Xbox Avatars Receive Visual Overhaul And Oft-Requested Wheelchair Option
Mike Ybarra, a 15-year Microsoft employee who now serves as the Partner Director of Program Management for the Xbox platform chimed in on the conversation with a sneak peek of two new avatars, a male and female, both in a wheelchair with flag attached sporting the Xbox logo. Here's a look at them both side-by-side.
As for trying to guess when the new avatars and system update might arrive, probably the most likely scenario is the Anniversary update for Xbox Live, which is scheduled to go out later this summer. Among the new additions coming with the Anniversary update will be a Play Anywhere feature that allows gamers to buy supported titles for either Xbox One or PC and receive a free copy for the other platform.
