The Windows Mixed Reality 'Halo' Experience Isn't A Game

Halo VR Experience, 'Halo: Recruit,' Hits This Month

Headsets that let you step into a 3-D version of Windows 10 are now available to preorder

It is ensuring Windows Mixed Reality headsets will be compatible with existing VR experiences and games, particularly those on the SteamVR store, but on top of that you'll be able to take advantage of "mixed reality" experiences which layer virtual elements on top of the real world.

KitGuru Says: Samsung does seem to have the most compelling option out of all the Windows 10 "mixed reality" headsets coming to market this year.

At the same time, Microsoft yesterday unveiled the latest device in its growing family of Windows Mixed Reality headsets - the Samsung HMD Odyssey.

Microsoft announced the deal alongside a number of other developments as it outlined its commitment to mixed reality at an event in San Francisco.

"We are standing at the threshold of the next revolution in computing".

Adding to this, the Windows Mixed Reality Steam VR Preview will be available later this year.

This new project "isn't a game or even part of a game".

Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 suffers PC launch problems, EA provides fix

The game was created by current series developer 343 Industries in partnership with Endeavor One, and looks like it will be more of a test run for the developer to get a feel for VR for the series in the future.

Samsung's HMD Odyssey will cost $500 and begin shipping early next month.

All that should mean you simply need to plug the headset in and you're ready to start enjoying a mixed reality experience, without the need to setup sensors in the room.

The five-minute Halo: Recruit experience features some of Halo's "most iconic characters", which is no doubt a reference to Master Chief and Cortana, at least.

HMD Odyssey, the first Samsung VR headset to join the Windows Mixed Reality brigade, is retailing at a price of $499 and is scheduled to be shipped on November 6, 2017.

Alanna Cotton, Samsung USA VP and GM, introduces the Odyssey on the Cliff House rooftop.
