'NFL Pro Era': The 1st NFL-Licensed VR Game Title

    • The new gaming experience gives a first-person perspective through the lens of a QB.
    • StatusPRO raised $5.2 million in investment money, including contributions from LeBron James and Naomi Osaka.

Football video game fans will be able to venture far beyond “Madden” this fall.

On Wednesday, the NFL and StatusPRO Inc. announced a new football game, “NFL Pro Era.” 

The game boasts the first-ever NFL- and NFLPA-licensed virtual reality simulation that’ll be available on Meta Quest and PlayStation.

The experience gives a first-person perspective which enables gameplay through the lens of a quarterback via a 3D experience. 

“NFL Pro Era” partnered with Ravens QB Lamar Jackson, who stars in the game’s trailer — which takes you inside the locker room and tunnel, adding stadium sights and sounds and simulating a team huddle.

StatusPRO Inc. raised roughly $5.2 million in investment money, including contributions from big names such as LeBron James, Naomi Osaka, Jimmy Iovine, and Maverick Carter.
