Netflix has announced it will start rolling out its gaming service globally from today
After months of the first unexpected, yet highly-intriguing announcement, Netflix is officially rolling out the gaming service for Android users from today and will give subscribers something to enjoy out of the selection of games already available on offer.
Netflix Games was first announced back in July when it was still in the “early stages” and also stated it would be focusing its games on mobile devices. It then became more established in August when it announced its first video games, Stranger Things: 1984 and Stranger Things 3, for exclusive testing in Poland only.
The video streaming company then added three more games to test on a wider scale, Shooting Hoops, Teeter (Up), and Card Blast, in September, and it is these five games that are now available to play on a global scale.
Netflix Games is currently on Android only and is available to current subscribers at no extra cost. Netflix has also stated all the games will be free of ads, additional costs, and in-app purchases.
All titles can be found under the Games tab in Netflix’s mobile app for Android, but must first be downloaded via the Google Play Store.
iOS users can expect the Games tab soon, and Netflix promises more games are on the way. The company has already acquired its first developer, Night School Studio, so we can certainly expect a lot of great games along the way.
What kind of games do you want to see being published by Netflix? Would you want the streaming service to offer a multiverse of its shows in mobile games format, or try something completely different? Let us know in the comment section!
