NFL Pro Era 2 continues the new annual sports series on Quest and PC VR headsets, though it's now been delayed until further notice.
Teased during June's Meta Quest Gaming Showcase, the NFL Pro Era sequel marks VR’s second official NFL game, featuring Lamar Jackson returning as the cover star. Previously planned for September 28, StatusPRO revealed that's now been pushed back through its Discord server and a new release date remains unconfirmed.
Announced earlier this month, NFL Pro Era 2's biggest change is a new head-to-head multiplayer mode, letting you battle online and "pitch your favorite teams against each other." Multiplayer Freeplay enhancements are also promised, allowing you to join other players to practice catching and passing tricks.
As for Career Mode, StatusPRO confirms NFL Pro Era 2 lets you take teams through multiple Super Bowls as your career progresses. Outlined gameplay improvements include "improved passing, improved player movement, improved AI for more accurate tackling and catches" and a redesigned locker room.
There's also a new 'Coach’s Confidence' rating for players, unlocking further plays and abilities when accuracy/efficiency improves. New post-play celebrations let you high-five and fist bump teammates, sideline interactions boost teammate abilities on the field. Finally, "wristband play calling" sees you call the necessary for winning.
