VRFC is bringing football to virtual reality headsets

Viral Sport | Published:

The first-person five-a-side title is the first of its kind for the VR arena.

Every football fan has day-dreamed of setting the Premier League alight and being heralded as the next big thing – now a new VR game is aiming to capture a sense of that feeling.

VRFC or Virtual Reality Football Club is out on Tuesday for PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, and is the first VR attempt at a first person football game.

Players move the controllers in a running motion to move, with button presses on either controller to help with dribbling and actually kicking the ball.

This has been the key reason a major VR football game hasn’t launched previously, now VRFC is hoping to smash that particular glass ceiling.

The game will support a range of training activities to get players used to the novel way of controlling movement before playing a competitive game – which can be up to four-a-side with goalkeepers powered by artificial intelligence.

Virtual reality remains a popular but increasingly niche gaming market, but the introduction of a successful football game to the gaming catalogue could help turn more users on to the platform.
