Halo Mixed Reality Experience Coming Later This Month

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

As a reminder, Microsoft is positioning Windows Mixed Reality as an all-inclusive concept that includes both augmented and virtual reality - HoloLens is for AR, while the other Windows Mixed Reality headsets would be used for VR. Also detailed was AltSpaceVR continuing to work on PC and Mac in 2D mode, HTV Vive, Oculus Rift, Daydream by Google, and Samsung Gear VR.

Halo: Recruit was announced as a launch title for the Windows Mixed Reality platform today, set to be launched via the Windows Store for free.

Samsung (OTC:SSNNF, OTC:SSNLF) announces its Windows Mixed Reality headset called the HMD Odyssey, which will mark the first of the company's VR headsets to run on Microsoft's system. The Dell Visor and the HP MR headset are priced at $449, while the Acer and Lenovo Explorer will sell for $399.

AMOLED technology generally offers far deeper blacks than the LCD panels every other PC manufacturer is building into their headsets, which can be quite useful for a realistic VR experience. The headset also features integrated AKG headphones with support for 360-degree spatial audio, giving it another leg up on the competition.

Microsoft is acquiring virtual-reality social networking startup AltspaceVR for an undisclosed amount. There are precious few opportunities as a creative team to get to explore a truly brand new medium - the mixed reality space is exactly that, and it's magical.

That's unlike Samsung's less expensive Gear VR headset, which is created to run on smartphones powered by Google's Android operating system. It stands out because it has dual-OLED displays, each with a higher 1400 x 1400 resolution and 110-degree field-of-view.

While it is unknown if this will lead to more Halo mixed reality experiences, fans can look forward to Halo Recruit very soon Unfortunately, it won't be a full game or even minigame, so don't get your hopes completely up. Halo: Recruit, teased at an event in San Francisco, gave us our first look at the popular game in mixed reality, with users getting a fuller look on october 17. But most of all, we can't wait for you to take the Samsung HMD Odyssey out for a spin, and see it for yourself. It costs $499 with bundled motion controllers.
