After nearly a year of delay, Beat Saber multiplayer is now live on PSVR.
Live today, this mode brings a five-player multiplayer mode to the critically acclaimed rhythm game, where players cut through colored blocks to the beat of a specific song. Players can play public games with players from all over the world or compete against their friends in private games.
Any song from the PSVR version of Beat Saber’s soundtrack can be selected, as can DLC music packs from artists such as Linkin Park and others. This update also lets you create and customize your own multiplayer avatar. Your opponents will see this avatar in the new Beat Saber lobby and the multiplayer arena.
With this update today, multiplayer badges are added to the game so that opponents can see who is best at what. For example, after a match, one player may receive a badge for “the most accurate slicer” while another may get a badge for the slowest slicer. New customizable color options have also been implemented for up to five players in a match. If you don’t want to cut open the game’s standard red and blue blocks, you can change them to yellow and purple, teal and pink, or something completely different.
As this multiplayer update starts so shortly before Halloween, a new song – “Spooky Beat” by Jaroslav Beck – has been added to the game for free.
