First look at Microsoft's gorgeous new Xbox avatars (exclusive)
Microsoft has been working on new Xbox avatars for quite a while, having teased them several months ago.
They're nearly ready for prime time as part of the Fall Creators Update for Xbox One, and we got an early look. If you're in the Xbox Alpha Ring, you'll notice that there's a new "Xbox Avatar Editor" app, that's listed but currently inaccessible. Well, we got a look at the Windows 10 version of the new Avatar Editor interface and some of the editing options. Here's what to expect! Note that this is a work in progress running on a Windows 10 PC, rather than Xbox One. The app is built using Unity3D and is capable of running across all Universal Windows Platform (UWP) compatible Windows 10 devices. It's certainly early days for the app, but the new Xbox avatars are unquestionably beautiful, full of detail, vibrant art, and expressive animations.
