Report: Microsoft Planning Xbox Career System with Avatar Loot Crate Rewards


Eurogamer has the story.

Quote:
Microsoft is developing a new system to track your overall accomplishments on Xbox, currently dubbed your "career".

First details of the system have been uncovered by the reliable Windows Central. The discovery backs up previous comments from Xbox exec Mike Ybarra where he hinted at something similar in the pipeline.

The in-development feature currently looks like it is organised around levels, with quests for XP and rewards when you level up.

These rewards include loot crates with cosmetic items for your Xbox avatar.

Code relating to the unannounced feature suggests you'll rack up experience points and collect crates simply by playing specific games and unlocking achievements.

Microsoft already runs "quests" for using Xbox via other external schemes, such as its Feedback app and Rewards programme. Your career would presumably bake a similar and more overarching version of those into your console itself.

Today's report follows Ybarra's tease last summer - also to Windows Central - that Microsoft was working on a way to reflect your playtime and accomplishments better than the current achievements system.

There's plenty of games. You just have to wait for them to finish porting the Xbox OG and 360 back catalogs.

Trust Microsoft to come riding in to town on a fad that is falling apart in gamer hatred.

...It has every game that isn't published by Sony or Nintendo.

There are plenty of games to be played.

I'm triggered, how dare you make a joke on the internet.

Can they scream to not get their console any louder?
