Windows Mixed Reality Headsets will gain support for SteamVR apps on November 15th

Before the launch of Microsoft's "Windows Mixed Reality" VR platform, the company promised to deliver SteamVR support, allowing users of these new headsets to run a large portion of Steam's extensive library of VR software. 

This functionality is already available to developers, though it will finally be opened up to the public later this month on November 15th, giving Valve a larger potential playerbase for VR games and Microsoft a pre-built library of VR software.  

Users of Microsoft Windows 10 Mixed Reality Headsets will then be able to play popular SteamVR titles like Project Cars and Elite Dangerous without the need to buy a more costly HTC Vive VR headset.

Early Windows 10 VR headsets cost around $399 for both the VR headset and motion controllers, making it one of the most affordable PC-VR systems on the market. 

Windows 10 VR will also lack any external VR tracking cameras and/or sensors, which should make their headsets much easier to setup and use than competing offerings. This comes at the cost of accuracy, but it is unknown how well these new headsets perform in this regard.
