If you are a fan of hip-hop, it is likely that you are also a fan of the acclaimed Netflix series Narcos. In both mediums, connoisseurs can imagine living the life of a drug dealer that is slinging heavy weight. The good folks at Curve Digital looks to take things a step further by letting you actually simulate the life of a Medellin Cartel kingpin in their upcoming game, Narcos: Rise Of The Cartels. If being a dealer isn’t your thing, you can alternatively play the role of a DEA agent trying to take the cartel down.
The game will be set in Colombia during the first season of the show, which focused on the exploits of Pablo Escobar. Curve Digital announced:
Publisher Curve Digital, in collaboration with Gaumont and developer Kuju, announced today, the Q3 2019 release of Narcos: Rise of the Cartels, a new game for PC’s and consoles based on Gaumont’s Emmy® and Golden Globe nominated hit series, Narcos. A newly launched teaser trailer reveals that Narcos: Rise of the Cartels will follow the events of the first season of Narcos, in a story narrated by El Patron himself, where players will take the role of the Medellin Cartel or the DEA in a tactical turn-based action adventure.
