BeFootball’s VR SuperPlayer Aims To Score Big In The Metaverse

“…we are developing the world’s first immersive metaverse of football”.

BeFootball, a tech company that designs, develops and markets immersive products tailored to the football industry has launched SuperPlayer, a VR football game. 

SuperPlayer has two game modes and takes place in real-life soccer stadiums that have been, well, virtualized. Keeper modes allow users to play as goalkeeper and save as many shots as they can. Header mode on the other hand lets the user play as a striker who must score goals using their head. 

Both game modes allow competition between users where one player can emerge as the best goalkeeper or best striker. The company has also announced that it is organizing the very first Immersive World Cup where it will reward winners with up to $3,000 in prizes and any user from anywhere can compete remotely. 

Iker Zuasti, CEO of BeFootball, said: “BeFootball is born to revolutionize the football industry through virtual reality and SuperPlayer is our first big bet: we are developing the world’s first immersive metaverse of football”.

Come November 20, users can select one of the 32 official World Cup teams and play matches in either Header or Goalkeeper mode against other teams in the acclaimed World Cup tournament until December 18, which is the scheduled World Cup final date. 

The World Cup matches users play, the higher their score will increase, which will push them higher in the rankings for first place. BeFootball will announce the winners once the FIFA 2022 World Cup in Qatar is concluded.

SuperPlayer is available for free in Meta’s Quest store and is the first step from GoFootball towards creating an immersive metaverse.
