New “Career” System Would Bring Loot Boxes to Xbox Live — Report

Apparently, Microsoft is looking to update Xbox Achievements with a new "Careers" system and other special Avatar bonuses.

The update, version 1802.180105-1503, will soon advance through the various Xbox Insider rings.

At long last, Xbox is testing a "Do not disturb" online status in the latest Alpha build available for Xbox Insiders.

Sometimes all you want to do is avoid all distractions and focus entirely on your game. It also seems that these systems will incorporate achievements in some way, rewarding experience points that contribute toward levels in your overarching career.

Dominika goes through a sadistic training process and turns out to be the most risky Sparrow in the history of the program. The film opens March 2nd and also stars Matthias Schoenaerts , Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker and Jeremy Irons .

Chief among the new features is a "Next Achievements" function found in the Guide, enabling you to view and sort a list of upcoming achievements.

Also in the Guide will be new Mini Game Hubs, giving you access to content for games you've recently played without having to visit a whole new page. Mini Game Hubs provide an easy way to see friends who are now playing, upcoming Achievements, Looking for Group posts, and more.

Quality of life improvement for comments.

Microsoft did not say when the rest of us can expect to see these features, but it typically takes about a month for testing to wrap up. These features are purely to "gauge interest and collect feedback" at the moment, with no promises of them being rolled out in the future. You can also see who has liked your comments.

It appears in the clip as if the family, including Kourtney , Kim , and Khloe Kardashian , are involved in the reveal. Khloe doesn't know the gender of their baby just yet, but many are touting that they're having a baby boy.

This is a relatively minor, but very welcome, addition to the service, and is probably the most noteworthy addition on top of the mini game hubs and granular options being added to the inactivity shutdown menu.

Narrator can read large amounts of text. You'll now be able to shut down the console after two, three, four, and five hours of inactivity.

For users encountering issues where some installed games are failing to launch: If the games are installed to an external drive, Insiders are being asked to copy the game to the internal drive or attempt to delete the title and re-download.

The left and right navigation in Tournament twists is reversed when the console language is set to Arabic or Hebrew.
