As part of the Meta Quest Games Showcase today, StatusPRO has officially announced its first fully licensed NFL football simulation game made for virtual reality headsets.
NFL Pro Era will have players assume the role of quarterback for their NFL team, as you compete in drills and face off against other teams in the league for a chance to play in the Super Bowl. The brief trailer gives us a glimpse at some of the things you will get to do, such as throwing passes, performing a QB scramble, and picking a play from your wristband playbook to name a few.
StatusPRO, the developer behind the game, is a sports technology company whose augmented and virtual reality products are already used by teams in the National Football League today.
According to the developer, NFL Pro Era will combine “innovative technology, data, and direct insights from athletes to unlock a unique opportunity for fans and immerse themselves in the NFL Metaverse.” Furthermore, the company and the NFL both said previously that the NFL Pro Era would complement the current NFL experiences on the market, most notably, EA’s Madden NFL series, in addition to a non-sim NFL football game currently in development by 2K.
NFL Pro Era is slated to launch this fall on Meta Quest and the PlayStation VR.
