Halo Recruit brings Microsoft’s most important franchise into VR

A few weeks back, UploadVR caught wind that Microsoft’s iconic Halo franchise would be coming to its new line of Windows 10 virtual reality headsets, which are made by partners such as Asus and Dell, though we didn’t know in what form. Today, Microsoft revealed all.

Halo Recruit is coming to all Windows VR headsets at launch on October 17. It will be a free, albeit brief experience designed to introduce players to the possibilities of Halo in VR. It’s developed by 343 Industries, the team behind Halo 4 and Halo 5, and it will offer you a glimpse of your favorite characters in VR. Halo Recruit will also be at retail demo stations in the coming weeks.

We asked Microsoft whether this was the entirety of its Halo plans and received the following statement in response:

We’re just scratching the surface of the potential of technologies like mixed reality, and we’ll consider it if we can find the right experiences that would be authentic to the Halo universe, to Halo fans, and make best use of the technology. That said, we don’t have anything to share.

That’s all the information we have for now, but expect a decent look to pop up online relatively soon. This essentially sounds like a Halo tech demo for Windows VR, then. That was to be expected, though we were hoping for something a little bigger.

The PC Gaming channel is presented by Intel®‘s Game Dev program.

Samsung’s phone-as-desktop concept now runs Linux

Samsung's DeX is a clever way to turn your phone into a desktop computer. However, there's one overriding problem: you probably don't have a good reason to use it instead of a PC. And Samsung is trying to fix that. It's unveiling Linux on Galaxy, an app-based offering that (surprise) lets you run Linux distributions on your phone. Ostensibly, it's aimed at developers who want to bring their work environment with them wherever they go. You could dock at a remote office knowing that your setup will be the same as usual.

It's not quite the same as your typical Ubuntu or Debian install. Linux on Galaxy launches through an app, and it's using the same kernel as Android itself in order to maintain performance. And it almost goes without saying that you'll really want a DeX setup, since most Linux apps are expecting a large screen, mouse and keyboard.

As it stands, you'll have to be patient. Linux on Galaxy isn't available right now -- you can sign up for alerts, but it's not ready for public consumption. Even so, this is good evidence that Samsung thinks of DeX as considerably more than a novelty feature. It may be a long, long while (if ever) before many people are using their phones as desktops, but Samsung is willing to gradually build up its ecosystem and eventually give you an incentive to take a second look.
