The upcoming Beat Saber VR game seems to be getting closer and closer to release as we now can listen and see the second song to its soundtrack called “Escape” by Jaroslav Beck featuring Summer Haze.
The play style to Beat Saber seems to be more intricate now with more unique patterns. The original soundtrack also allows us to truly feel the beat of the song with the swing of our motion sensor controllers.
For those unfamiliar with Beat Saber, you get to wield two lightsabers in your hands to smash the oncoming beats. There are two differently squared tiles with arrows on top of them that will tell you on how to slice it.
You must grip the light saber and slice through the tile in the correct position. You’ll usually see the red tiles on the left and the blue tiles on the right. But sometimes, they will switch paths where you must re-orient your hands to match and slice the beat. In addition, you’ll find extra tiles with the letter “X” on them which you must skip over.
- Unique gameplay with a great feel – Beat Saber combines the satisfying feeling of cutting with emergent perception of rhythm.
- Handcrafted levels & music – All the basic levels and music in the game will be handcrafted to emphasise the music rhythm. The results are incomparable to similar games with generated content.
- Game longevity – The game can be played in short (few minutes) sessions in quick play mode or for many hours in career mode.
- Game accessibility – Anyone can understand basic game principles and play the game in just a few seconds.
Escape is the second song teased in the upcoming VR game and soundtrack. It also seems to be integrated with LIV that can provide a mixed reality experience for viewers.
You are able to see the combo counter on the left and the multiplier on the top right side. There still isn’t a concrete release date but it seems to be getting closer and closer to release.
