Beat Saber is great but it’s even better with more songs to play! Luckily the game’s community has unofficially added lots of new music to the game and this guide will show you how easy it is to download and install new Beat Saber custom songs. Unfortunately Beat Saber on PSVR cannot be modded to support custom songs, so this guide only applies to the Oculus and SteamVR versions of the game. If you already installed custom songs but they disappeared after an update, follow this guide instead.
The developers of Beat Saber are working on an official custom song editor, but the game’s community quickly beat them to the punch with unofficial mods which work surprisingly well, allowing you to browse and install new songs from directly inside the game.
The Beat Saber Mod Manager installs and updates the mods necessary to make this happen and it’s dead simple to install. Here’s how:
- Download the latest version of BeatSaberModInstaller.exe (2.1.8 at the time of writing).
- With Beat Saber closed, launch BeatSaberModInstaller.exe, confirm that the game’s directory is correctly selected, then install ‘Song Loader Plugin’ and ‘BeatSaver Downloader’.
- [Optional] Consider also installing ‘Score Saber’ (adds leaderboards to custom songs), ‘SongBrowser Plugin’ (adds useful song sorting and organizing options), and ‘Camera Plus’ (makes for a better spectating view on your external screen). Learn about these mods and more here.
Note: Beat Saber Mod Installer will only show plugins which are compatible with the selected version of Beat Saber (the latest version is selected by default). If Beat Saber was just recently updated, you may not see any mods listed at first (or find some are missing), which means they haven’t yet been updated for compatibility with the latest update. You can re-run Beat Saber Mod Installer at any time to check for updated mods.
That’s it! Now when you launch Beat Saber you’ll find a new button on the main menu which says ‘BeatSaver’, click this to browse and download new songs which will appear in the usual song list below the official songs. Looking for some great songs to try? Check out 11 of our favorites!
