A free update to Beat Saber adds a new song pack and game mechanics.
OST 5 features six new songs from fan-favourite artists.
New game mechanics have also been included: arc and chain notes. Judging by the new trailer, players will now need to follow the lines between blocks with their sabers to continue a combo.
A new lighting system has also been implemented that significantly boosts the graphics. There are now 36 new maps in total in the game.
