During the Meta Quest gaming showcase, we got our first look at NFL Pro Era, an officially licensed NFL title for VR.
NFL Pro Era Revealed
A few weeks ago, we announced that an official NFL licensed title was coming to Meta Quest and PSVR2. Developed by StatusPro, the game puts you in the cleats of an NFL quarterback. It tests your ability to see what the QB sees and challenges you to make the right play. Similar to the Madden franchise, the NFL Pro Era will have yearly releases.
The gameplay reveal includes a cameo appearance from Baltimore Ravens quarterback, Lamar Jackson. Players are tasked with running the offense, reading defenses, and calling audibles if necessary. Players also can step into the locker room of their favorite teams.
NFL Pro Era has a Fall 2022 release window. You can play it on PSVR2 and Meta Quest 2.
StatusPRO: Technology Made by Athletes
The NFL plans to leverage StatusPRO’s athlete-led technology and work alongside its experienced team of developers to change sports gaming. This, they say, will give fans a first-person experience similar to their favorite football players.
As we receive more updates, we will post about them. Until then, you can sign up for the StatusPRO newsletter to receive updates.
Andrew Hawkins and Troy Jones are both former players turned tech startups. StatusPro is their company. StatusPro already has a partnership with the NFL.
