Microsoft with 343 industries is ready to launch the Halo VR Experience for Windows Mixed Reality Headsets on 17th October. Halo Recruit is designed to create the look and feel of VR characters in famous games which can be downloaded for free on 17th October.

The VR experience created by 343 industries looks somewhat similar to the lightsaber VR experience provided by HTC Vive last year. In this upcoming launch, Microsoft is not going to offer the full game of Halo but one can get the good experience of Halo in Virtual Reality.

Microsoft has already made a move to enter the gaming world in Virtual Reality which can be presumed by its previously made announcement in which it said to support SteamVR Titles on its windows mixed reality headsets.
