Sony Countdown to E3 Day 5: Beat Saber
Today during Sony’s Countdown to E3 show they revealed that the vastly popular Beat Saber is coming to PSVR.
The rhythm game with ‘lightsabers’ gets players to hit targets to the beat of the music in particular ways and is visually gorgeous.
In a blog post on Sony’s website they stated:
Beat Saber is an action rhythm game like no other. Wield your PS Move controllers to slash and cut coloured cubes as they travel towards you, synchronised to a pulsing electronica beat. Each cube has an arrow indicating which angle you need to attack it, with every successful strike generating a unique sound that builds into that level’s track.
The sense of satisfaction – getting immersed in the track’s flow, feeling the rhythm in every fibre of your body, landing perfect attack after perfect attack – is unparallelled. It’s an astonishing, addictive experience.
Each level is paired with original music, created exclusively for Beat Saber by Los Angeles-based composer Jaroslav Beck.
One of the biggest advantages of this game is its simplicity. You can grasp its mechanics in seconds. This makes Beat Saber the perfect pick up and play game for PS VR, whether you’re a VR vet or newcomer. And if you are the competitive sort, you can make your mark on our global leaderboards.
We’re really excited to bring Beat Saber to PS VR. We hope you are ready to join the beat when the game releases on PS4.
