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.
Update (April 8th, 2019): ModSaber is no more. There’s a new mod installer in town, and it’s called Beat Saber Mod Manager. Follow the instructions below to get custom songs.
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 BeatSaberModManager.exe (3.0.5 at the time of writing).
- With Beat Saber closed, launch BeatSaberModManager.exe, confirm that the game’s directory is correctly selected, then install ‘Song Loader’ and ‘BeatSaver Downloader’ (among other optional mods). If you don’t see these in the list then they have not been updated yet, check later by running Beat Saber Mod Manager at a later time.
- [Optional] You can also update or install any other mods that are showing in the list (learn about what various mods do here). Run Beat Saber Mod Manager later to check for the latest plugins as they’re updated.
Note: Beat Saber Mod Manager 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!
