In addition to the standalone Oculus Quest, the company announced today that it'll also be launching the Oculus Rift S. The Rift S brings back the tether, meaning you'll need a relatively beefy gaming PC to use it, but in return Oculus promises "access to the most immersive content that VR has to offer".
It also includes the Oculus' Passthrough+ feature which involved five tracking cameras, which allow gamers to observe real-life surroundings without having to remove the headset.
The Oculus Rift S will be available for $399 and will become officially available this spring. See their launch video below. Their nip and tuck alterations have also resulted in a new headband for the Rift S, which features a new halo-dial design not unlike the PSVR's headband.
And best of all, the Rift S has the same minimum and recommended hardware requirements as the original Rift, so you won't need to upgrade your PC in order to take advantage of it.
In fact, the Rift S already does improve on this, in one critical way - no more external cameras.

I actually went on Fox News during prime time and specifically said , "The Republican Party has chosen to embrace Donald Trump ". Pelosi said the broadening of the resolution didn't weaken it in her appearance with The Economic Club.
The headset is named the S rather than the Oculus Rift 2 because while it is an across the board improvement, it's not a fundamental shift in the technology.
The Rift S also has a higher resolution display crammed inside it, too: 1280×1440 per eye for a total of 2560×1440.
Users can benefit from a single-cable system for a clutter free experience with Oculus Rift S. Additionally there's a headphone jack so you can use your own favourite headphones with the Rift S. The Oculus Touch controllers have also been updated. Not only is comfort up, but there is additional light blocking and better weight distribution for the headset.
KitGuru Says: I've had an Oculus Rift since launch and while I really enjoy using it, screen resolution has always bothered me. This, however, comes at a cost: The redesigned headset no longer comes bundled with any headphones at all, and those who do not want to shell out extra for a pair are left using built-in speakers which pipe sound through the head straps.
Oculus said the headset would go on sale in the United States of America this spring.
