Netflix video games soon to be available on smartphones

Starting on Thursday, Netflix video games will be available for Android users worldwide. Here is all we know about it!

Looking forward to breaking into the game subscription market, the streaming company will launch its first video games next Thursday. Here is all you need to know about Netflix video games.

The company will introduce updates to its app on Android smartphones and will let users check which games are ready to download. In this stage, only five Netflix games will be included for Netflix subscribers. However, the company has promised a bigger Netflix video games list for the early future.

Unfortunately, iOS users will have to wait a bit longer till they can download Netflix video games. Netflix said that its video games would be available on iOS devices “in the coming months”.

Netflix video games, contrary to other mobile games, won’t have adverts in the game nor in-app purchases. Those are great news, right?

Two of the five video games that will be launched with the service are linked to the popular Stranger Things series. Here is the complete list of Netflix games:

Stranger Things: 1984
Stranger Things 3: The Game

Card Blast
Teeter Up
Shooting Hoops

Although the initial Netflix video games are said to have a straightforward design with simple graphics and also casual gameplay, the company plans to eventually move to another phase to create games “for all kinds of players”.

“While this is just the beginning of a long journey, we’re excited to provide a gaming experience that is differentiated from what is available today – exclusive mobile games with no ads, no in-app payments, included with your Netflix membership”

-Netflix announced

Mike Verdu, Netflix’s head of game development, wrote: “Whether you’re craving a casual game you can start from scratch, or an immersive experience that lets you dig deeper into your favourite stories, we want to begin to build a library of games that offers something for everyone”

Verdu has worked at EA games -a giant in the industry of gaming- and later at Facebook, on augmented and virtual reality projects.
