Netflix March 22 announced the availability of three more mobile video games, including the streamer’s inaugural first-person shooter title. The SVOD pioneer has quietly upped its gaming profile in an effort to attract new subscribers in the U.S. — it’s most-saturated market.
Netflix, which last November launched its first mobile games, including Stranger Things: 1984, Stranger Things 3: The Game, Shooting Hoops, Card Blast and Teeter Up, recently acquired Finland-based publisher Next Games, which accounts for several games based on “The Walking Dead” zombie series.
Netflix’s new games include sequel Into the Dead 2: Unleashed, which puts the gun in the player’s hand to combat zombies; This Is a True Story, a puzzle about an African woman’s challenge to find water for her family; and Shatter Remastered, a reboot of Shatter, the 2009 title released on the Sony PlayStation 3 platform.
The titles can be download directly from the Netflix mobile app or directly from the Apple or Google app store. Android mobile users will see a dedicated games row and a games tab where they can select any game to download. Apple iOS mobile users will see a dedicated games row where you can select any game to download.
Tablet users will see a dedicated games link, or they can select games from the categories drop down menu to download and play.
