Now You Can Run Your Own Cartel With Netflix’s Narcos Mobile App

1 minute read

A mobile video game based on the Netflix series “Narcos”—centered around the history of the rise of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar and his cartel in the 1980s—will be released in September, just in time for the second season premiere of the popular show.

The free mobile app, named “Narcos: Cartel Wars,” will partner players with a cartel lieutenant and advice from the show’s characters as users lead their own drug cartel, according to FTX Games’ website, which teamed up with “Narcos” producer Gaumont Television.

The game’s release corresponds with the premiere of the 10-episode season two—starring Wagner Moura as Escobar—which will debut on Netflix Sept. 2.

“’Narcos’ is about a lot more than violence, money and power,” Aaron Berndtson, FTX Games’ head of business development, told Variety. “We really wanted to explore the moral ambiguity from the show, where right and wrong are subjective. We’re very excited to put these choices into the player’s hands.”
