Over the past few years, virtual reality rhythm games have become incredibly popular. While experiences like Audica are on the horizon from acclaimed developers like Harmonix, there is one game that definitely reigns supreme. It's the one that started the craze to begin with.
Beat Saber is all about keeping rhythm. In each hand, you hold a Star Wars lightsaber, one blue and one red. When the music starts, small blocks with colored arrows begin scrolling toward you, and it's up to you to slash the blocks in the direction noted by the arrow. There are also obstacles that come your way, which you have to avoid by sidestepping.

Ever since Beat Saber launched, fans have been asking for more content, and it looks like that's finally happening. Today, the team announced that a new music pack would drop in March. The game's official Twitter account noted, "We have the date! Our first music pack lands in Beat Saber on March 14." Aside from that, the interface is also getting updated so players can easily browse existing soundtracks and upcoming music packs.
Beat Saber has not only won over a lot of gamers, but it garnered stellar reviews. It's a shame that it's only available on Windows and PlayStation VR. Microsoft doesn't seem to be interested in releasing a headset for Xbox One anytime soon, but hopefully that'll change in 2020 with the release of new hardware. A lot of gamers want titles like Beat Saber on the platform, and at the moment is seems like a missed opportunity because HoloLens is an enterprise-only device.
