The NFL has never been shy about diving into avante-garde, au courant technologies to engage its most ardent fans. Last September, the national sports league announced its partnership with Dapper Labs (opens in new tab) to create NFT-based video highlights for NFL enthusiasts.

Now, the NFL is plunging into the world of VR gaming, allowing its fans to immerse themselves into the world of professional football. NFL Pro Era, developed by StatusPRO, Inc., lets gamers enjoy the thrill of scoring touchdowns, tackling opponents, and strategizing winning plays.

With NFL Pro Era, you can lead your team to a Super Bowl and enhance your quarterback skills by participating in drills. You can even play catch with friends in your favorite NFL stadium.  

NFL Pro Era is coming to Meta Quest and Playstation VR.
