From Avatar outfits and themed environments to football games and beyond, there are plenty of ways to celebrate the big game in VR. Here’s a rundown of the highlights so you can formulate your game plan:

Foo Fighters in Horizon Venues

Whether or not you’re a football fan, we’ve got an exciting reason to jump into VR after the big game: Foo Fighters will rock out in VR in Horizon Venues on February 13!* This is your chance to get free front-row seats to watch the legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Famers as they perform an exclusive concert in VR—all without leaving your house. Click here to learn more.

Horizon Venues Lobby Makeover

Before jumping into the concert, hang out in the Horizon Venues lobby for a football-themed treat. The tree centerpiece will be temporarily replaced by a giant football and goal post—the perfect backdrop for a game day selfie. Banners, balloons, and pennant flags will complete the ambiance, and you’ll find doors that let you hop over into Horizon Worlds for more football-themed activities for people 18+ in the US and Canada.

Horizon Worlds Activities

The Horizon Worlds Plaza will also be decked out, so people 18+ in the US and Canada can hang out and meet new people in a football-themed social space. You can then jump into additional football-themed games and experiences, including Arena Clash: Quarterback Edition, a laser tag-inspired team game.

You’ll also find a recreation of Questy’s, the nostalgic novelty pizza joint from our latest ad. We shared a sneak peek of the commercial this morning on Good Morning America, and you can also check it out below.

Avatar Outfits

We’re excited to partner with the NFL to bring NFL football fandom to Avatars. With Super Bowl LVI just around the corner on February 13, we wanted to give fans a chance to show off and celebrate their favorite teams. From now until February 28, you’ll be able to outfit your Avatar to support the Cincinnati Bengals or Los Angeles Rams—or if you can’t bring yourself to cheer for either team, there’s also a neutral Super Bowl LVI shirt you can choose instead.

Show off your Super Bowl LVI gear anywhere you use your Avatar, whether on Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, or in VR. Wear it proudly while you can!

MVP Football - The Patrick Mahomes Experience

Play as superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes and feel like a true MVP as you play high school, college, and pro football games. Call the plays, throw super charged passes, and stiff arm oncoming defenders in slow motion in this high adrenaline VR football game.

2MD: VR Football Unleashed

2MD is a groundbreaking motion-controlled VR football game. Draw the plays and throw, hand-off, or run the ball before the clock runs out! Throw like a pro with realistic motion controls in a seated, standing, room-scale, or full field-scale experience.

*The show will start at 8:00 pm PT or following the conclusion of the game, whichever occurs later.
