Facebook announces the Oculus Quest 2 next gen AiO VR solution

The game was one of several announced today alongside the brand-new Oculus Quest 2 hardware.

Facebook Connect took place last night and just as previously leaked, the Oculus Quest 2 was the big showstopper. In addition to a new design, new Touch controllers, and a higher-resolution display, the Quest 2 is cheaper than its predecessor, at $299 United States dollars - $100 USD less. Another significant uplift with the Quest 2 is the new display with 1832 x 1920 pixels per eye - 50 per cent more pixels than its predecessor. The "Meatgrinder Update", which challenges you to battle "relentless waves" of walkers, will be available on the Oculus Quest in the weeks after the October 13th launch. Furthermore, the increased graphics processing power brings support for a 90 Hz refresh rate.

You will be able to run system applications like the Home Environment, Explore, Store, Browser, and Oculus TV, at 90 Hz right away; all you have to do is opt in through the device's Experimental Features. Going forward Facebook / Oculus will concentrate on this Quest wireless experience. Going forward there will be no more PC-specific HMDs like the Rift S from Facebook / Oculus, instead they will ask users who want to enjoy PC-accelerated VR experiences to use the Quest HMDs combined with an Oculus Link interface. Controller tracks has been optimised for efficiency and this tweak has extended the controller battery life by 4x. With all that horsepower from your PC, games at 90fps should be a non-issue. Support for additional accessories for added comfort is also at hand. However, the Rift Platform itself isn't being dismantled.

The Quest 2 will be compatible with Rift titles but you'll need to shell out an extra £89 for the Oculus Link cable.
