The new headset version should support all existing games with Oculus Rift support.
Oculus are also promising improved light blocking with the Rift S, courtesy of their partnership with Lenovo, who helped design the headset for increased comfort and better weight distribution. Highlights of the upcoming Oculus Rift S, which requires a tethered PC for processing power, include its higher resolutions screens, and its inside-out tracking. 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.
The brand new Oculus Rift S is being shown off at GDC and Ars Technica had a chance to play with it.
Facebook's Oculus was one of the pioneers with respect to modern virtual reality (VR) headsets with the original Rift, and now the company is ready to deliver an evolutionary successor in the form of the Rift S. The Oculus Rift S represents a mixed bag on the specs front compared to its predecessor and was developed in conjunction with Lenovo. The trade-off here, however, is in refresh rate which drops from 90Hz down to 80Hz, although you do get a slightly larger field of view.

Christchurch mosque shootings: Jacinda Ardern praises police who captured accused gunman
Tarrant was remanded without a plea until his next scheduled appearance in the South Island city's High Court on April 5. However, more than 400 people were at the Al Noor Majid Mosque in Christchurch at the time of the shooting.
The Rift S also sports built-in audio using speakers integrated into the headset, though if you want, you can still hook up your own headphones using the headset's included 3.5mm jack.
The Rift S comes with an inside-out tracking system called Oculus Insight, confirming previous reports.
Between the departure of former CEO Brendan Iribe and Oculus' recent focus on standalone VR headsets like the Oculus Go and the forthcoming Oculus Quest, it sort of felt like the company's PC roots were being left behind. Or you can just use the feature to see and then grab a drink between levels of your favourite VR game. Inside-out tracking has also been built into the revamped Oculus Touch controllers, which should mean more precise hand tracking.
Initial reviews of the Rift S are tepid.
