They should be displayed in your wardrobe when purchased.

There are issues where your game may suddenly stop accepting your input. At this point, the game will need to be restarted.

If you see this issue, please submit a support ticket with your closest memory of your sequence of actions before you froze.

Achievement progress is not correctly persisting when accessing the same account on different machines, such as from PC to PC, or PC to Switch.

Rest assured: Your Achievements are still there, even if you can’t see them on a specific system.

Players may see an error code “409” when adding friends to their friends list.

This is due to players having more than 200 friends or pending friends. We’re working on adjusting this error to be more communicative.

It’s a little inconsistent when this appears, so make sure you’re submitting tickets if this happens to you!
