It's time to jam with your friends -- Beat Saber PS4 multiplayer has finally launched for PSVR, a little over a year after the feature came to the rhythm and music VR game on PC via SteamVR and Oculus.

Beat Saber has been officially out for a couple of years now and has gradually added more and more content over the years such as three tracks from Camellia and a batch of songs from Linkin Park. Multiplayer gameplay, however, was missing in action on PlayStation; now, it's finally arrived on the PS4 for PSVR players.

Beat Saber PS4 Multiplayer Launches -- Without Crossplay

As with most PlayStation games, playing Beat Saber PS4 multiplayer will require you to have an active PlayStation Plus membership. (Naturally, you'll need a PSVR headset as this is a VR-exclusive game). Unfortunately, it appears to be lacking Crossplay functionality with PC players as noted in the Twitter thread announcing the launch of Beat Saber PS4 multiplayer.

"Few notes," read the tweet. "PlayStation Plus subscription is needed to be able to play Multiplayer on PS VR. Cross-play for PS VR is currently not supported."

Aside from multiplayer functionality, this update also adds a couple of neat features. Participating players will get to see their stats and stand on a winner's podium after a game is over. Additionally, you'll be able to set custom colors for your avatar to make yourself stand out in the crowd.

Beat Saber multiplayer launched for PC last year on both SteamVR and Oculus and it featured Crossplay between those two ecosystems. Beat Games noted at the time that it was "exploring what's possible." Today's tweet also takes care to say "current not supported," so there's still a chance that Beat Saber Crossplay between PC and PS4 will arrive at a future date.

Hopefully, PC and PS4 players will be able to enjoy Beat Saber multiplayer together sooner rather than later. In the meantime, you can buy Beat Saber for PC and PlayStation via its official website.
