Cartel Tycoon is on Xbox and PlayStation

Thought you’d proven yourself across the various simulators present in the gaming world? Think again, for Cartel Tycoon is now on Xbox and PlayStation. Can you handle the money, the power, the fame…?

Available right now as the latest survival business simulator on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, Cartel Tycoon will see you given the opportunity to command a ruthless empire, doing so as the head of a budding drug production gang. 

From Moon Moose and tinyBuild, Cartel Tycoon has been inspired by the narco trade of the 1980s and 1990s. Giving the opportunity for you to grow a humble farming operation into a massive logistical system, you’ll be tasked with working with plantations, labs, aerodromes, and more.

Ready to smuggle?

At its core, Cartel Tycoon will see you smuggling drugs and other resources, all while keeping law enforcement and public sentiment at bay. But of course, this is the narco trade and as such you’ll also need to defend the business from rival cartels, the DEA, CIA, and the army. You’ll do so through propaganda or violence. Your choice!

In Cartel Tycoon, you’ll fast discover that you have control over an empire that needs capital. Whether that be to grow, launder any earned cash, bribe corrupt politicians, or keep lieutenants in line, that cash is going to be king. Expect to be left making hard decisions with rippling impacts through a dynamic narrative system.

And you should also expect to keep going back, all thanks to Cartel Tycoon’s deep replayability, with a wide variety of characters to encounter, dozens of paths to take, and endless strategic combinations. It’s here where you’ll get to create the perfect experience with a variety of game modes. Story takes players through tens of hours of rich narrative gameplay, Sandbox encourages rampant creativity with highly customizable features, and then, for an extra devious challenge, you can put it all on the line in the Hardcore permadeath Survival mode.

When death inevitably comes knocking, Cartel Tycoon will then let you continue the legacy by choosing a proper successor from the lieutenants left behind, rebuilding your empire again. Do so, and even more power will be yours. 

Key features

  • Develop your humble farming operation into a massive logistical system comprising plantations, laboratories, aerodromes, and more.
  • Tycoon action on an epic scale with dozens of upgrade paths and endless strategic combinations.

  • Highly customizable Sandbox mode to play by your own rules!

“In the spirit of the tycoon genre, we’re expanding the reach of Cartel Tycoon onto PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S,“ said Leonid Gorbachov, Creative Director. “We’ve worked hard to make our sim feel just as thrilling on a gamepad as it is with a keyboard and mouse for the aspiring kingpins who play on consoles.”

Buy now!

Cartel Tycoon is on the Xbox Store, playable on Xbox Series X|S. There are two versions in fact, with the Standard Edition costing £24.99. That is complemented by the Cartel Tycoon Deluxe Edition for £39.24. What do you get for the extra cash? Well, how do four DLC packs sound to you?

Cartel Tycoon Description

Set in the fictionalized ’80s Latin America, Cartel Tycoon tells the story of a time when the cocaine took over first the US, and then the whole world. Ridiculously rich drug kingpins rule over glorious empires, creating thousands of jobs. But a maelstrom of violence threatens this criminal underworld from within.

Build an empire of drug production and smuggling chains while managing rogue lieutenants, state authorities, and public opinion.

Rival gangs, the DEA, army and even the CIA all threaten your growing business. When Capo dies, crown your successor, and build your empire from the ruins all over again.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
