“Narcos: Rise of the Cartels allows players to relive the events of hit Netflix show, taking the side of either the Medellin Cartel or the DEA in two distinct campaigns,” reads the game’s official description. “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. Do you 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?”
