Netflix officially launches i games in its catalog that from today Tuesday 28 September are officially available in Italy: there are 5 the first video games in the app Android. This is an important step by the Californian company, which aims to increasingly integrate gaming into its offer. But let’s see in detail what it is and what are the first territories where the update will arrive. Among these is Italy.
Starting today, Netflix subscribers can access the first video games on Android mobile devices. These are five titles published by the streaming giant, namely Stranger Things: 1984, Stranger Things 3: The game, Card Blast; Teeter Up and Shooting Hoops.
In the Netflix app, within our profile, we will then find one new line dedicated to games and a dedicated tab where you can select the game you want to download. Once done, this will also appear in the home, as well as within the app.
There is no talk of streaming, but of games downloaded directly to mobile devices, at least for the moment, but Netflix has confirmed that the games included in the subscription will be free and will not have any form of additional monetization.
“We are only at the beginning and we still have a lot of work to do – said a spokesperson for the company – but we are very happy to offer these games exclusively as part of the Netflix subscription, without advertising or in-app purchases”
a path in evolution, which will become an extension of the basic entertainment offer made up of films and TV series we are used to by now. On the other hand, Netflix has already experimented with interactive shows like Bandersnatch or games based on some of its most popular IPs, so it’s not too surprising that this is the path taken.
The update rollout has started at 5pm today, Tuesday 28 September 2021, and involved three countries: Poland, Spain and Italy, in fact, it will then extend to all the territories in which Netflix is available, bringing more and more games.
