Microsoft has officially announced that the HoloLens development kit is now available for pre-order at $3,000 and will start to ship on March 30th. It also comes with three games: Young Conker, Fragments and RoboRaid. Young Conker is based on the original squirrel although is developed by Asobo Studios rather than Rare. Fragments in a crime drama which “blends the line between the digital world and the real world.” And finally there is RoboRaid, an FPS with aliens bursting through your living room walls.
To those who are getting the development kit you will get an enhanced version of Skype, and also other apps for creating games. We will probably see more of HoloLens once these get shipped out to developers.
“It is amazing how different the play experience feels based on playing the game in your living room versus your kitchen or your bedroom,” said Microsoft’s Kudo Tsunoda, in an official blog post.
“Even starting the game from a different position in a single room creates an entirely new gameplay dynamic.”
