Streaming service giant Netflix announced Tuesday that it is taking first steps in launching games on mobile to the world.
Starting today, members everywhere can play five mobile games: Stranger Things: 1984 (BonusXP), Stranger Things 3: The Game (BonusXP), Shooting Hoops (Frosty Pop), Card Blast (Amuzo & Rogue Games), and Teeter Up (Frosty Pop).
“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,” said Mike Verdu, Netflix VP, Game Development.
“We’re in the early days of creating a great gaming experience, and we’re excited to take you on this journey with us.”
We want to share all the details so you can start playing right away:
Level 1: Your Netflix Membership Is Your All-Access Pass
All you need is a Netflix subscription — there’s no ads, no additional fees and no in-app purchases. (Don’t let the demogorgon tell you otherwise).
Level 2: Available on Android Everywhere
Our mobile games are currently available on Android devices when you log into your Netflix profile:
- Members on an Android mobile phone will see a dedicated games row and games tab where you can select any game to download.
- Members on an Android tablet will see a dedicated games row or be able to select games from the categories drop down menu to download and play.
Level 3: Players Around the World Welcome
Our mobile games are available in many of the languages we offer on service, so your games will automatically default to the preference set in your Netflix profile. If your language is not yet available, games will default to English.
Level 4: And Yes, That Means Every Profile on Your Account
Members will be able to play games on multiple mobile devices on the same account. If you hit your device limit— we’ll let you know and, if needed, you can sign out of devices not in use or deactivate them remotely on Netflix.com to free up a slot.
Level 5: Adults Only
We know how important child safety is to the parents, caregivers and guardians on our service. So these games are not available on kids profiles. If you’ve set up a PIN to prevent kids from having access to adult profiles, that same PIN will be required in order to log in to Netflix and play the game on a device.
Level 6: No Connection? No Problem!
While some mobile games may require an internet connection, others will be available to play offline, to make those long trips and areas with bad Wi-Fi a lot more tolerable.
Level 7: We’re Catering to Every Kind of Player
Just like our series, films and specials, we want to design games for any level of play and every kind of player, whether you’re a beginner or a lifelong gamer.
And we’re just getting started. We’re excited to continue improving our mobile gaming experience and adding to our entertainment offering in the months ahead
