Yesterday on the Halo Waypoint blog, 343 Industries revealed Halo Recruit, its first downloadable mixed reality experience since the company announced its interest in all things mixed reality and Halo. From October 17, Windows mixed reality headset owners will get the chance to pick up those sweet, sweet Halo pistols and enter a shooting gallery featuring some of the series’ iconic aliens as targets. You can also have a go by popping into a Microsoft store.
Now before you strap on your power armour and get too excited, the studio themselves has said that this, “isn’t a game or even a part of a game.” Instead it appears that this free 5-minute experience is the beginning of more mixed reality experimentation with partner studio Endeavor One.
The experience, a short video of which can be seen here, seems to be that standard mix of looking at cool models up close and a simple VR shooting gallery, ending with a call to arms from a certain giant space dude.. The developer signs off by saying it’s “inspired and excited to do more,” but we don’t know when that will be as yet.
