Ever wanted to be a drug kingpin? Well, now you can try out the lifestyle without a stint in jail.

Narcos: Cartel Wars is a mobile game based on the hit Netflix series "Narcos" that lets you step into role of cartel kingpin. The game was made by Gaumont Television, which produces "Narcos," and FTX Games, reported Variety, and will be released in September alongside the series' season two premiere.

"Narcos" follows the rise and fall of infamous drug kingpin Pablo Escobar and the various forces -- military, political and civilian -- vying for control over the cocaine market of the late '80s. All 10 new episodes of the show will be available exclusively on Netflix starting September 2.

Narcos: Cartel Wars lets users build their own drug-fueled crime syndicate, and it will feature characters and updates from the show. The game asks you to choose between "Plomo or Plata" (a common cartel warning as well as a line from "Narcos," meaning a bullet or a bribe).

Netflix, Gaumont Television and FTX Games did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
