Narcos is getting a mobile game where you run your own drug cartel


Mobile games make publishers a lot of money, so it's unsurprising to find out the producers of Narcos are releasing an app with FTX Games allowing you to build your very own drug cartel.

Narcos: Cartel Wars will be free, but will of course offer in-app purchases, and will be released in tandem with the second season of Narcos on September 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."

The game will see you learning the ropes from El Patron himself before choosing what kind of leader you want to be: one who earns respect through loyalty, or one that puts profit above all, including the lives of your hermanos and hermanas.

In FTX's own words: "There is money and power to be made. From now on, nowhere is safe."
