PSVR 2: Beat the Beats aims to challenge Beat Saber for the VR rhythm throne

Beat the Beats VR, a new rhythm game for Playstation VR 2 that combines boxing and music, will be released on February 27th. You use boxing techniques such as jab, block and uppercut, dodge or duck to driving beats. The principle is similar to Beat Saber, FitXR or Les Mills Bodycombat. However, the gameplay of Beat the Beats differs in the way you have to execute the punches: The punches don't come straight at you, but in arcs from different directions. This should result in more realistic movements, similar to a real boxing match.
