Microsoft and 343i are bringing Halo to VR much sooner than anticipated it seems. Halo Recruit will be a short VR experience featuring characters from the Halo series in their environments. It’s a preview of what could be in the future with VR and Halo and is not intended to represent a game. Rather, it will be a free download on October 17th for the Windows Mixed Reality headsets.
You can find a first look at the title thanks to Road to VR below:
With Microsoft announcing extended support for MR headsets and the Xbox One X reportedly supporting the same environment of devices in the future, it will certainly be interesting to see how the VR/MR space grows in the next few years. No matter what, we’re looking forward to experiencing Halo and other universes more fully!
