Netflix Just Launched its Gaming Service with 2 ‘Stranger Things’ Games


After months of rumours, Netflix launched its highly anticipated voyage into gaming. At this stage, Netflix Gaming will only be available on Android devices worldwide, as iOS users wait for an update in the coming months. The initial offering is understandably light, with the new service debuting five games, including Stranger Things: 1984 and Stranger Things 3, as well as the sports games, Shooting Hoops and Teeter Up. The card game Card Blast is the fifth title.

In a company blog post, Netflix’s Mike Verdu said, “We want to begin to build a library of games that offers something for everyone. We’re in the early days of creating a great gaming experience, and we’re excited to take you on this journey with us.”

It’s been confirmed that Netflix Gaming will come standard with any Netflix Subscription, meaning it doesn’t cost anything extra. Also, there are no ads or in-app purchases. Inside a specific section of the app, Android phone and tablet users will locate the library of games to download and play their favourites.

While some games may require an internet connection, others will be available to play offline, making those long trips and areas with lousy Wi-Fi zones a lot more tolerable. Additionally, members will be able to play games on multiple mobile devices on the same account up to your device limit. According to Netflix, the five games are available in “many” languages and will automatically default to the preference you set in your profile.
