When Microsoft first announced that Valve's SteamVR was coming to Windows Mixed Reality (WMR), it only gave a general "holiday" timeframe for release. Now we know exactly when to expect its arrival: November 15.
According to Rolling Stone, that's when the preview program for SteamVR on WMR will open up from developers to anyone with a WMR headset. In other words, if you picked up one of the recently launched headsets from Dell, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, or Acer, then you'll be able to check out some of Steam's library of VR games.
Microsoft already has some Windows Mixed Reality games available, but opening up SteamVR to everyone will bring a wealth of popular titles to the platform. Some of those include Fallout 4 VR, Job Simulator, Space Pirate, and more. The preview will act as a sort of open beta, so it's unlikely that everything offered by SteamVR will be ready for primetime right away.
Windows Mixed Reality launched alongside the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update in mid-October. With support for a number of affordable headsets from partners, the platform brings support for mixed reality and virtual reality experiences built directly into Windows 10.
