The update which bolsters a whole new range of customisation options and an in-depth customisation system is aimed at giving Xbox One owners the best system to create and personalise their Avatars in way that is unique to them.
Microsoft have also stated that they hope that not only will “Avatars 2.0” give players an opportunity for a more personal Xbox experience but also pave the way for more games with Avatar integration in the future.
