There’s An XCOMish Narcos Game, Which Just Might Work

There’s already one game based on Netflix’s excellent Narcos, and it sucks. The second game, though, is looking a lot more promising, as it’s a turn-based tactical combat experience similar to XCOM.

Announced today, the game is out in Spring 2019 for PC, Xbox One and PS4. For a licensed game coming so long after the show’s last airing, it looks OK! Given the nature of Narcos’ shootouts and factions a tactical game like this is actually a pretty good fit.

Interestingly, it’s being developed by Kuju, who once took an established turn-based tactical series (Advance Wars) and made it real-time (Battalion Wars). Let’s see how they go turning an action-packed TV show into a slower, turn-based experience.
