How to Fix Achievement not Unlocking Xbox in Hades

To fix the achievements not unlocking Xbox issue in Hades, first of all, don’t use the Quick Resume option. That seems to be what’s causing the issue, and the information has been corroborated by a number of players on social media. It seems that it even happens when you go back to the home screen while playing, but definitely avoid Quick Resume. The good news is that the devs are well-aware of the problem and are working on a fix. Plus, those achievements are not lost, they just didn’t pop up.

Now, that’s all well and good, but what can you do to make the achievements appear before the developers put out a patch? Well, first off, exit the game completely, as in use the Menu button, scroll down to Quit, and click it. Next, turn off the console (Settings > Power mode & start-up > Full shut-down). Then, turn the console back on and boot up Hades. To fix the Hades Achievements not unlocking Xbox bug fully, load your save after getting into the game. All the achievements that you’ve earned but haven’t appeared should pop up at that moment.

Mind you, this solution might not work for everybody. If worst comes to worst, you might have to go through the process of earning the achievements over again. It’s a bummer, certainly, but at least the game is absolutely good enough to warrant playing over again to get those trophies. Also, on a personal note: I hope that this issue doesn’t discourage you from playing Hades. It’s absolutely the best game to come out last year, and I strongly encourage you to not give up on it.
