Get 12 Free Avengers: Infinity War Xbox One Avatar Items
What, no Stan Lee costume?
Could your Xbox avatar use a little freshening up? Are you getting bored looking at your character in the same clothes every time you sign in to play? If so, you'll be pleased to hear you can now deck out your avatar with Avengers: Infinity War gear for free. Just check out this page on the Xbox Store to grab all 12 items. It's all part of a promotion for the Avengers: Infinity War movie, which opens April 27.
You can dress your avatar in suits to make them look like Captain America, Thor, Star Lord, Black Panther, Iron Man, or Black Widow. You can wrap them in Dr. Strange's cape and don Thanos's Infinity Gauntlet. And if your avatar is feeling lonely, you can give them companions like Groot, Hulk, or Rocket. Notably absent is Hawkeye, who has also been notably absent from the upcoming movie's trailers and posters.
If reports are to be believed, Xbox avatars should be getting a major shakeup sometime this month. At last year's E3, Microsoft announced it would offer avatars with more diverse and inclusive customization options. That still hasn't come to fruition, although The Verge reports the new avatar system will launch for all users in April. Microsoft hasn't announced a specific date.
In the meantime, you can pretend your avatar is a superhero by "purchasing" the Avengers items for free.
