Beat Games’ cube slicing virtual rhythm game Beat Saber turns four this year. Meta and Beat Games, the Czech Republic-based studio that created the game, are adding two new remixes of classic Jaroslav Beck tracks from the game’s very first volume of music.
Meta announced on its official blog (opens in a new tab) that EDM DJ Tokyo Machine and Japanese songwriter Camellia recorded two remixes of Beck’s “Escape” and “$100 Bills” (“$215 Remix”) respectively for this free fourth anniversary pack. Tracks will appear in the Extras section of the game for Oculus Quest and Rift headsets after a brief update.
Beat Saber doesn’t just get new sounds for its birthday. It is also getting a makeover. The new update also includes a new anniversary-themed environment called The Second. The new room is also a remix of the original OST 1 The First environment with new banners on the ceiling and a neon birthday cake sign on the back wall.
Beck’s music is one of the biggest contributors to Beat Saber’s success. The beats that Beck, the former managing director of Beat Games who left to focus on music, recorded for the game’s first volume sound addictive and provide some of the funniest challenges in gaming that are sure to delight. hurt your muscles and make your heart pound. Camellia told Blog Meta that he chose to remix “$100 Bucks” to “$215 Bucks” from Vol. 1 because “it was a banger, of course!”
“Among those sick tracks, ‘$100 Bills’ is really simple and straightforward,” Camellia said. “It means I can turn the idea into something easier during the remixing process, rather than a complex idea. And I still have plenty of room to play around with the rhythm and the iconic vocals.”
Beat Saber has amassed an impressive library of blockbuster songs over its four years on VR headsets. The Electronic Mixtape DLC pack released in May added songs from EDM greats like Darude’s Sandstorm, Marshmallow’s Alone, Fatboy Slim’s The Rockafeller Skank, and Deadmau5’s Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff.
Beat Saber is also one of the most successful VR game franchises. It’s still on the “Top Selling” games list in the Oculus Store, and we consider it one of the best Oculus Quest 2 games on the console, period.
