Oculus fans have long been waiting to find out when the company is going to release its Rift S and Quest headsets. The wait will soon be over for them. The company has confirmed today that both headsets will begin shipping in 22 countries starting next month. Customers are able to pre-order them starting today for $399.


Oculus Rift S is an updated model of the Oculus Rift which came out in 2016. It replaces the previous model’s tracking cameras with inside-out tracing. Some other improvements have been made so that the device is more comfortable to wear overall.

The Oculus Quest is the company’s long-awaited standalone virtual reality headset which was unveiled last year. It doesn’t need a separate computer or external tracking cameras to function as it relies only on its Snapdragon mobile processor.

As has been the case with previous headsets from the company, the Oculus Rift S and Quest will be sold through the company’s online store in addition to several retail partners which include the likes of Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart. GameStop will sell the Quest while Microsoft will be selling the Rift S. Pre-orders are open today and those who want one can now get their orders in. The Oculus Rift S and Oculus Quest will begin shipping on May 21st.
