Oculus Rift S ups the resolution, adds built-in sensors for improved VR

Oculus Rift S VR Headset With Higher Resolution Display and Built In Tracking Announced

That extra performance will mean better visuals and some gaming exclusives for the Rift S, though of course the standalone, wireless experience of the Quest is more convenient. While the original Oculus Rift was designed in-house, this time around, the team has teamed up with Lenovo to get this headset up and running. Highlights of the upcoming Oculus Rift S, which requires a tethered PC for processing power, include its higher resolutions screens, and its inside-out tracking. The Rift S was developed in partnership with Lenovo, which receives substantial billing on the new hardware.

Supporting both Oculus Quest and Rift, no release window has been confirmed for Journey of the Gods, and whether it'll be available for Quest's launch this Spring. The Oculus Rift S is the newest iteration, offering increased resolution and tracking without external sensors, which should make it the ideal workout headset. Oculus says that it'll be sharing more details on the Rift S in the coming weeks, so we'll definitely be keeping an eye out for those. The Oculus Rift S will come packaged with two Oculus Touch controllers and will run gamers $399, striking what the studio hopes will be a "sweet spot" of affordability for VR enthusiasts. Internal image resolution should also be much sharper, courtesy of a per-eye resolution target of 1280×1440, compared with 1080×1200 in the original device. The new Rift S also packs a single-cable system so your set up doesn't get too messy.

As TechCrunch reports, the new Rift S comes with a "slightly larger" field-of-view than the Rift, which should improve the VR experience.
