First look at Netflix's Narcos as a video game

Charlie work.

Earlier in the year, British publisher Curve Digital announced it was working on a video game version of hit Netflix show Narcos.

If you haven't seen it, Narcos is a gritty Colombian cartel drama starring the guy who's head got popped on Game of Thrones. It's good watching, if you have the stomach for it.

Today we got our first glimpse at the game Curve is cooking up by way of its development studio partner Kuju.

It's a turn-based action strategy game where you play as either the DEA or the cartel, the below trailer states, and it is now set for launch on PC and consoles in Q3 2019 - not in the spring, as originally intended.

Dying Light 2 will take "at least" 500 hours to complete, says Techland

"But a regular player should finish the story + side quests in less than 100 hours, so don't worry!"

BioWare "laser-focused on building back the trust of our fans and community"

And the next Dragon Age will be a "single-player experience that is built on choices that matter".

Elden Ring overtakes Dying Light 2 to become Steam's most wishlisted game

And in doing so, it knocks Dying Light 2 off its 12-month long streak.
