For those who obsessed with the Jedi-like rhythm gameplay of Beat Saber, the Beat Games developer has thankfully released a new track pack of songs for players to swipe to in virtual reality.
Beat Games announced the full track list for the Music Pack Vol. 1, a 10-song collection for $12.99 (or $1.99 per track individually). The collection is in collaboration with Monstercat to bring the following songs to Beat Saber
- Till It’s Over – Tristam
- We Won’t Be Alone (feat. Laura Brehm) – Feint
- Boundless – Aero Chord
- EPIC – Tokyo Machine
- Stronger (feat. EMEL) – Stonebank
- Overkill – RIOT
- This Time – Kayzo
- Emoji VIP – Pegboard Nerds
- Rattlesnake – Rogue
- Feeling Stronger (feat. Charlotte Colley) [High Maintenance Remix] – Muzzy
Up until now, Beat Saber players have slashed their way through the tracks that come bundled with the game as well as user-created custom songs. The new DLC pack, called Monstercat Music Pack Vol. 1, is the first of three planned paid music packs.
Some players aren’t happy about paying for their VR music, and developer Beat Games addressed those concerns in a blog post yesterday. Creating new levels for the game is an “extremely complex process” involving music labels, extensive testing, and licensing music.
“Licensing music costs money, we are sharing revenue with artists and labels and we are paying our mappers team too,” the developer said. “We believe, that quality content deserves recognition. Also, we want our players who prefer to get their content legally, to have a chance to purchase new music content with respect to law.”
The team will continue to add free tracks “regularly”, it said—League of Legends’ hit K-pop song is an example of a recent free addition.
We follow an interview with Variety this week in which Beat Games founder Jaroslav Beck revealed the game had sold more than one million copies across all platforms.
All of the songs have been mapped for every difficulty — including Expert+ for players purchasing on PSVR or for PC. PC players’ version of Beat Saber has also been updated to include the campaign mode, which debuted in the PSVR port, as well as songs from the OST Vol. 2.
