Halo: Recruit VR Experience Coming To Windows MR October 17

Posted October 05, 2017

The Samsung HMD Odyssey is available for pre-order now and will be released on 6 November for $500 (£377). It was tiny and it didn't get much coverage, but the company unveiled a new range of virtual reality headsets from a number of partner companies.

The Microsoft Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will bring all the software smarts needed to support the Samsung HMD Odyssey allowing for true AR experiences.

The VR suite is just like being in your own home, blanks walls ready to decorate and you can decorate as you wish.

The Windows Mixed Reality experience with the Samsung HMD Odyssey has been created to give users the very best experience right out of the box.

While Halo fans may be craving the next main installment in beloved FPS series, there's actually something pretty interesting that will be releasing for the series very soon. But the leaked product page for the Samsung Odyssey headset says " up to 110 degrees,".

"HMD Odyssey will come with two 3.5" high-resolution AMOLED displays as compared to LCD display of the other existing Mixed Reality headsets in the market. Other headsets like the Dell Visor and the Lenovo Explorer are about $350 each ($450 with the controllers), while the Acer is $300 ($400 with controllers) and the HP is $329 ($429 with controllers). The headset is available for pre-order from today in the U.S. only and will be available in the U.S., Hong-Kong, China, Korea, and Brazil later this year. Halo Recruit is not a full Halo game. But that's exactly why this is so important to set expectations now.

"We are standing at the threshold of the next revolution in computing". Over time we'll absolutely have it in Xbox, but we have nothing to announce in that space today.

Alex Kipman, Technical Fellow of new device categories in the Windows and Devices Group at Microsoft, said: "With the AltspaceVR team onboard we look forward to building the world's preeminent mixed reality community". The experience will be a free download on the Windows Store.
