The Chinese augmented reality (AR) company Nreal announced that it’s bringing select Steam games to its popular Nreal Light and Nreal Air AR glasses. This way, users can enjoy some of their favorite Steam titles right from the couch.
The Nreal Light glasses have already garnered attention from gamers for being able to stream titles from Xbox Cloud Gaming and other streaming services to a 200-inch virtual big screen right on your face.
Now, the company has released its first beta of “Steam for Nreal,” which allows for select Steam games, including the entire Halo franchise and other titles, to work with its AR glasses. And while the app is in beta now and somewhat cumbersome to set up, the company said it’ll be fully available later in June.
Currently, Nreal says support is limited to select titles, but shortly, it plans to add wider compatibility with the entire Steam library, plus release more apps and services.
For those wondering, the Nreal AR glasses connect to Android smartphones and aren’t as full-featured as something like Microsoft’s HoloLens or MagicLeap. That said, they’re still a good option considering the far more reasonable price point.
Nreal has also announced its “AR Jam” developer event, which kicks off on June 27th. The company will likely announce new projects and host developer competitions with a $10,000 grand prize.
