Green Day Have Added Their Own Music Pack To Virtual Reality Game Beat Saber
Fresh from their performance at the 2019 Game Awards in which it was revealed in the run-up that they’d also be making a video-game related announcement, Green Day have now unveiled a special music pack for the virtual reality game Beat Saber.
The band have released a music pack containing the songs American Idiot, Boulevard Of Broken Dreams, Father Of All…, Fire, Ready, Aim, Holiday and Minority for $8.99, with the unveiling of this pack also coinciding with players getting access to Beat Saber’s 360-degree gameplay.

“VR is rock’n’roll – it’s fearless, it’s challenging the way things are done, it’s never taking no for an answer,” says frontman Billie Joe Armstrong. “It’s also the most engaging and unique way for fans around the world to experience our music. Strap in!”
