In addition to Gran Turismo 7 on PS5, Sony announced at CES 2023 that Beat Saber would also be coming to PlayStation VR2. The developer confirmed this on Twitter, though it’s not clear whether it will launch alongside the VR headset next month.
Released in May 2019 for PlayStation VR and PC, Beat Saber sees the player using motion-controlled sabers to slice glowing blocks to the beat of the music. Along with different positions for blocks to hit, requiring adjustments to the slicing angle and direction, one must also move physically to avoid walls and bombs. Various new mechanics were added over the years, including a Level Editor for players to create stages.
As of February 2021, Beat Saber has sold over four million copies. It’s also sold over 40 million songs through paid DLC. Though Meta currently owns Beat Games, the developer remains independent. Stay tuned for more details on the PlayStation VR2 version in the coming weeks.
