Beat Saber coming to VR platforms in a ‘few months’

Beat Saber Gameplay #1

Back in 2016, game developer Hyperbolic Magnetism announced Beat Saber to the world. Beat Saber is a game that mixes lightsabers and virtual reality in a rhythm game. The game may be simple but it will definitely make players sweat. Players will have to slash the blocks in time with the music, avoid walls, and don’t slash the bombs. In addition, you’re going to have to pay attention to which way the arrows on the blocks are pointing and slash in the right direction and color. Pretty simple, right?

Two years later and we finally have some concrete information about the game. In a Facebook post, Hyperbolic Magnetism said that the game will be available on the HTC Vive, PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, and Windows MR headsets. As for the release date, Hyperbolic Magnetism has both good and bad news for us. Unfortunately, they didn’t provide a concrete release date. Fortunately, they did say that the game will come out “hopefully soon (not more than a few months).”

Here is the official Facebook post:

We have a lot of questions about platforms and release date. So here is some info:

Release date: not decided yet, but hopefully soon (not more than few months)

Platforms: the game will be available on HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, PSVR (Playstation 4 VR with move controllers) and Windows Mixed Reality headsets.

Price: not decided yet, very probably something around 20$ on PC

Soundtrack: will be released after the game launch. Two songs are already available on Spotify ($100 Bills and Escape by Jaroslav Beck)

So are you looking forward to the game? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below!
