Netflix Dropping Five New Video Games Globally, But Only Android Users Can Play
Android users, starting today, you’ve got some major bragging rights against all Apple fans. Netflix has released its first slate of mobile video games to all subscribers worldwide, but they’re only available to play on Android devices. Sorry, iPhone users — you’ll have to wait your turn.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mike Verdu, Netflix’s VP of game development, announced the slate of games today. The round-up of new games includes two Stranger Things titles — Stranger Things: 1984 And Stranger Things 3 – The Game — that were already launched in Poland in August. Along with those two, there’s a trio of brand new content available to subscribers, including Shooting hoops. Card Blast, Teeter Up.
If you’re looking to play any of the games, you’ll need to log into your Netflix account on a mobile device. You should see a row dedicated to games — there, you can select which you’d like to download and play. Games will automatically switch to the language set by the user on their Netflix account.
These mobile devices are available Only through the Netflix app, meaning you won’t have to download an extra “Netflix Games” application in order to play. Mobile games are only available to adult Netflix accounts. Kids accounts won’t have access to the games, but parents and guardians can set up a PIN number for children to access games (and all other adult content) on Netflix.
“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,” Verdu said in a post announcing the games. “We’re in the early days of creating a great gaming experience, and we’re excited to take you on this journey with us.”
