Oculus Quest offers all-in-one wireless VR headset for $399

Facebook has unveiled a new all-in-one wireless virtual reality headset dubbed the Oculus Quest.

The Oculus Quest release date is currently slated for spring 2019. Pricing starts at $399 for a 64GB headset, which will ship with two Touch controllers.

Standalone Quest

The new hardware, which offers “six degrees of freedom”, will be powered by ‘Oculus Insight’.

This enables it to support inside-out tracking for the main headset and Touch controller tracking, meaning no external sensors are required to track movement.

No PC or smartphone will be needed to run the hardware, as all the tech is built into it.

Facebook claims more than 50 titles will make the launch lineup, including Robo Recall, The Climb and Moss.

The latest piece of VR hardware is said to complete the company's lineup of first generation headsets, which already includes the Rift and Go.
