Microsoft's more inclusive Xbox avatars finally arrive in April

Microsoft is shaking up their E3 plans in a big way

Microsoft said the move from the LACC to the Microsoft Theater was done in response to changes at E3 itself, which is once again open to the public and will feature extended show hours in 2018.

Nothing has been confirmed about what will be revealed at E3 but previous year Microsoft revealed the Xbox One X and games for it.

Microsoft is planning to launch its new Xbox Live Avatars next month.

The more diverse and inclusive character creation system will arrive in April for everyone - or this month if you are an Xbox Insider - according to a new report from The Verge's Tom Warren. As such, they'll bring a ton of new body type options and clothing to allow players to truly express themselves. Now, they seem to be ready to make this year's E3 the biggest ever stating "it will be our biggest showing ever".

Microsoft will still have space at the LA Convention Center, exclusively focused on Mixer, "where you can play, stream and interact with games and catch the latest E3 news". In addition to the press conference, Microsoft will also use its theater to host various Xbox FanFest activities, as well as hands-on gameplay and demos for attendees, with the company promising the new venue will let it "include even more fans and partners in the Xbox E3 2018 Briefing than ever before".

Talking about the event, Microsoft has revealed that it will be having the briefing on Sunday agai, June 10th at 1 PM PT and 4 PM ET.

Microsoft has made a decision to take over the bulk of its E3 2018 presence to the Microsoft Theater across the street from the Los Angeles Convention Center (where E3 2018 will be held) in collaboration with the organizers of E3, the Entertainment Software Association.
