Halo VR Game Coming Later This Month


VR is about experiencing a totally virtual world. In August, Redmond said, that in addition to games built for the Windows Mixed Reality APIs, games built for SteamVR would also be supported.

The Altspace team joined the software giant a few days ago, and is now being tasked with "building the world's preeminent mixed reality community", according to Microsoft's mixed reality lead Alex Kipman, who called Altspace "a pioneer in social mixed reality" Tuesday. Let's make sure that we find some new metaphors for this next wave of computing.

Microsoft announced the Samsung HMD Odyssey Mixed Reality headset at an event in San Francisco today. The future is wide-open for virtual reality gaming, so anything is possible.

VR, on the other hand, completely immerses people into fake worlds, and usually requires wearing a headset that blocks out everything else. "Halo Recruit" was developed in partnership with our good friends, Endeavor One. The Master Chief has made defeating these beasts look so easy over the years that standing before them in VR gives entirely new meaning to their deadliness, and I didn't even get to see the Covenant's largest foot soldier, the massive Hunter.

Turkey plans security steps over Iraqi Kurdish referendum
The country has the largest Kurdish population in the region and is already battling a Kurdish insurgency. The parliament will convene for an extraordinary meeting on Saturday in order to discuss policy on Iraq.

In the post-game carnage report, players can see just how well they did back in the shooting gallery and Cortana will appear to display their rank. With inside-out position tracking, users are not restricted to a limited space during their virtual reality experience. The Samsung HMD Odyssey comes with integrated AKG headphones and array mics for voice commands, as well as two motion controllers.

If you've been holding out on virtual reality because of the price or the complicated setup, Windows Mixed Reality and Samsung's HMD Odyssey may just be the solution.

Now that we have that out of the way, here's what's Samsung Odyssey offers. The Samsung HMD Odyssey will be available later this year in the US, China, Korea, Brazil and Hong Kong, with pre-orders beginning in the US only on October 3rd.
