NFL Pro Era VR launched today — hands-on with the first official NFL VR game


Today, the National Football League (opens in new tab), the National Football League Players Association, and StatusPRO, Inc. announced the launch of NFL PRO ERA (opens in new tab), a VR football experience. I recently got to play it at a special pre-launch event. The first-person VR game puts you in the helmet of your favorite team’s quarterback. That’s right; you get to be the quarterback, call the plays and throw the ball to your favorite players. 

NFL PRO ERA is the first-ever NFL and NFLPA-licensed virtual reality (VR) simulation gaming title, and it is available globally on Meta Quest 2 and PlayStation VR platforms. NFL PRO ERA allows users like me to relive their glory days on the virtual gridiron. The game grants users the ability to experience the game from an NFL player’s point of view with a first-person 3D immersive football gaming experience. NFL PRO ERA features the NFLPA group license, which allows fans to play the current NFL roster in the game.
