Through the redesigned setup, users will have way more options when it comes to designing their avatars. The usual area where Microsoft held within the LACC will be dedicated to Mixer, the game streaming service owned by Microsoft.
The new Avatars are much more customisable than the current models, featuring more body types, props and costumes. This would go some way to explaining all those floor plans showing a comparatively small Microsoft booth that were doing the rounds earlier in the year.
Microsoft is expected to launch its new Xbox Live Avatars sometime in April, following a long delay.
Sky suspends Carragher until the end of the season
Carragher was forced to watch the shocking footage live on Sky News and issued a grovelling public apology on Monday. And the 40-year-old may turn to Dr Peters, with whom he worked during his final season at Anfield.
However, no specific details have been revealed by Microsoft or Xbox regarding what will be in store for attendees. These avatars, which were announced last summer, are nearly complete now to replace those introduced with the Xbox 360 in 2008. Since the start, Xbox One failed to gain traction among the players - thanks to its hefty $500 price tag. While the console was behind the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in terms of sales, the Xbox One had its best January ever, fueled by the Xbox One X.
With information from sources at Microsoft, The Verge writes that not only is the release date imminent, but that those of us in the Preview Program will be invited to this new version this month. I do hope that we see more than just sequels this year though, Halo 6 or Gears 5 would be awesome, but something fresh and new would also be a big deal.
Hopefully, the E3 2018 will trigger the boost that Microsoft has always been waiting for.
