A multiplayer mode will be added to Beat Saber in a brand-new update next month, Beat Games has announced.
The update is expected to arrive on October 13, allowing players to create their own avatar before challenging both their friends and random opponents online. Beat Games is aiming to have the update arrive on all platforms simultaneously, however, in a tweet following the announcement, acknowledged that there may be a delay with the PS4 version.
“We are doing everything we can to make sure we release multiplayer simultaneously on all platforms on October 13,” the developer said. “But there might be a delay with the PS4 version.” More information is expected to arrive in the future through the game’s social media channels.
Accompanying the announcement was a brief trailer which outlined how the mode will look, and more notably, what the avatars will look like. You can check out the full tweet below:
