it in the Android Game Pass app.
To sum up, there are loads more quests for you to earn reward points on. With daily, weekly and monthly challenges, there should always be something for you to do. Also some of the quests involve certain in-game challenges rather than just earn x number of achievements
Daily quests seem to consist of quick challenges; play any game, log into the app
Weekly is a mix of getting achievements, doing challenges in-game and completing daily quests
Monthly are game specific achievements and in-game challenges and a big 1000 point challenge for completing 45 daily and 15 weekly quests
Would love to hear thoughts and opinions on this. Is it better, worse, or a mixed bag?
I like this change. More quests means more point. More points means more freebies. I am totally gonna milk this new quests program, I play every day as it is, so it should get a lot of points without trying.
I have two issues however.
It feels like a very obvious way to make you want to do stuff every single day. Doing 45 daily quests in a month means doing two daily quests at least 15 days out of the month (more in this month of 29 days and late start). Although they might give more than two a day in future, who knows. Still, feels like the daily log in bonus from free-to-play games.
Secondly, The monthly game specific quests, there is less choice of games. currently I am seeing seven games tied specifically to quests. Before we had a bigger variety. On the announcement, the say "Our goal with the Quests program is to help you discover and try new games" But is seems to me like they are encouraging that less than before.
I would also point out that the seven games are mostly bigger productions. I really liked the ID highlights before
