Drone Racing Racing League (DRL) continues to expand and establish strategic alliances for the category’s growth. On this occasion, it reached an agreement with Nacon Gaming, a gaming products manufacturer under RIG and Nacon brands. Thus, they have become the official suppliers of headsets and controllers for the competition.
Their alliance is effective from this season (2021-2022). Nacon Gaming will offer RIG Commander Pro headsets as high-quality audio solutions so that DRL competitors can be fully and effectively immersed in their work.
Having a good audio system will prove vital to win or lose a race, as the perception of the environment becomes a determining factor that can play for or against. “…On the 10-year anniversary of the launch and as the first stadium-class audio solution for eSports, the RIG Commander PRO will be used in the DRL, the next evolution of eSports, combining live event competition with SIM virtual racing,” said Gregory Morquin, Global Business Director at Nacon.
