Curve Digital and Kuju have announced today that Narcos: Rise of the Cartels will be releasing on November 19th for PS4 and PC, November 21st for Nintendo Switch, and November 22nd on Xbox One.
The announcement comes in the form of a brand new trailer that gives us another look at Narcos: Rise of the Cartels in action, with both the DEA and the Narcos dealing as good as they get to one another.
If you’re unfamiliar with Narcos: Rise of the Cartel, it’s a turn-based strategy game based on the hit Netflix series. I’ve still not gotten around to watching it… Fans of the show will no doubt be interested, but perhaps the XCOM style gameplay will put some people off, especially those who aren’t interested in strategy games and prefer some old-fashioned third-person shooter mechanics.
BASED ON THE HIT NETFLIX SERIES – Authenticity is at the core of the Narcos: Rise of the Cartels experience and highly recognisable and iconic characters from the TV show are available to control and play, each offering unique gameplay opportunities.
EVERY WAR HAS TWO SIDES – Featuring two unique campaigns Narcos: Rise of the Cartels enables you to see the war from both sides. Choose to side with the DEA and fight alongside Steve Murphy to bring down the drug empire, or choose to side with the Narcos in order to help fund, grow and expand the empire of El Patrón.
FAST-PACED TACTICAL COMBAT – Narcos: Rise of the Cartels takes tactical combat to a whole new level with units possessing the ability to move individually one after another or multiple times in one turn, meaning the pace is always ramped up. Players will have to plan their actions cautiously as they will face lasting consequences.
COUNTERACT AND KILL-SHOT – Innovative gameplay mechanics keep the turn-based combat fresh by allowing the player to take third-person control of units in order to engage enemies directly, providing the opportunity to deal critical damage at optimal moments.
