It’s been less than a month since we announced Oculus Quest 2 and opened pre-orders, and we’ve been blown away by the community’s response. Smaller and lighter than the original Quest, Quest 2 delivers faster performance and our highest-resolution display ever—and it starts at just $299 USD.

Didn’t place a pre-order? Pick up a headset at oculus.com or from our retail partners, including Best Buy, GameStop, Target, and Walmart in the US; Currys PC World and FNAC Darty in the UK and EU; Bic Camera, Yamada Denki, Yodobashi Camera, and GEO in Japan, and Amazon worldwide.

Here’s what the reviewers are saying:

  • “The Quest family is probably the smartest way to get into VR right now and the most future-proof.” —Destructoid
  • “The Quest 2 is everything I liked about the original Quest at launch but with the benefit of a stronger ecosystem that’s developed over the past year.” —The Verge
  • “Facebook’s Oculus Quest 2 is outstanding.” —TechCrunch

Content Is King

Quest 2 gives you access to the full library of Quest content, including Echo VR, Moss, Vader Immortal, and many more. There’s also some killer new games and updates available today, like The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, Beat Saber multiplayer, Rez Infinite, and some great Japanese content—with even more on the way. And with Quest 2, Oculus Link, and a compatible gaming PC, you can enjoy some of the best that PC VR has to offer, including Asgard’s Wrath, Stormland, and Lone Echo, plus upcoming titles like Lone Echo II and Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond.

Additionally, we have a handful of beloved Quest titles receiving free updates for Quest 2 as part of our “Newly Enhanced for Quest 2” pack. You can find this pack on the Quest store, and all titles are available now! If you already own these games on Quest, you’ll see these updates populate automatically on Quest 2. Read on below for what our developers have updated in each of these fan-favorite titles:

  • Arizona Sunshine — Grab up-to-three fellow survivors and venture into post-apocalyptic Arizona with updated visuals and improved Zombie physics as you navigate the Zombie hordes. Developed by Vertigo Games.
