To celebrate the release of Halo Wars 2 on Xbox One and Windows 10, Microsoft has added several new Halo Wars 2-themed Gamerpics for Xbox users to choose from when playing on Xbox Live. These new Gamerpics can be chosen simply by editing one’s profile on either the Windows 10 Xbox app or on the Xbox One video game console.
Gamerpics are essentially static profile pics that can be chosen as an alternative to the animated three-dimensional Xbox Avatars. They can be changed at any time and there are an impressive number to choose from featuring Xbox video game characters and stylized artwork.
Currently, Xbox users are unable to upload their own images to use as their Gamerpics but this functionality is on the way and is expected to launch before E3 in June of this year.
