Remember Avatars, Xbox’s answer to the uber-popular Miis of yesteryear? Well, at E3 2017, Microsoft revealed that they’re coming back, and this time with a ton of expanded customization options. Revamped Avatars will launch on Xbox One this fall, and you can get a quick taste of what’s to come with a new trailer.
It looks like the cartoon representations of our digital selves will be quite a bit more varied both in what they can do and how they look. There’s accommodations for various disabilities including wheelchairs and prosthetic limbs, a wider gamut of body shapes, new costumes and accessories, the ability to change your color pallette – even the ability to make your Avatar pregnant.
Who knows how much the Avatars will play into your Xbox One profile; the current dashboard isn’t like the Xbox 360 where we saw them constantly. Still, more options seems like a good thing, and I’m happy people will be able to represent themselves in new ways when the feature hits.
