Finally, we have confirmation that the Beat Saber will officially become available on Oculus Quest. Today, on the eve of GDC 2019, Oculus officially confirmed that the virus sensation would hit their autonomous VR headset later this year.
“Beat Saber on Oculus Quest allows you to literally take any step you want. You can move easily and do not need to monitor any cables, which is priceless. I’m a big fan of Rift, but Beat Saber on Quest is a whole new level of experience! The visual effects look absolutely amazing, the gameplay is sleek and polished, and the tracking is just great. Observing the evolution of the game on this platform was quite exciting, ”explains Michaela Dvorak, head of marketing at Beat Games, on the Oculus blog.
Free movement in VR is very important, especially in games where you need to move a lot. In addition, such devices are available. No PC, no cables, no waiting — you just put on a helmet and play. You can take it with you wherever you go and show your friends and family. With stand-alone headsets that are entering the market, more people will be happy to get into VR. The more people joining the community of VR players, the more attractive it becomes for developers. This is an amazing way to increase the popularity of the VR industry. We think these are steps in the right direction. And with autonomous VR, we can move literally anywhere.
