If you’ve been looking for more content to play on Beat Saber (2018), you won’t have to wait too long, as Beat Games today announced that the block-slashing rhythm game is getting a big content drop next week including 40+ new beat maps.

Update (6:50 PM ET): Facebook has since updated their initial blog post to reflect not 20, but more than 40 beat maps that are said to arrive May 25th. Considering the track list hasn’t changed, we’re not certain how the company arrived at this calculation. We’ve reached out to Facebook for a clarification. Here’s the updated statement from the blogpost:

“The upcoming update introduces 46 new beatmaps—including new 360° maps and new One Saber maps—all plucked from some of Beat Saber’s most popular tracks, giving players new ways to experience the music they love.”

Facebook furthermore clarified that 360 maps will arrive on PSVR as 90 degree maps.

Original Article (11:00 AM ET): On May 25th, Beat Saber is getting 20 new beat maps—10 with 360 degree support and 10 with one-saber support (see update).

Beat Saber supports SteamVR headsets, Rift, Quest, and PSVR. Since the PSVR version only supports forward-facing and 90-degree levels due to tracking constraints, it’s unlikely PSVR is getting the 360 maps (see update).

Even prior to the studio’s acquisition by Facebook late last year, Beat Games was able to secure some pretty impressive licencing deals with bands such as Imagine Dragons and Panic! at the Disco for its ongoing paid DLC, and provide a number of free tracks as well along the way.

After the acquisition, Beat Saber nabbed tracks from Green Day and Timbaland; the strategy of filling out its library with new beat maps is a comparatively cheap option to its recent high-level deals, as all of the levels below use previously licensed music. Check out the full list below:

    And still I can not use my own music? Seriously?….
    Why is it blocked?

      http://www.beatsage.com is what you’re looking for. It’s an AI tool that just got its second version release; you can upload any MP3 or YouTube video (under 10 min) and it’ll churn out very competent beatmaps for it.

      Beat Saber use maps created by people, not autogenerated maps like audioshield do, because of this you can’t use this songs, but if there is someone that create a map for this songs you can perfectly play in the game. At https://bsaber.com/songs/new/ there are a lot of songs to download and use in BS, and you don’t need tu use a plugin, they integrated the customs songs in the game.

  • Mr. Boeien

    New, high quality beat maps are always a delight, but what Im longing for are some interesting multiplayer modes… please give us that!

    • kuhpunkt

      What should any kind of multiplayer offer?

      • ComfyWolf

        Typically multiplayer in rhythm games is everyone playing separately and competing for the higher score. They could do something more, but most people would be satisfied with just being able to compete for scores in real-time with others.

        • kuhpunkt

          But you can look at the high scores of your friends already.

          • I just wish they’d allow some way for Oculus users to compare scores with Steam users. Whether it be with user profiles that we can add as friends or allowing us to log in with other accounts on the other platform to dual-submit our scores.

            If there’s no online multiplayer there should at least be a way to unify the player base a little more.

      • Mr. Boeien

        It would be awesome to go side by side with a friend (seeing an avatar) in a tetris like mode (where you directly influence the others gameplay or beat map) or some kind of creative coop play… not just a boring scoring system ;) … put those millions of profits in some additional creativity on a multiplayer level (pretty please?)

        • I’d be happy with just some new songs at this point. It’s been 6 months since the Facebook acquisition and only about 10 songs released in that time. We should be seeing that volume per week. The same tracks over and over get boring awful quick.

      • LowRezSkyline

        I just hope they call it beat-off.

      • Robert Tran

        2 multiplayer modes! A co-op mode where it’s a complex map you both navigate together to finish. and a Duel mode where you fill a power bar and once filled, send over a wave of high difficulty blocks.

    • Just download multiplayer mod.

  • Niel Westover

    A new trophy pack please!
