Beat Saber PSVR Won’t Have Custom Songs But New Music To Come ‘Regularly’

Beat Saber’s long-awaited PSVR version is finally set to arrive tomorrow, but developer Beat Games just reconfirmed that the game won’t be getting a major feature.

The official Beat Saber Twitter account yesterday noted that the console version of the game won’t be getting custom songs, which the PC VR community is already busy building via mods (a more official editor is on the way too). The tweet noted that it was “basically impossible” to get custom songs onto the platform because PlayStation is a “closed system”. Indeed, other VR games like Skyrim VR don’t enjoy mods for this reason.

However, the tweet also adds that this version of the game will be seeing new music packs “regularly” and we’d expect that to count for the PC version too. Details about the DLC will apparently be arriving soon.

PSVR owners are also getting some other goodies in the trade-off. This version of the game will be the first to get content such as five new songs and an all-new campaign mode. These features will be coming to the PC VR versions at some point, but they’ll debut on PSVR for now. No word yet on if other planned updates for the PC version like a multiplayer mode will also find their way over to console.

We also don’t know anything about Beat Saber PSVR’s pricing, but we’ll find out tomorrow for sure.
