VR Rhythm Game 'Beat Saber' Could Be Available for Apple's AR/VR Headset

Popular virtual reality rhythm game Beat Saber could be one title that Apple is planning to promote for its upcoming AR/VR headset, according to a tweet shared by Beat Games co-founder Jaroslav Beck.


Beck today shared a tweet about June 5th, saying that the date would be "🍿🕶️," which seems to hint that a version of Beat Saber for the Apple AR/VR headset could perhaps be part of Apple's presentation. Beat Saber for Apple's platform is just speculation at this point, but Beck does not regularly tweet about Apple, and would seemingly have no reason to comment on the event.


Rumors have suggested that Apple is already working with select game developers to help them update existing content for mixed reality, and Beat Games could be one of the companies that Apple is working with. Beat Saber is one of the most well-known virtual reality games.

Players are tasked with using arm gestures to slash beats timed to music in a futuristic virtual environment. As the game involves both dancing and movement, it has been used as an exercise tool. Apple plans to promote the headset as a fitness device in addition to a gaming and media consumption device.

Earlier this week, the founder of the company behind survival game "No Man's Sky" tweeted an Apple emoji, which also led to speculation that No Man's Sky will have an announcement for Apple's platforms at WWDC. No Man's Sky is available for several VR platforms, such as the PlayStation VR.

Apple has been hinting at the headset this week, teasing the dawn of a "new era" on Twitter and "coding new worlds" on its developer site. Multiple rumors indicate that Apple is ready to show off the AR/VR headset and the xrOS software that will run on it, and while it won't launch until later this year, announcing in June will give developers time to create virtual reality experiences for the device.

What a dumb looking game. If thats a headline app for this headset, I'll make a hard pass.

I don't care about this Beat Sabre ?
I don't think you all understand how popular Beat Saber is. Beat Saber is the #1 most popular VR game (and hell most popular VR app) period. Millions buy VR headsets just for Beat Saber, that's how big it is. The game is so big they have licensed tracks from major artists like The Weeknd, Queen, Gorillaz, BTS, Imagine Dragons, Green Day, and more

I think people are really not appreciating the unintentional comedy factor that will happen when people demo this headset and Apple Store and being able to watch them flail around like total morons while grandparents try to learn how to use the Google on their new iPhone 2 tables away.

Then current VR games must really suck.
My guy the biggest most popular game in the world is a game where everything is blocks



Just because it doesn't appeal to you, does not mean it doesn't appeal to others. Beat Saber is a damn good addicting rhythm game, and it's great exercise too, which is why it's very popular. It's easy to get into, easy to understand, and loads of fun.

Come to think of it, I never gave a **** about their stupid headset anyway ...
VR (even more so than regular gaming) requires playing to judge any game fairly. This game is both relaxing and energetic and loads of fun. It might not be a system-selling title for $3k but it is for PSVR. You're missing out.

Part of the appeal of Beat Saber is how easily mod-able it is.

On a $3,000 headset with the AppStore restriction against adding new music / levels for free? Yeah -- tough sell.
