Microsoft Studios has confirmed that the next stage in the Windows Phone 7’s Xbox LIVE evolution will be the introduction of Avatar Awardables. Gamers who play Xbox LIVE enabled videogames on Windows Phone 7 will be able to unlock new Avatar Items for their Xbox LIVE Avatars on Xbox 360, PC and Windows Phone 7.
The first videogame that will support the feature will reportedly be Chickens Can’t Fly, set to launch in the first quarter of 2012. It’s not yet been revealed exactly what Avatar Items Chickens Can’t Fly will offer, nor how many, but it’s currently believed that it will be something suitably thematic. Electronic Theatre has been informed that the schedule is not concrete at present however, and another title may yet take the honour of debuting Avatar Awardables on Windows Phone 7.
Developed by Amused Sloth, Chickens Can’t Fly is currently expected to be available in either February or March 2012, bringing the first Avatar Awardables with it. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on the Xbox LIVE service on Windows Phone 7.
