Netflix Narcos: Rise of the Cartels is a new turn-based strategy game, coming to the PC in late 2019

Curve Digital and Kuju have announced Narcos: Rise of the Cartels; a brutal tactical turn-based strategy game that is based on Narcos. To celebrate the announcement, Curve and Kuju have released a new trailer. This trailer showcases the game’s stylish visuals and authentic Narcos atmosphere.

Narcos: Rise of the Cartels allows players to relive the events of the first season. As such, players will take the side of either the Medellin Cartel or the DEA in two distinct campaigns.

“In 1980’s Colombia El Patrón’s influence is rapidly expanding, with drugs, corruption and crime spreading out from the Colombian town of Medellin. America is now starting to take notice. Do you help the Narcos’ drug empire rise to the top under the watchful eye of El Patrón, or topple the growing criminal enterprise alongside Steve Murphy as the DEA?”

Narcos: Rise of the Cartels promises to feature iconic locations and characters from the show. Therefore, players will have the chance to step into the criminal underworld alongside characters such as El Mexicano, Murphy, Peña, Primo and more. Each character will have their own unique gameplay abilities and perks. Players will explore familiar scenery from the show and take a pivotal role in world-altering events.

According to the teams, fans of turn-based strategy will experience an exhilarating new take on the genre. The game will feature units on both sides moving simultaneously and innovative new mechanics. These mechanics will allow players to take direct third-person command over their units in critical moments. Players will form their team from a variety of class-specific roles, upgrade their skills and join leading characters on the path to dominance.
