Oculus has updated the number of motion-tracking sensors supported by the Rift virtual reality headset, ahead of the launch of its Touch motion controllers later this year.

The tech now allows devs to track through up to four boxes, twice the number used in the standard room-scale VR setup for Valve's Vive, which comes with two motion controllers and two boxes packed-in.

While the Rift doesn't officially support room-scale use at the moment, this latest update paves the way for titles to plan for the feature – as well as improving the existing tracking for the Rift headset and reducing occlusion via loss of sight to the sensor.

Develop has more details.
