  • Beat Saber on PSVR: exclusive content for the PlayStation version

With 100 copies sold in less than a month when it was released on PC in May 000, Beat Saber is one of the most popular VR games on the market. On Steam, it is even the seventh highest rated game in all categories. Simple and effective gameplay and colorful graphics: this is the recipe for this game halfway between Star Wars and Guitar Hero.



After long months of waiting, the owners of the PSVR headset for PlayStation 4 will finally be able to enjoy this game. On Twitter, PlayStation Europe confirms the release of the game on PS4 for November 20, 2018. In addition, the expectation of fans will be rewarded, since the PSVR version will offer an exclusive campaign mode, a practice mode, modifiers, new sabers, and five new exclusive songs.

However, the exclusive content announcement for the PSVR version did not failed to react the owners of the PC version. Some of them pointed out to the developers that the game is still in Early Access on Steam, and that no updates have been deployed for months. One of them even criticizes developer Beat Games for letting the community “carry” the game thanks to its many mods.

Faced with the anger of the fans, Beat Games reacted quickly. The developer explains that he wanted to offer PlayStation players new content because they had to wait longer than PC players. In addition, the firm assures that the training mode, modifiers and new sabers of the PSVR version will be  added very soon by means of an update to the PC version for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality. The campaign and the 5 new songs will also be incorporated into the PC version a little later.
