Swinging arms at the ready; today’s Beat Saber update adds yet more songs for free.
Beat Games just launched its next major patch for the smash hit indie VR game. Headlining the update are six new songs, officially labeled ‘Original Soundtrack Vol. 3′. The tracklist includes a new track from Jaroslav Beck, Beat Games’ former CEO who recently stepped down to focus on music for the game.
But that’s not all. This update also brings the previously-promised color customization system. It allows you to select your own colors for sabers, notes and lights. No more Jedi red and blue for you. There’s also a new level environment override option.
Elsewhere this update brings a host of tweaks and fixes. Beat Games is promising improved lighting effects and more precise detection of angles when you swing. Some of the songs themselves have been slightly tweaked and a bug that stopped the game for starting properly has been addressed.
Beat Saber Update Tracklist
The update should be live on all platforms now. Here’s the tracklist for the OST 3, which you can listen to here:
Jaroslav Beck, Jan Ilavsky – Origins (ft. Mutrix)
Morgan Page – Reason For Living
Pegboard Nerds – Give A Little Love
PIXL – Full Charge
Slippy – Immortal
Boom Kitty – Burning Sands
There’s plenty more to come from Beat Saber land, though. We’re still awaiting the arrival of 360-degree levels, which we first saw at E3. These will definitely be appearing on Oculus Quest, but other platforms aren’t yet confirmed. Beat Games is also working on a third premium track pack, though we don’t know when that will launch. Last week Beck also announced plans to start funding indie VR developers as a means of giving back to the community. We’ll be sure to keep you updated with all the latest from the game going forward.
