This fall, the NFL's first official licensed game for virtual reality platforms is available. This will allow you to see the NFL through a different perspective.
StatusPRO is currently developing NFL Pro Era. It is due to debut on Meta Quest as well as PlayStation VR. The NFL Players Association has licensed the game, which allows for player names and likenesses.
Troy Jones, cofounder of StatusPRO said, “When you think about it, you're finally immersing yourselves as the professional athlete and seeing it in an a way that's never been seen before.” It is the future. We see it as the next era in gaming and the way that people will consume sport.
Jones, who was a former college quarterback at several schools, cofounded StatusPRO alongside Andrew Hawkins (former NFL wide receiver). They hope former players will help to make the virtual reality experience more authentic and understandable.
StatusPRO has been developing virtual reality technology over the past two year for NFL teams. Then, they moved on to creating a game open to the public.
Jay Juneau, StatusPRO executive producer, said that “the biggest difference is that we are purely looking at the players' perspective.” “You are not a coach. You are not a GM. You are not the owner. You are an NFL player. That's what we emphasized.”
The game has entertainment value but also aims to make fans more familiar with the experience of quarterbacks at the scrimmage line and the things they see when they snap a snap. Jones explained that players will be able to see if they can complete any pass they might have seen, or criticised., Oder Make it on TV.
Hawkins said, “In experience, you can play quarterback in a NFL game.” “You can make the right decisions.”
Juneau stated that there would be approximately 200 faces in the game, but that technology limitations will limit the number of generic faces. To create a realistic experience, players will be able to identify their body type, number, and statistical characteristics. Ratings will also be based on the collected data.
