Netflix Gaming launches in Poland with 2 Stranger Things mobile games

Netflix entering the Gaming Industry with something promising

Netflix has recently begun testing its new service Netflix Gaming. The service was launched in Poland for android devices and will be added alongside users’ existing Netflix subscription. It currently has only two games, mainly for testing purposes. It is expected that Netflix is looking to heavily expand upon this feature and thus more updates are expected as Netflix steps into the gaming industry.

Netflix Gaming: Start of a new era

Nowadays, Netflix is known to almost every household in the world. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that the subscription-based streaming service has caused something of a revolution in the entertainment industry. Indeed, streaming platforms such as Netflix and Amazon Prime have become highly popular, especially in recent times where people have been forced into their homes thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.

Gaming-based subscription services aren’t exactly a new thing, however. Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass is also a gaming-based subscription service available for Xbox and PC. The service allows users to pay either a monthly or yearly based subscription fee, which grants them access to a plethora of games available.

Some games are added to the service on day one of their release itself, which gives further incentive for users to purchase a subscription. In countries such as India, where games cost a premium such a service has been a good value for money option for gamers, especially with Microsoft’s latest tie-up with EA plays which also gives players access to EA play titles.

What does the Netflix Gaming service contain

For now, Netflix has launched what is basically a test run of the service in Poland containing only two games which are Stranger Things: 1984 and Stranger Things 3: The Game. Both games are based on the highly popular Stranger Things TV series. As of now, support for the service is available only on android devices but Netflix has not ruled out plans to port it to iOS as well. Users subscribed to Netflix will be able to use the service at no additional cost. The games available via the subscription are also said to be free of advertisements and in-game purchases, a major flaw in most free or freemium mobile games.

Netflix has also said they plan to bring their service to consoles and even desktop computers. There have been murmurs of a Netflix-based gaming service in the past and the launch in Poland surely bodes well for the future of mobile gaming, which has made great strides in recent years.
