Narcos: Rise of the Cartels available now

22 Nov 2019

Curve Digital and Kuju are proud to announce that Narcos: Rise of the Cartels, a brutal tactical turn-based game based on Narcos, the multi-award-winning Netflix series from Gaumont, is available now for PC and PlayStation 4. Nintendo Switch owners will have the opportunity to choose their side on November 21st, with Xbox One entering the war on November 22nd.

Combining turn-based tactical strategy with brutal real-time combat, Narcos: Rise of the Cartels follows the first season of the award-winning TV series through two distinct campaigns that offer vastly different perspectives on the infamous 80s drug war. Should you help build the Medellin Cartel’s rapidly expanding narcotics empire under the watchful gaze of El Patrón, or fight against them tooth and nail alongside Agent Murphy as the DEA?

Each campaign has its own iconic locations taken directly from the show, from Colombia’s impenetrable sun-drenched jungles to the damp streets of Medellin itself. Recognisable characters from the series are ready and waiting to back you up – and each have their own unique perks to help turn the tide in battle.
