Curve Digital and Kuju have proudly announced that their turn-based strategy game based on hit Netflix show Narcos, Narcos: Rise of The Cartels is launching in late 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. A digital release will be taking place first with a physical release planned for sometime later in Q4 of 2019 and available to pre-order from select retailers now.
Narcos: Rise of The Cartels will allow players to relive the events of series one of the Netflix T.V show. Players will be able to take on the role of the Medellin Cartel or the DEA in two distinct campaigns. Taking place in the 1980’s Columbia, a time when El Patrón’s influence is rapidly growing, thanks to drugs, corruption, and violent crime. Will you help the Narco’s empire grow or will you be responsible for toppling it as part of the DEA?
The game will feature locations and characters from the popular T.V show. You’ll work alongside some of them, each with their own unique abilities that will ultimately help turn the tides in your fight for good with the DEA or evil with Narcos.
Turn-based strategy fans will get to experience a new and exciting take on the game type with Narcos: Rise of The Cartels. Units on both sides will move simultaneously, and some there some new mechanics like the ability to take third-person command over units in critical moments.
