Beat Games announced the latest music pack coming to Beat Saber: a selection of songs from pop singer/rapper (and classically trained flutist) Lizzo. It’s available now for Meta Quest and Rift platforms.
The pack has several of Lizzo’s hits, including “Truth Hurts,” “About Damn Time” and “Good as Hell.” In total, it has nine of her songs, including three from her new album. Players destroy blocks in a new environment with a yellow-and-purple color scheme, including sabers.
I got the chance to try out the new tracks, and they a solid addition to Beat Saber’s base roster. It’s an energetic pack, and Lizzo’s upbeat tunes are fun to slash blocks to. The songs also contain arc and chain blocks, a recent addition to the game that adds a new layer of challenge. While the bops aren’t quite as high-energy as the BTS set or as creatively bizarre as the offerings from Billie Eilish, it fits the Beat Saber aesthetic.
The pack is available for $12 on Beat Saber’s platforms, with songs costing $2 individually, as per usual. Sadly, it does not offer the option replace the sabers with a crystal flute — I would have found that very amusing.
