A downloadable game

To celebrate 1st year anniversary of Beat Saber release on PC we are bringing you one of the very early builds of the game for free. This build represents the game which was only one month in development and had just one temporary song. Everything is a little bit rough around the edges, but the core is there and the game is playable.

- This is not a full version of Beat Saber or a demo.
- Beat Saber Origin works only on SteamVR and there is no UI menu.
- There might be bugs.
- If you want to check the full game please visit www.beatsaber.com.

so here's how you can play this because i don't know if everyone here knows how to use steamvr.

you're gonna need a vr capable pc, a vr headset that works with steamvr (here's a list of working headsets: https://www.businessinsider.com/guides/tech/which-vr-headsets-work-with-steam ), a cable that can connect to the pc and the headset, the oculus software and steam (the last 2 are on the pc. oculus software can be found here: https://www.oculus.com/download_app/?id=1582076955407037).

this guide will be for the quest 2, because that's what i use. make sure it doesn't enter sleep mode during this whole process.

1. open steam, and install the steamvr software. it may not show up in your games library, but thats because you need to uncheck 'Games' in the drop down menu above the game library side menu, and then it should show up along with a bunch of servers for games.

2. connect your headset using the cable.

3. once you've connected the quest 2, it will ask inside the headset if you would like to enable oculus link or quest link. select 'enable'. it will open a different menu, which is an old oculus menu.

4. open steamvr on the computer. the headset will open the steamvr application. wait for the headset to load the software, and follow the setup instructions inside steamvr on the headset.

5. once steamvr is fully loaded on the quest, download Beat Saber Origins on the pc. make sure to extract the files from the zip file.

IMPORTANT: you need to install Beat Saber Origins on a web browser, otherwise this does not work.

6. open the exe file inside the Beat Saber Origins folder on the computer. it will not actually open any tabs or windows.

7. look in the headset. it should say 'Next Up: Beat Saber Old' or 'Beat Saber Origins'.

8. if everything is correct, it should open!

if anything was unclear, please reply.

Great game, one of my favorite for sure. And so much polishes since this early version (this one remembers me an early build I had the chance to test at Unite Europe 2016 ;) ) ! I would also appreciate feedback from an early build of a petanque (i.e french boule game) multiplayer simulator available here https://vrforfunandnoprofit.itch.io/petanquevr

if some of you are interested in testing it !


Its a huge hit for vr.I dont own the game myself but did download and play this free item.Jesus God's Son died for you,He is alive!


this game is so brilliantly simple, but has room for creativity and I appreciate that


I just finished my first year of university, Beat Saber is what kept me going when things were tough. Thanks for a fantastic year, I hope there are many more to come!


looks good!


Thank you for sharing - a good stuff ++


Happy anniversary and thank you for sharing :D
