(Pocket-lint) - Back in November 2020, Oculus announced that the Quest 2 was getting system-wide 90Hz refresh rate support. Then it was up to developers to introduce that capability for their specific games.
Beat Saber was set to be one of the first games to work with it. Alongside SUPERHOT, Echo VR, Echo VR, Vacation Simulator, Job Simulator, Racket: Nx and Space Pirate Trainer. It would be up to the game's developers to add support for the new and improved refresh rate though, so gamers would have to wait until that was rolled out.
