We’ve been writing about the music-licensing (and, indeed, music-selling) efforts of Facebook-owned VR music game Beat Saber for some time. By February this year the game had sold more than 4m copies, and 40m songs to those players.
Now it has a new music pack that has been launched in collaboration with a label, rather than with an individual artist. It’s called the Beat Saber: Interscope Mixtape (see if you can guess which label it is!) and has been launched within the Oculus Quest and Rift versions of the game. It includes seven tracks from the likes of Kendrick Lamar, the Pussycat Dolls, Maroon 5 and even – get your VR headset and backwards-baseball-cap combos ready – Limp Bizkit.
The pack costs $9.99, although the individual tracks and their ‘beatmaps’ (the structure to play them in the game’s levels) can also be bought individually for $1.99 apiece.
