Avatars are finally coming to Xbox One with the next major update, and now we’ve got our first look at how the cartoony player stand-ins will work on Microsoft’s latest console.
Xbox Live director of programming Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb and Microsoft?s program manager Richard Irving show off the updated graphics and new animations for the Avatars, which will be introduced alongside a UI overhaul and Xbox 360 backward compatibility as part of the New Xbox One Experience.
Players familiar with the Xbox app on Windows 10 devices will recognize the updated Avatar menu. Players can create and customize the virtual characters, which appear in Community areas and can take the place of profile pictures.
The New Xbox One Experience update arrives on November 12th.
