Here’s everything Oculus just announced

The other handy upgrade coming to Quest is Passthrough “on demand,” which uses the device’s front cameras to let you see what’s right in front of you in the real world without having to pull off your sweaty headset.

Oculus announced a few marquee games that are headed to the Quest, including a new Star Wars[4] game that’s coming out today as well as a Medal of Honor[5] game slated for 2020. On the other end of the spectrum, some games from Oculus’s cheaper Go headset are coming to the Quest[6] “starting next week.”

Oculus also says it’s going to let Quest users turn off tracking when they’re seated “to make casual viewing of media apps easier and more comfortable from anywhere.”

Oh! And Oculus says FandangoNOW (a streaming service by . . . Fandango) is coming to Quest and Go headsets. Handy.

Absent from today’s event were any hardware upgrades for the Rift. That headset got its most recent upgrade in May, and it’s possible Facebook isn’t even that focused on super-high-end VR hardware[7] right now. But if you’re interested in learning more about the more futuristic, totally-not-ready-for-release stuff that Oculus is tinkering with, the company has a little summary here[8].
