Beat Saber Lands on PS VR November 20 With New Content

Immerse yourself in a futuristic world of music, color and lights.

Get your PS Move controllers ready, it’s time to slash some beats!
Beat Saber
is coming to PS4 on November 20, bringing the thrilling rhythm experience right into your living room. You won’t want to put it down.

In case you aren’t familiar with Beat Saber’s gameplay, your goal is to slash the beats, represented by small cubes, as they are coming at you. Every beat indicates which saber you need to use and the direction you need to match. This immersive rhythm experience is embodied in an appealing futuristic world filled with lights and mist. And of course, accompanied by exclusively made electronic dance music and tons of levels made entirely by hand.

We know the development took us a while, but here comes the best Beat Saber ever made!
These are some of the exclusive new content and features:

  • Challenging campaign: Improve your game style every day by completing levels in our complex campaign, exclusively created for PS VR players.
  • Exclusive new songs: Everyone loves Beat Saber’s Original Game Soundtrack. That’s why we bring you, above our well-know music hits, five new exclusive songs coming straight from excellent electronic dance music artists and talents from around the world.
  • Tons of modifiers: The game contains many modifiers to make your gameplay even more challenging and exciting every day.
  • Epic sabers: Get ready for those shiny beasts because they look just amazing. Watch them glow and slash the cubes with style!
  • Practice mode: We know practice makes perfect. In Beat Saber, you can start from any part of the level or even slow the game to practice problematic parts.

The game offers much more! From solo modes to competitive multiplayer modes, Beat Saber is fun to play alone or with a bunch of friends.

  • Party mode: Entertain your friends and family and have fun together! Everyone can join and start playing in seconds! Who is going to win today?
  • One saber mode: Use only one saber for playing but be aware – there is no time for slacking. You will feel like a real life swordsman.
  • No Arrows mode: The direction of your swing depends on you. How fast can you decide and make the best cut?
  • Global leaderboards: Climb the global leaderboards and compete with other players from all around the world.

Excited? Fresh content is our priority and we want to bring you new music regularly. The first Expansion Pack with 10 songs is coming to the game very soon after the release. You can choose between different music genres and enjoy well-known artists together with emerging indie talents.

Are you ready to lose yourself in this unique and addictive music experience? Beat Saber can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of skills or previous experience with VR. Everyone can understand the basic mechanism in seconds, grab a pair of PS Move controllers and swing right into the music.

Invite your friends and family over and prepare to spend the best time together, surrounded by energizing music and your best dance moves. Get ready for November 20. This is going to be a ride!

Is it still going to be $20?

    KANSASSTFAN said:

    November 8th, 11:40 am

    I would be very surprised if it’s only $20.00 eventhough it may be that price on PC. Hopefully it is though.

    Logan22 said:

    November 8th, 11:59 am

    Yea, hope for $20, but expect/budget $30, or $40 in worst case scenario. The added elements detailed here can be used as an excuse for the cost, and many prior PC (even Mobile) VR titles have been up-charged on PSVR.

    Even if it is, it is only 5 songs and they will charge you up the *** for the DLC

Nice. I’m glad I’ll be able to get this just before Thanksgiving so I can take it to parties.

Congrats on the launch! Will the PC be getting DLC too? Id pick it up to support you guys

Where is the nice first person view the PC version gets that makes it look like the player is actually holding the sabers instead of them being out in the middle floating in thin air like the video above shows?

    DaMist said:

    November 8th, 10:45 am

    I think you are confused, the many videos you see online with the person holding the saber are cleverly edited and recorded using a green screen and with a kinect, what you see here is the same as the regular pc version.

    Axecution said:

    November 8th, 8:58 pm

    DaMist is right

    DuoMaxwell007 said:

    November 9th, 7:56 am

    What would you need to edit and green screen for to get the effect I’m taking about? The videos I’ve seen are just thecsabers closer to the screen similar to what first person combat or a first person shooter would look like instead of the sabers being further away to the point where they are floating in the distance

plingativator said:

November 8th, 10:08 am

Heck yes! I’ve been waiting for this one!

Looks great! I’m interested, hope I don’t forget…

When an announcement/update like this is shown on the Blog, it should immediately be available for preorder on the Store, or at the very least viewable, so it can be added to a Wishlist.

    I totally agree, I still can’t find Road Redemption on the Playstation store from their previous article.

So excited for this. I’ve been waiting for a launch date forever. Excited that you are going to give us even more songs with expansions.

Ha! Darth Vader simulator!
Still better than all of the BF games and new SW movies :D

ZanFear said:

No mention of downloading the custom games, at least at launch. I’ve played this game many times on my friend’s HTC Vive, and downloading custom songs adds so much to the game.

commandercoda said:

November 8th, 5:20 pm

this is great, but i’m sad to know that we won’t be able to get the amount of songs that are available on pc. I just wanna jam to the persona 5 soundtrack

Pickasky said:

November 8th, 9:09 pm

Sooooo hype//// what’s the song called in the trailer

Astroking112 said:

November 9th, 12:34 am

I didn’t think that this would be my cup of tea, but trying it out on a friend’s PC changed my mind. Unfortunately, a large part of the appeal for me is being able to play to Persona 5 and other old favorite songs, so without BeatSaver, I can’t see myself making this purchase.

I’ve been waiting so long to finally play this. No option to pre-order yet, if it will get the option at all.

I continue to be impressed with the level of support PSVR is getting two years on, really looking forward to this one.

I have been waiting for this for months! Though, I don’t see the game in the store. Will it be available in Hungary too?

    Crunchewy said:

    November 14th, 6:25 pm

    It’s not on any store yet. I don’t think there’s going to be a preorder, otherwise it would be up I’d think.

In guessing you can’t add custom songs, unlike the pc version. I’d be so happy if you could.
