Gaumont Television has signed a deal with FTX Games to launch Narcos: Cartel Wars, a mobile game based on the hit Netflix series.
Charting the hunt for Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar, season two of Narcos lands on Netflix in September and the accompanying free-to-play game will see players step into the shoes of an up-and-coming cartel lieutenant, with guidance provided by characters from the show.
“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.”
