Since its launch in May 2018, Beat Saber has only had a single-player mode. Today, developer Beat Games announced that Beat Saber will be getting a new multiplayer mode on October 13. The multiplayer mode for Beat Saber has been in development for some time now. In September 2018, the developer announced that 85% of the multiplayer mode was already complete, but the project had gone quiet since then, until today.

The developer also posted a short teaser along with the announcement. The video itself doesn't share any details on how the multiplayer will work, but it did show a split screen of up to five animated characters playing the game. According to RoadtoVR, however, the multiplayer mode will allow players to choose an avatar, join a party or random match, and have a virtual dance-off with up to five players. The game will not support cross-play between Steam and Oculus. Details on cross-play between Oculus Rift and Quest will be shared in the future.

Most rhythm games have a multiplayer mode of some form, and Beat Saber fans will be delighted to see that the game is finally receiving multiplayer as well. Beat Saber is a VR game only and cannot be played without a VR headset. Despite this, the game has continued to grow in popularity. Beat Saber has also continued to get constant updates and support, which helps bring players back time after time.

Beat Saber has also been regularly getting new songs and music added. Recently, Beat Saber fans received a Linkin Park DLC, which includes popular Linkin Park songs like In The End, One Step Closer, Number, Faint, and more. A total of 11 songs are included, and each of these songs can be purchased for $1.99 on the PlayStation Store with the entire collection available for $13.99.

Beat Saber is available on PC and PS4.
