Beat Saber Adds Linkin Park Tracks as Latest DLC
Beat Games hadn't Given Up and got Linkin Park In The End.
The rhythm game scene isn’t what it used to be. Gone are the days of yearly updates to both the Guitar Hero and Rock Band franchises and weekly additions to their soundtracks. One game that’s proudly carrying the torch forwards however is Beat Saber.
The virtual reality rhythm hit has been a huge success since dropping on Oculus and PSVR and is the perfect game for VR officionados and casual players alike. The game has been no stranger to recieving additional music packs, with songs from Imagine Dragons, Green Day and Panic! At The Disco being added since launch. Now, after teasing it on Twitter for a couple of days, Beat Games has confirmed who their latest crossover is with – everybody’s favourite nu metal band, the legendary Linkin Park.
Revealed with a stylish trailer, the latest music pack comes complete with 11 of the bands biggest hits, including Numb, In The End and What I’ve done and launches today. The full list is as follows;
- Bleed It Out
- Breaking the Habit
- Given Up
- In The End
- New Divide
- One Step Closer
- Somewhere I Belong
- What I’ve Done
That’s not all the pack comes with either. Head of Marketing for Beat Games, Micheala Dvorak, confirmed on the Playstation Blog that:
“With this music pack, we are releasing a brand new game environment – a fully enclosed game area inspired by the tunnel scene you might remember from the ‘One Step Closer’ music video. The environment is also accompanied by a new four-color lighting scheme.”
The latest additions to Beat Saber coincide with a huge milestone for Linkin Park’s first album. Hybrid Theory, which is also considered one of their best albums, was released 20 years ago this October, a fact that will no doubt make all of us out there feel incredibly old.
