Re-telling the true story of the Colombian drug wars of the 1980s, “Narcos” has quickly become one of Netflix’s most celebrated shows. Narcos: Rise of the Cartels re-visits the first season of the acclaimed drama, allowing players to fight alongside Colombia’s local drug cartels, or fight to take them down as the imposing DEA in two distinct campaigns.
We’re excited to finally announce that Narcos: Rise of the Cartels is out now on Xbox One!
With iconic locations and characters from the show, Rise of the Cartels offers players the chance to step into their own criminal underworld alongside characters such as El Mexicano, Murphy, Peña, Primo and more – each with their own unique gameplay abilities and perks to help turn the tide of battle. Players will explore familiar scenery from the show and take a pivotal role in world-altering events that will define and shift the war on drugs.
For fans of tactical turn-based games, Rise of the Cartels offers a few new twists on the genre. Units on both sides can move one after the other or multiple times within one turn and players can counteract by taking direct control of units at critical moments. There are a wide variety of class-specific roles for players to choose from as they join key characters on the path to dominance.
In Rise of the Cartels, decisions have real consequences. Once a team member is eliminated, they’re gone for good. Players will have to carefully plan their movements and attacks if they want to get their whole team home safely – no matter the side they’re fighting for.
With iconic moments direct from the show, unique tactical mechanics and brutal gameplay moments, Narcos: Rise of the Cartels really captures the gritty feel of Netflix’s classic show. We can’t wait for you to play it and find out for yourselves.
