Beat Games co-founder and CEO Jaroslav Beck tweeted today that the PSVR version of hit rhythm game Beat Saber (2018) could be getting its first song pack sometime this month.
The PSVR version of Beat Saber, which launched early last month, features 16 songs, each of them with varying levels of difficulty.
Late last month the studio said that the music for first PSVR song pack was ready and being mapped—no small task, even for an indie studio that’s celebrated such wide success with the release of their game on both PSVR and PC VR (still in early access).
All tracks are ready, we are now mapping the levels. :)

Now, Beck says that the first song pack should hopefully be done by the end of 2018. That’s only a little under three weeks away.
Working on it! Hopefully by end of this year;)

There’s still no word on the track list, or how many songs will be available for PSVR users. However you slice it (pun intended), the studio is nearing the finish line. Let’s just hope it’s here in time for Christmas.
The studio has also kept mum on when to expect an official track editor of PC VR users too, although PC players have had the benefit of non-official track editor and community-driven song expansion software ‘Beat Saver’ for some time now—a luxury that PSVR users haven’t had, making it clear where Beat Games’ priorities lie for now.
