‘Beat Saber’ to Land on PSVR Later This Year, Studio Teases New Track

Hyperbolic Magnetism, the indie studio behind Beat Saber (2018), today announced that the hit PC VR rhythm game is headed to PlayStation VR headsets later this year.

The Czech Republic-based studio announced PSVR availability via a tweet, which featured a brand new song to the lineup. While Hyperbolic Magnetism is staying mum on a specific release date, musician Jaroslav Beck, who created the music for the game, teased that the PSVR availability announcement may mean at least a new level.

Since the game’s launch on HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Windows “Mixed Reality” VR headsets in early May, the studio has gone on record saying they’ve generated $2 million is revenue with at least 100,000 units sold—a big milestone both for the two-person studio and VR as a whole. Now with a PSVR launch around the corner, E3 would be a great platform to announce new levels, new songs, or even new artist collaborations.

The studio has been busy creating its own first-party level builder, which would allow any user to import their own music and build custom levels. Although it’s been officially in-the-making since Hyperbolic Magnetism released last month, the studio has endorsed a few third-party solutions, which has resulted in some pretty wild creations to say the least.
While we’re waiting on further news this during E3, which goes June 12 – 14, check out our Early Access review of Beat Saber.
