Mixed reality Halo experience to release this month

Microsoft's growing fleet of mixed reality headsets just got bigger.

Although the monetary details of the acquisition are not available, today's announcements reveal that Microsoft was the company passionate enough to save AltspaceVR.

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. The platform will continue to work on PC and Mac in 2D mode, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Daydream by Google, and Samsung Gear VR.

Microsoft said it will bring Halo to its Windows Mixed Reality headsets later this month. The headset is expected to be available on November 6, 2017. The purchase by Microsoft opens new doors for the company in the virtual reality world. This could potentially make a huge difference in the quality of the Windows Mixed Reality experience for two reasons.

Microsoft announced today during a press conference held in San Fransisco that it has acquired the social VR startup AltspaceVR, which suddenly shut down its platform of the same name back in July due to lack of funding.

The HMD Odyssey will retail for $499, which is certainly up there in price compared to the other Windows Mixed Reality headsets.

Microsoft even said it plans to focus on fostering the community and making sure AltspaceVR remains a "vibrant place" to hang out in VR.

The Odyssey also has a 110 degree field of view, a 90Hz refresh rate, and integrated headphones and microphones, giving you everything you need to get started right off the bat.

As you might expect from a free title, Halo: Recruit isn't meant to be in-depth. Support for them is baked into the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, which will begin rolling out to from 17 October. The idea behind the Mixed Reality term is so that AR and VR headsets could play well together, and have access to the same software and applications.

This should mean that Samsung's headset is going to offer better contrast compared to numerous other Windows Mixed Reality headsets that generally feature LCD panels.

Samsung officially unveiled its Windows Mixed Reality headset.

All the headsets come with the same motion controllers.
