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

Danger Zone

Now in the Alpha ring, the new system update comes with improvements to the Guide, and a key new feature: Do Not Disturb. It's a minor update, meaning that while it does have new features, it's not the major update that will coincide with the next feature update for Windows 10. The second change is to Xbox Live's Game Hubs, to the Guide menu, with "Small Game Hubs" offering snappy features. The fact that it'll let you know which achievements you're close to across all games that you own and allow you to track them in one list is useful.

The update includes a couple of other new features too, such as the ability to view your closest achievements through the Guide Menu.

Over the next few weeks, the update will become available for members of the other Insiders rings before eventually rolling out to everyone. You can even tweak the filters to prioritize the most common, most rare, or most-Gamerscore-granting Achievements. With this feature, you'll be able to access great content for the games you've played recently from a Game Hub without ever having to leave the action.

The feature is essentially the same as the Xbox 360's Busy mode, which silences all incoming notifications and lets friends who view your profile know that you're unavailable for games, probably because you're binge watching something on Netflix. You'll soon be able to see a peek of the most recent comment on community posts while viewing the activity in full screen. You'll also be able to see who has liked your comments.

Microsoft wants to give us a chance to retreat to distraction-free gaming on the Xbox One.
