Xbox Avatar Update Previewed in Leaked Video

By Mark Delaney,
The new Xbox avatar update should be coming soon, but if you can't wait to see what the new options will look like, a newly leaked video makes for a great preview. The two-minute video, which was first spotted on ResetEra before being taken down, is now back up elsewhere. It shows off a much wider range of hair colors, facial features, and even hints at a new option called Alter Ego. Also on display is an Avatar Store, although, like the Alter Ego section, we never see it in this video. You can watch the video in the embedded tweet below.

The new avatar update was once rumored for April, but those rumors were quickly shot down by Microsoft brass. It would seem the update may not be far off regardless, as the Xbox One app has received numerous patches over the last few weeks. Officially, the only window we've received from Microsoft is 2018.
