Next Xbox Update Adding New Achievement Features and Mini Game Hubs

But you probably won’t be able to buy them with real-world money

The highlight feature has to be the ability to set your online status as "Do not Disturb", something fans have always been asking for. This way, you can easily see which Achievements you're closest to and quickly launch the game to achieve them. There are sort filters that allow you to prioritize next Achievements by closest, most common, rarest, most common rare, and highest Gamerscore. Although the website is not publicly accessible at the moment, the website may further describe how the upcoming Career system would work with Xbox Achievements.

The second change is to Xbox Live's Game Hubs, to the Guide menu, with "Small Game Hubs" offering snappy features.

Microsoft got its fair share of criticism previous year for the lack of exclusive games for Xbox One, and it seems like they got the message loud and clear. Will be able to access content for games you've played recently from a Game Hub without ever having to leave the action. It will show you need-to-know information without leaving your game such as online friends, upcoming Achievements, Looking for Group requests, and more.

"Sometimes all you want to do is avoid all distractions and focus entirely on your game".

The update will also add a "Do Not Disturb" online status, to let friends know you're now unavailable, while the community feed has also been tweaked to make it easier to view. Comments on community posts are also getting an adjustment, and soon you'll be able to peek at the most recent comment and see who has liked your comments. In addition to shutting down the console after one or six hours of inactivity, players will be able to select options for two, three, four, and five hours. I'm sure Microsoft has a lot of new features planned.

"Your account e-mail address will only be used to add you to the recipient list of these pre-alpha Xbox versions", explains Kodi, adding that it will not be used in any other way - not even for communication or registration.
