Rezzil’s virtual reality (VR) simulation platform for training professional football players has been used by clubs around the world for several years now. Today, that expertise is available at home with the launch of Rezzil Player 21 on Steam and Viveport.
Employed by elite clubs such as Manchester United, PSG and Arsenal, the Rezzil platform provides football fans with real-world drills and challenges which have been developed in collaboration with top sports coaches and physios.
Rezzil Player 21 is free on either store and features a ‘Finishing Challenge’ with 3-time limits – 30, 60 or 90 seconds and an ‘Endless’ mode which lets you take on a more casual practice session. To take the experience one step further the additional Color Combos DLC can be purchased, a drill taken from the pro-level version.
Adding to the authenticity you’ll be able to buy genuine Adidas boots and balls like the Predator Mutators or the official Mexico 86 ball. The more you practice and build up those stats you’ll earn achievements and XP to unlock new in-game kit.
“Rezzil has proven to be an essential training tool for many of the world’s top football clubs, and we’re delighted to be offering people at home the chance to play like the pros with Rezzil Player 21,” said Adam Dickinson, Development Director of Rezzil in a statement. “We’re very aware that the current pandemic has really affected both pro and amateur players and so Rezzil is a great way to help keep their fine footballing skills in focus.”
As Rezzil Player 21 is a football simulator you can’t simply slip on any old PC VR compatible headset to play. The software requires at least one Vive Tracker although Rezzil does advise two to get the full experience. Therefore support is limited to the HTC Vive/Vive Pro/Vive Cosmos Elite and Valve Index.
