Announced just over a month ago, Kuju Entertainment's take on the hit Netflix show Narcos already has a release date. Narcos: Rise of the Cartels brings tactical action to PlayStation 4 next month on 19th November.
You'll be able to side with either the Medellin Cartel or the DEA across two campaigns that retell the events of the TV show's first season. Described as fast-paced tactical combat, you'll have to plan your moves ahead of time as the choice between running for cover or taking a gang member down increases in importance. Iconic characters and locations are also said to crop up throughout the game's main narrative.
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 and it is up to the players to choose their side. They can 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
