Multiplayer isn’t necessarily new to Beat Saber. It was released on other platforms in October 2020 as part of a large update to the game that also introduced a new user interface and character customization options. At the time, developer Beat Games said the PS VR update may get pushed back, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that PlayStation gamers had to wait an additional three months. If you’re as bad at Beat Saber as I am, you probably didn’t mind waiting longer to embarrass yourself in front of your friends anyway.
Since its early access release in 2018, Beat Saber has been a very popular game in the gaming community as a whole. It has won numerous awards, including Best VR/AR Game at The Game Awards in 2019, and also holds a 93/100 on Metacritic. In Dualshockers’ review of the game, we said “[It] has just about everything [we] want from a rhythm game” and that “[It] is the perfect example of a virtual reality rhythm game done right.”
Beat Saber is currently available on Steam, Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, and the PlayStation Store.
