Beat Saber now has 90Hz assist for the Oculus Quest 2
(Pocket-Lint) – Back in November 2020, Oculus announced that the Quest 2 would receive system-wide support for the 90 Hz refresh rate. Then it was up to the developers to introduce this feature for their specific games.
Beat Saber was supposed to be one of the first games to work with it. In addition to SUPERHOT, Echo VR, Echo VR, vacation simulator, job simulator, Racket: Nx and Space Pirate Trainer. However, it would be up to the game’s developers to add support for the new and improved refresh rate, so players would have to wait for it to roll out.
Now it seems that Beat Games, the studio behind Beat Saber, is ready for this rollout and more:
New update released across platforms. Read the following thread for some highlights:
