Avatars to Show Modern Warfare 2 Pride
As part of the whole "New Xbox Experience" everyone and their mothers (if their mothers have Xbox Live) are getting down with the newfangled Avatar clothing, and when a big game comes along so do the waves of dress-up items for your virtual self. Yes, weve seen people rocking the Halo helmets and Dead Space headgear, but what of the Call of Duty representation? Will we see any avatar goodness from Infinity Wards highly anticipated shooter?
That answer, dear friends, is yes.
In a recent Twitter update IWs Robert Bowling - community manager and "guy who gets stuff thrown at him in trailers" - commented on a user question about avatar implementation. Bowling responded to the question of Avatar rewards and other customization options, stating "Not sure well be doing any Avatar rewards, but we are making avatar items. With some free ones hopefully."
