The new avatar design features for Xbox have been anticipated with excitement for quite a while. They were supposed to get launched in the Fall of 2017, but they got delayed into 2018 without surprising anyone, frankly. They were supposed to be released back in April, but got delayed again and just when all hope was gone, Insiders get great news because they’re finally here.

Xbox Insiders get new Avatars

When the avatars were not announced during the E3 press conference fans got extremely worried that they won’t make it anytime soon even though Microsoft kept assuring everyone that the avatars are on their way. But, don’t freak out because they’re finally here. The new avatar editor was announced in a post on Xbox website yesterday.

Xbox Insiders get the new and enhanced avatars to allow players to celebrate their own diversity in the community. Every Insider is unique, and personalizing avatars should be more than fun.

The avatars are not quite ready for launch just yet but this does not mean that Insiders will not get the chance to enjoy a few customization options, for the time being, they will be able to use more accessories, moods, props, and also appearance categories in the upcoming weeks as well. After that, more and more content will be added on a regular basis after they become available to everyone.

For the moment, only the Xbox Editor app is turned on, and we’ll just have to be patient and wait some more for the dashboard integration. The app will be first available for Alpha and Alpha-Skip Ahead members before it gets to roll out to more Insiders.

Self-expression is also important for the Xbox Avatars and Insiders will get the chance and freedom to chose how they represent themselves to Friends on Xbox Live.
