Oculus Launching New VR Headset Next Year

Now that the dust has settled on wave one of commercial VR, many of us have been wondering, what’s next? Oculus have taken a step towards answering that question today by revealing that they will release a brand new standalone VR headset next year.

The news comes from the Oculus connect event which is taking place in San Jose and saw Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announcing the super-lightweight Oculus Go. The new headset is positioned somewhere between the Oculus Rift and the Gear VR and is priced at $199.

Most notably, the headset does not require  PC or mobile to function. Oculus describe the Oculus Go as follows:

“The high-resolution fast-switch LCD screen dramatically improves visual clarity and reduces screen door effect. And the next-generation lenses are our best ever—offering a wide field of view with significantly reduced glare.

Oculus Go also ships with integrated spatial audio. The speakers are built right into the headset, transporting you straight into VR and making the headset easy to share with someone else. If you need it, there’s also a 3.5mm headphone jack for private listening.”

There are no further details on exactly when the new headset will launch so stay tuned for more details as we get them.
