Beat Saber (2018), the hit VR rhythm game that launched this summer on PC VR headsets, is officially landing on PSVR November 20th, including more songs and features to keep you slicing and dicing those flying blocks to the beat.
The game, which took the VR community by storm when it launched back in May, is coming with five new “exclusive songs” from electronic dance music artists and talents from around the world, Beat Games says in a PS blogpost .
The game originally launched with 10 songs, although the game’s unofficial level editor allows PC players to plug in their own music and make their own levels.
The game’s first planned expansion pack on PSVR, which doesn’t have a specific release date yet, is said to include 10 more songs “very soon after the release.” Beat Games say they “want to [release] new music regularly.”
It’s uncertain what this means for players on Rift, Vive, and Windows VR playing through Steam and the Oculus Store , although the game is technically still in Early Access on PC, so it’s possible that when it makes its full-featured launch it will include many of the same updates (minus whatever exclusive songs are coming to PSVR).

A new ‘Practice Mode’ feature will also let PSVR users start from any part of the level or even slow the game to practice more difficult parts.
Here’s a list of the modes coming to Beat Saber for PSVR:
- 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.
