If there’s one virtual reality (VR) videogame that has caught the imagination of HTC Vive and Oculus Rift players at the moment then it’s Beat Games (previously Hyberbolic Magnetism) Beat Saber. Having launched in Early Access on Steam and Oculus Store, the studio confirmed last month that PlayStation VR would be getting its own version. Now it appears that PlayStation VR owners will be getting exclusives as well.
In an interview with GamesBeat, Beat Games CEO Jaroslav Beck revealed that PlayStation VR owners would be getting unique gameplay features, whilst adding: “There will be quite a lot of things we would like to deliver to PS VR exclusively, but it’s a little too soon to talk about it. Stay tuned!”
As for those fans worried that the PlayStation VR version will be a downgraded copy then don’t be, with Beck saying: “We were very surprised that we don’t have to make many changes. PlayStation is capable to deliver almost 1-to-1 experience as we have on PC right now.”
Additionally, for those that do happen to own a PlayStation 4 Pro, it “will render the game in higher resolution, and some of the effects will have higher details,” Beck confirms.
Currently though there’s no confirmed release date for the PlayStation VR version, simply ‘later this year.’ This is likely due to the team working on several other aspects of the videogame as well.
First of all there’s going to be an official level editor for fans to create their own tracks. After which Beat Games plan of launching a multiplayer component so players can compete side-by-side on the same level for the best score. And lastly, announced last week is the Beat Saber Arcade, an official licensing initiative by the studio so location-based entertainment (LBE) venues can purchase and use the title.
So there’s masses going on. As soon as further details are released by Beat Games, VRFocus will let you know.
