Fly a drone like a professional with DCL - The Game, which takes flight with a new launch trailer!
Pilot your own drone and race with DCL - The Game, the brand new flight simulator based on the Drone Champions League! Real drone pilots will enjoy DCL - The Game, as well as other gamers looking for the speed rush.
Drones are a bit part of life today, and with an increase in the way we use these little machines they're getting represented in video games (including in Watch_Dogs 2. However a brand new game from developer Climax Studios and publisher THQ Nordic is taking on the Drone Champions League with the release of DCL - The Game. Swoop under bridges, high in the sky and take a look at the new launch trailer to get an idea of what awaits:
As a pilot of a virtual drone, you need good reflexes, because at insane speed you'll dash over 24 flight routes with authentic drones, some of which are even based on real models, such as the snow half-pipes from LAAX and the Ehrenberg castle ruins near Reutte. Authenticity was obviously important to the developers, because it is even possible to control the drones in DCL - The Game with real drone controllers.
DCL - The Game Features

ARCADE OR SIMULATION?
DCL - The Game presents the perfect challenge for every experience level. You can have fun with the Arcade mode even if you have never seen a drone before. You can improve your skills as an amateur pilot or you can practice and compete as an experienced pilot. You will be able to fly in four flight modes:
Arcade Mode: Perfect for racing thanks to the automated altitude control and simplified controls.
GPS Mode: Flies like your standard camera drone, with stabilization and altitude control: it's Ideal to practice your piloting and filming skills, but not designed for racing.
Angle Mode: Also known as Stabilized mode, it's available on most amateur racing drones and great for practicing. Not ideal for top racing performance.
Acro Mode: This is how the real drone racing and freestyle pilots control their drones. You will have the complete control over the aircraft, in order to compete at the highest levels. It will take some time and dedication to master but it will allow you to experience flying at its fullest!
