Watch Microsoft's recent Windows Mixed Reality presentation right here

For most people, virtual reality in 2017 means the promise of a new way to game and experience environments that simply aren't available in the real world. In addition to its use of the Window Mixed Reality system and the promised "highest display resolution in the VR industry", the new headset comes with built-in microphones, precise position sensors, and AKG headphones.

She went on to say: "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 October 17 (you will of course, need to have a Windows MR headset to play)".

Microsoft's making a big push towards expanding mixed reality to all, announcing a number of upcoming projects at an event.

Touching on philosophy briefly, he proclaimed that, "Computers will empower us to renegotiate our very contract with reality", going on to reiterate the point by saying, "Our very sense of reality is set to be transformed". "We'll immerse ourselves in virtual worlds of our choosing and be able to accomplish impossible things".

Given the platform, the Odyssey also utilizes inside-out tracking just like other WMR headset out there.

It remains to be seen whether WMR will truly take off, but Microsoft seems to be all-in.

If you've been holding out on virtual reality because of the price or the complicated setup, Windows Mixed Reality and Samsung's HMD Odyssey may just be the solution.

Halo: Recruit was made by 343 in partnership with VR developer Endeavour One.

Samsung HMD Odyssey will be available for $499 starting October 17.

Now that we have that out of the way, here's what's Samsung Odyssey offers.

Available for $499.99 on November 6th in the USA, the headset and bundled controllers are primarily being marketed as a gaming device on Samsung's website, and appears alongside two Odyssey branded laptops that will support its Windows Mixed Reality Ultra tier of graphical capability.
