Xbox announced deeper customizations with avatars during the Inside Xbox live stream on Tuesday.
The focus was for avatars to become more inclusive, expressive, and creative for users to be able to further customize.
The new avatar system takes the old one to an entirely different level – it will be called the Xbox Avatar Editor.
Senior Program Manager of Xbox Avatars, Randy Santossio explained where the inspiration came from to make these changes to avatars.
“We agreed very early that we wanted to bring the best parts of the Xbox Original Avatar, add to that expressive goodness, and make it better.”
