One of the most anticipated VR titles, Beat Saber, just released on PlayStation VR and the team behind it has some news about what players can look forward to in the future.
Beat Games Studio did a livestream Q&A earlier today and talked about some things that they have in the works for Beat Saber on PlayStation VR post launch. The game is available now on the PlayStation Store for $29.99 and comes with 16 songs, a brand new single player campaign, and quite a few modifiers that you can enable to change up the gameplay.
More is on the way soon though as the developer said that the first 10 DLC song pack will cost $9.99 and will be releasing “soon.” There are also two more 10 packs in the works with the second set getting close. In addition to the paid song packs there are also free songs on the way as well. At the moment there are 3 free songs in the works but the plan is to have 30 free songs in total. They also mentioned that they are in talks with other game developers about possibly getting their music into Beat Saber. One of the examples given that could happen is Tetris Effect.
Outside of just songs players can also look forward to more modifiers. The developer has plans to add 5 or 6 more that will affect how the level looks and behaves. They also want to add Twitch integration features so that viewers watching can have an affect on your play session. They also say that they will probably add additional sabers in the future and maybe environments but that the environments are a bit tricky so they haven’t finalized plans for that currently.
Finally, they touched on Custom songs which are a big part of Beat Saber on other VR devices and said that while they are technically possible on PlayStation VR, they don’t know about legal issues. Basically don’t hold your breath waiting for them to happen.
We’ll have a review for Beat Saber up soon but in the meantime let us know in the comments if you’ve been playing Beat Saber and what you think of it.
