DCL - The Game has been out for about a month. Like many developers, they've released a special edition of their game, but this one's a doozy: it costs one million dollars, probably because it has an actual drone that you can pilot.
What is DCL - The Game all about? Check out this gameplay trailer to get a feel for what it's all about.
Let me be absolutely clear about this bundle: when I say "a drone that you can pilot", I don't mean something that you fly around with a controller on the ground. No, no, no.
Instead, this is a massive monster of a flying machine that you can actually sit in and fly. Technically speaking, I suppose it's less of a drone and more like some kind of badass hovercar.
Seriously, look at the manned racing drone in action from the Drone Champions League:
This manned drone may very well be a world first. Featuring six pairs of rotors, the "Big Drone" has 300kg of static thrust, weighs 216 lbs./98 kg, and can hit a top speed of 87 miles per hour. In the air.
The Big Drone is also highly acrobatic — it can turn on a time and may very well represent a new form of racing coming out of the Drone Champions League. And yes, you absolutely can do a barrel roll (although it might not deflect bullets as you'd hope).
Get a Taste of the Fun with DLC - The Game
I don't know about you, but I certainly don't have a spare million bucks sitting around. If you did, you could buy one of these three unique packages that include the following:
- DCL Manned Drone
- DCL - The Game for PC, Mac, PS4, and Xbox One
- One introduction week with world champions Mirko Cesena
- Free shipping
- 20 piloting days included
Since you're probably not a multi-millionaire, you're going to have to be satisfied with simply buying the game itself. It does seem pretty cool, though — you can zip around in high-speed arenas racing drones against competitors in a bunch of cool arenas.
You can pick up DLC - The Game on Steam right now at the much more reasonable price of $29.99 or your regional equivalent. If you're a bored multi-millionaire, you could be one of the three lucky people who will buy the DCL Ultimate Bundle. And finally, those of you who are simply content with watching can check out the real-world racing of the Drone Champions League at dcl.aero.
