Fans of the TV series Narcos have a game to look forward to on the horizon, with Narcos: Rise of the Cartels set to launch on consoles this year and next year. The game aims to capture the essence of the show, allowing players to control several of the characters from it. Now Amazon has updated the game’s product page, which reveals the game’s box art that you can see at the bottom of this post.
For those who are interested in the game, the following is the official product description from the Amazon page:
“Welcome to Colombia, 1980’s – the fires of El patron’s empire have been lit, its influence spanning Borders, and expansion unabated. Influence and corruption is rife; cops, Guards, politicians and those in between are falling into the pocket of the medellin cartel, and after years of production, America is finally taking notice. Narcos: Rise of the cartels tells the story of the hit Netflix TV series, of the Rise and fall of El patron. Choose your side and ally with the dea or conversely side with the narcos. Explore recognisable locations from the show and take a role in pivotal world-altering events and battles that will define and shift the war on drugs. Form your team from a variety of class-specific roles, join leading characters, upgrade your skills and take part in brutal turn-based combat, where your actions will have consequence. Engage with the strategic map and manage your resources to either expand the drug empire, or look to thwart it at every opportunity. Plata O plomo?”
Narcos: Rise of the Cartels is available now on PC, though it will launch for PS4 and Xbox One on December 10th. Switch owners will have to wait a little bit longer to get their hands on the game, with that version launching on January 28th, 2020. You can check out the box art below.
