Netflix is more than simply a video stream service. It has formally announced its entry into gaming, bringing the company one step closer to competing with rivals such as Google. All Netflix customers may play the five mobile games that the firm first unveiled on their Android phones or tablets, while iOS users will have to wait a little longer, although no exact date is known.
“We’re in the early days of creating a great gaming experience, and we’re excited to take you on this journey with us,” said Mike Verdu, vice president of Game Development at Netflix, in a statement. “Whether you’re craving a casual game you can start from scratch or an immersive experience that lets you dig deeper into your favorite stories, we want to begin to build a library of games that offers something for everyone,” he added.
Stranger Things: 1984 (BonusXP), Stranger Things 3: The Game (BonusXP), Shooting Hoops (Frosty Pop), Card Blast (Amuzo & Rogue Games), and Teeter Up are the current Netflix Games titles (Frosty Pop). If you have an Android phone and use Netflix, you may download the Netflix app from the Google Play Store and begin playing these games without paying or subscribing to anything. Your Netflix account is adequate. The games will be accessible through a separate tab.
Netflix’s gaming aspirations were revealed earlier this month when it began testing Stranger Things-themed games in Poland. Later, the test was expanded to new areas, such as Spain and Italy, but with more titles – all of which are part of Netflix Games’ worldwide rollout. The first two games, Stranger Things: 1984 (BonusXP) and Stranger Things 3: The Game (BonusXP), are based on the very successful sci-fi show, but the others are not. That makes me wonder whether any of Netflix’s other shows’ plots or characters will be included in the next games.
