Steam VR developers can now access Microsoft’s mixed reality platform

Microsoft has announced that its Mixed Reality platform is now open to SteamVR developers, which means they can now test their VR games on Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) headsets.

According to a report from TechCrunch, consumers will also gain access to Microsoft’s preview program during the upcoming holiday season. The announcement essentially means that WMR headset owners will soon be able to download VR games from Steam’s rich library of VR titles.Regarding the initiative, Valve programmer Joe Ludwig said, “Working with Microsoft to include SteamVR compatibility with these devices is also a big step in growing VR as an open platform for developers and consumers.”
