Tactile audio vest Subpac is a great fit for immersing yourself further into the world of Beat Saber. This limited edition Beat Saber Subpac makes perfect sense, then.
Subpac offers physical audio feedback for a range of experiences. It’s essentially a vest you strap onto your torso. Haptic receptors placed around the body deliver a physical sensation. In Beat Saber, for example, you’d feel the beat of a drum or the wave of bass as you sliced up notes. Announced today, the new unit sports Beat Saber branding on the back of the vest.
The kit is being sold for $299/£299. That’s the same price as the normal S2 system (though that’s on sale for $249 right now). It’s only available while stocks last so you’ll need to act quickly if you want one. Subpac has instructions on how to get the kit running on pretty much all VR headsets, including PSVR and Quest, right here.
Back in February, we reported that Beat Saber and Subpac had teamed up to help deaf people play the game. You can see the pack in action in the video below. In a press release, the pair suggest there could be more collaborations to come, too.
Elsewhere in Beat Saber land, we’re still awaiting the arrival of the 360-degree levels we saw at E3. These will likely only launch on Quest, but Beat Games says it’s experimenting with other types of levels for other platforms, too.
