In September, as part of our R15 launch announcement, we revealed that you would soon be able to customize your avatar’s default movement with a series of optional animation packages. As we kick off the new year, we’re delighted to announce that the first five animation bundles are now available in the Catalog!

Without further delay, here’s a few details about which animation packages await you:

Our goal is to take full advantage of the R15’s enhanced expressive capabilities to provide the community with more ways to uniquely customize their avatar’s movement in-game. Once equipped, each package changes the following animations accordingly: Run, Walk, Fall, Jump, Swim, Climb, Idle. We’ll have further news to share about more variants, previewing animations in the Catalog, and customizing additional types of animations in the near future, so stay tuned.

Note: Developers have the power to override users’ custom animations if they so choose. Please refer to our Developer Forum for more information.

Equipping new animations is just as easy as dressing up your avatar with different accessories and clothing items. On the Avatar Editor page, we’ve added a new “Animations” tab that will show you a list of all the different types of animation packages you have previously acquired from the Catalog. Simply select the type of animation you’d like to change, then choose which animation package you want to wear, and you’re all set. Within the next few weeks, we’ll also be updating our mobile avatar editor to allow you to equip animations on-the-go as well.

Each animation bundle is exclusive to the R15 avatar and will vary in price between R$80 to R$1,000. The team has been working tirelessly to make customizing avatar animations possible, so we hope you enjoy them! As always, we love to hear your feedback. Let us know what you think on the forums or on social media, and keep checking back in to the blog for more updates!
