Configure achievements

An achievement is a distinction that a player earns for reaching a milestone or performing an action defined by you and programmed into your app. When you configure achievements in App Store Connect, you specify details about the achievement, such as the points earned, whether the achievement is hidden from players before they reach the goal, and whether players can earn the achievement more than once. For each language or region you want the achievement to display in, you specify the achievement Title, Pre-earned Description, and Earned Description to keep users engaged during gameplay. You also specify an image to represent the achievement. You can create up to 100 achievements per app.

For development information, visit Achievements in GameKit.
