Microsoft announces Halo: Recruit for Windows 10 VR

 
Microsoft has revealed Halo: Recruit for Windows 10’s upcoming Mixed Reality Headsets, acting as a 5-minute demo/experience that introduces VR users to the Halo universe. This piece of Software will be available for free on the Windows 10 Store for free, releasing on October 17th alongside Microsoft’s Fall Creators Update and the official release of Microsoft’s Windows 10 Mixed Reality headsets. 
 
To develop this title, 343 Industries worked with the VR studio Endeavor One, with 343 stating that the studio is excited and inspired to do more with VR moving forward, though at this time it is unknown if a full VR Halo game is planned. 
 
 


Today Alex Kipman announced in the Windows Mixed Reality blog a fun little arcade experience that we call “Halo Recruit.” Let’s be clear, this isn’t a game or even a part of a game – it is a light introduction to the world of Halo and some of its most iconic characters… oh, and its weapons and maybe a Warthog. The point is, it was a chance for us to start to play with Microsoft’s amazing new technology and for you to get to stand toe-to-toe with an Elite (yes, I may have whimpered a little my first time in). 

Our 5-minute Halo experience will be available for fans to try in Microsoft Stores, and as a free download from the Windows Store, on Oct. 17 (you will of course, need to have a Windows MR headset to play). “Halo Recruit” was developed in partnership with our good friends, Endeavor One. Endeavor One is a small powerhouse studio with deep ties to Halo; I’ll let you look them up, but it was fantastic to get to experiment in this space with them.
