At an event meant to show off new mixed reality headsets from Microsoft’s partners.In an announcement that it had created the first Halo game for mixed reality.
It’s called ‘Halo Recruit,’ and before you get excited. It’s really more of a target-shooting mini game that happens to have Halo characters than actual entry into the series.
For its part, Microsoft says the game is a fun, brief introduction into the world of Halo where you’ll see several iconic characters in mixed reality for the very first time.
The game will be available on October 17. With the release of the Windows 10 Fall Creator’s update and the new mixed reality headsets. It should at least keep you a little entertained until the next time we see Master Chief.
On top of that, Microsoft has roped in 343 Industries to create a mixed reality Halo game in Halo Recruit, which serves as a “brief introduction into the world of Halo”. As with others, it’ll be available October 17. It’s not a full-scale new game by any means, but rather serves to market Microsoft’s mixed reality vision.
Microsoft has also been working with Valve to integrate SteamVR with its mixed reality headsets. And the company said that while developers were now getting access to see how their creations play out.
The social app that Microsoft acquired known as AltSpace VR. It allows virtual reality users to join 3D chat rooms to attend meetups, comedy shows, yoga classes, and dance parties.
Altspace had actually planned to shut down towards the end of July due to problems with funding. But saved by Microsoft a few weeks later.
