The Entire VR Industry in One Little Email
The Daily Roundup is our comprehensive coverage of the VR industry wrapped up into one daily email, delivered directly to your inbox.
Beat Saber (2018) players on PC have a certain luxury of choice that their PSVR and Quest-owning counterparts simply don’t: easy access to user-created mods that indefinitely expand the game’s number of playable tracks, and now, an official level editor so you can easily make your own maps with your own music. Now, Beat Games says their new custom beatmap builder will also support Quest moving forward.
The studio released word yesterday via a tweet, stating that the ability to add custom levels would come in “one of the future updates.” There’s still no launch date, although Beat Games says they’re just now working on it.
Additionally, the studio says Quest users will make custom levels using a PC-based level editor, presumably the very same the studio just added to their PC VR client, a 2D software that allows you to build maps outside of the headset using your own music.
Late last week we reported on a modder that managed to port in custom beatmaps to the Quest version, which at the time seemed like the genesis of a singular home-grown solution. Now it appears Beat Games is taking a proactive approach by owning that process themselves on Quest.
This largely makes sense from a platform perspective, as Oculus hasn’t been as cagey as Sony when it comes to allowing players to bring their own music, something that has prevented Beat Games from pursuing a similar level editor on PSVR.
We’re hoping to learn more about both unofficial mods and the official level editor coming to Beat Saber on Quest in the near future. As always, we’ll keep you updated, so check back soon.
