People who enjoying sweating into their headsets and wildly flashing their arms rejoice: Beat Saber has finally been released on PS VR 2 for PS5 owners, and it’s also available as a free upgrade for those who own the original game on PS4. However, as a cross-gen game released on a PlayStation platform, you’re going to have a harder time than you need to to in order to download it for free.
To download Beat Saber for free on PS VR2 if you already own the original game, the easiest way is via the PlayStation Store website. For UK users, go here and sign in to your account. For US users, go here and sign in.
Once signed in, simply select the PS5 version from here, select add to library, then start downloading it if you’ve got that remote download setting enabled. You may have to scroll down to the separate versions listed below.
On the PS5 itself, the process is mostly the same. Go to the Store icon on the far left of your home dashboard, then search for Beat Saber. On the page listing, select the three white dots and then choose Select Version.
Select the PS5 version of Beat Saber, add it your library, and then start installing it.
If you already have the PS4 version of Beat Saber installed on your PS5, you can skip the part about visiting the PlayStation Store and just find it in the menu on the dashboard of your PS5.
Any DLC that you previously bought on the PS4 version of Beat Saber will also be available to you for free in the PS5 version, but you may need to add it to your library again from the store.
Beat Saber costs $29.99/£24.99 for both the PS4 and PS5 versions.
As for Beat Saber itself, few games have been quite as universally beloved in the virtual reality space. A rhythm game where you detroy blocks to the beat, Beat Saber has basically filled the space that the likes of Guitar Hero left behind. Many have tried to imitate it, but few have come close to the sheer sweaty joy of Beat Games’ smash hit.
