Oculus Rift S doesn’t have a launch date but, though it appears the newest Oculus software program replace has introduced together with it a number of day-one necessities for potential Rift S house owners. Digging by means of recordsdata that got here together with the most recent replace, we discovered the brand new Rift S Contact tutorial which you could play by means of even in the event you don’t have a Rift S simply but.
Dubbed ‘Oculus First Steps’, the tutorial primarily has the identical goal because the one which teaches you the use the unique Oculus Contact controllers, though it’s decidedly a bit extra magical (and presumably even Disney impressed). The final Contact tutorial was all enterprise, so this one comes as a welcome change.
We suspect the ‘Oculus First Steps’ tutorial will mechanically comply with after a consumer goes by means of the preliminary setup of their Rift S.
Additionally included within the replace is a tantalizing Rift S setup immediate; in fact you’ll fail it in the event you don’t have a Rift S but, though that received’t cease you from digging by means of a number of folders first to get to the Rift S Contact tutorial.

Right here’s the file pathway if you wish to see ‘Oculus First Steps’ for your self:
Begin the Unreal Engine executable named ‘MontereySetup’ within the TouchNUX2 folder (Monterey was the code title for Rift S), and pop in your OG Rift for a peek.
Like on the unique Rift, when you’re executed with Contact setup, you’re then taken to Oculus First Contact, which on this case is completed by inserting the First Contact cartridge into the old fashioned console. Since you’re primarily going by means of the backdoor to get there although, the executable shuts down and also you’re left to twiddle your thumbs as soon as extra in Oculus Dwelling.
Rift S is ready to launch someday this spring for $400, though with particular tutorials already sitting within the wings, which may be sooner slightly than later. Fb F8 is a possible venue for announce of its launch, which takes place April 30th to Might 1st in San Jose, California.
