The latest music pack consists of six Green Day songs, including tracks from their current and past discography. Before the announcement at The Game Awards, Green Day performed live and played their classic track ‘Welcome to Paradise’ from their 1994 album Dookie and then a new track, ‘Father of All…’, from their upcoming 2020 album Father of All Motherfuckers. Beat Saber gameplay appeared on the big screen behind them and it became clear they were announcing a music pack for the game. Here are the six included tracks:
- Fire, Ready, Aim
- Father of All…
- American Idiot
- Boulevard of Broken Dreams
360° and 90° levels are also launching, though Beat Saber tweeted earlier in the day that PSVR would receive “special 90° Levels as part of the next PS VR update.”
Some of you are asking if rotating levels are coming to PS VR.
Yes! We’re bringing special 90° Levels as part of the next PS VR update! With 28 lanes of notes coming at you, it’s a blast to play! Other platforms will have both 360° and 90° Levels available. pic.twitter.com/wVGi4jzo0u

The new 360° and 90° levels “span a variety of songs from the core Beat Saber game as well as the various paid music packs” and are “custom engineered gameplay modes that open up the playing field and radically change the game.” If you’ve purchased any previous music packs, you won’t need to purchase additional 360° or 90° versions of those songs.
