Netflix Games begins rolling out for subscribers on Android
Netflix is something most would associate with TV or movies, not video games, unless it's The Witcher series or the Castlevania anime. But that's all changing, and just as it was rumored earlier this year, Netflix is beginning to offer games to its subscribers. The streaming giant has been toying with the idea of making and offering games, with the company's acquisition of Oxenfree developer Night School Studio, and the occasional release of games based on the Stranger Things franchise.
Now, Netflix users will be able to get in some gaming alongside their media streaming, with the global rollout of Netflix Games. This new service is included with any level of Netflix subscription, and offers five different games to start with: Stranger Things: 1984, Stranger Things 3, Shooting Hoops, Card Blast, and Teeter Up, each of which is currently only available on Android for now. Netflix says that some games may require an always-online connection, but others will be playable even when offline. If you're interested in trying any of these titles out, all you need to do is open Netflix on an Android device and swipe over to the new gaming tab to start playing.
