You won’t need reminding that 2020 has been a year to forget. And with us still in the midst of an unquestionably bad 12 months, it’s not just about forgetting right now, but downright escaping. With many borders closed and flights grounded, we’re all looking for ways to venture to better places, and streaming and gaming are at an all-time high. If you want next-level escapism, though, virtual reality is probably your best bet. The Oculus Quest 2 might just be the perfect tool for you to get away with and it’s available to pre-order now.
The all-in-one Oculus Quest 2 is the tech brand’s most advanced headset yet, with significant improvements to graphics, processing speeds, and sound quality. With no requirement for a computer or extra wires, all you need is the headset and controllers to take the leap to decidedly better places, wherever you might be (we’re guessing at home). The headset can also be connected to your PC in order to experience a wider range of games.
Boasting next-level hardware and advanced insight tracking technology, the Oculus Quest 2 translates your movements into virtual environments, with room tracking allowing you to duck for cover and explore with ease no matter what space you’re playing in. The included controllers, which have been upgraded for the second iteration of the Quest, put your hands in the game with precision, but if you prefer, you can go controller-free, using crazy-impressive hand tracking.
That’s the technical stuff, but the exciting part is that there is an absolutely huge range of apps and games available for the Quest 2, from shooters and Star Wars titles to immersive boxing, climbing, and fishing experiences. Not only that, but you can also escape with Hollywood’s finest via access to Netflix, YouTube, and other streaming platforms.
