NETFLIX VIDEO GAMES: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!
Did you know that on Netflix you can already enjoy video games? It will seem strange to you, but they were plans that the platform was already saying. Well, now you can enjoy these games on your mobile, specifically 5 games! In today’s article we are going to explain the Netflix video games and their plan!
Netflix games, a reality
The five games are part of the standard Netflix subscription and, as the American company has pointed out, they don’t have additional charges or purchases within the application. Although they can be played through different devices and personal accounts of the same subscription, the games are only available from adult profiles.
This new content is available from the same app on the platform (at the moment only on Android) and, from the outset, it allows you to enjoy five titles, two of them based on the Stranger Things series!
In the statement, Verdu doesn’t mention at any time the arrival of the games to iOS, although specialized media such as Netflix Geeked maintain that “they are on the way.”
The Netflix Games
On the day of its launch, Netflix Games kicks off with five titles. These are five games designed for mobile devices, both in their visual component, as well as in their playable design and in control via the touch screen:
- Stranger Things: 1984
- Stranger Things 3: The Game
- Shooting Hoops
- Card blast
- Teeter (Up)
How to Play Netflix Games
As we said, at the moment Netflix games are only accessible through the Netflix Android application for mobile phones or tablets. Once inside the application, the user must look for a new row dedicated to video games and select the button to download.
Some of the games require a permanent internet connection, while others don’t. Also, games cannot be accessed from a children’s Netflix account.
With the arrival of video games on Netflix, the service with 213 million users continues to expand its offer to offer content that achieves user retention.
What is Netflix’s future plan with games?
As we discussed, this is just the beginning of a larger plan: Netflix’s great idea is to create its game catalog that adds extra value to its subscribers and has started the process of buying development studios to produce exclusive titles for their platform and which address all player profiles. For now, they have already acquired Night School Studio, the creators of Oxenfree and Afterparty.
Winter is the perfect season to start pulling out your blankets and staying at home, and Netflix’s new plan is seamless: in addition to premiering Cowboy Beebop’s Live-Action and the second season of Masters of the Universe: Revelation, fans of the video games have an appointment with Arcane and, already internationally, five games to enjoy and squeeze until all of the above is released.
