Apparently over 40 months in the making.
What you need to know
- The Beat Saber developer account took to Twitter to tease what appears to be a new feature for its game.
- The game’s main level creator confirmed the imagery is a new block type in the game.
- The new block type will not be used for published songs or maps.
Beat Saber, the virtual reality rhythm game available on Quest 2 and other VR headsets, will get a new block type since the game left Early Access in 2019.
Earlier this week, the developer tweeted an in-game image showing half a block and several sections trailing it on a curve. The community has speculated on what the new note might be, and has even nicknamed it “slider.”

Game’s leading level creator comfirmed Not long after, sticky notes were a new block type, not conversions. The level creator also stated that the new block is “over 40 months in the making” and will not be added to the old map, although it was considered.
The new notes should provide a different challenge to Beat Saber, one of the best Quest 2 games, with a longer swipe action to break the fast swipe of a normal note. Although, it will only be available in newer song packs, and this doesn’t include the recently released Lady Gaga DLC pack. The new notes will appear in the game soon, but no exact date has been announced.
