Netflix is beginning its dive into gaming with a test for users in Poland. Android users in Poland are able to try out two games, starting today.
The official Netflix Poland Twitter account offered a look at the new feature this morning, in a tweet that says “Let’s talk about Netflix games. Starting today, users in Poland can try out two Android mobile games: Stranger Things 1984 and Stranger Things 3. We are at an early stage and we still have a lot of work to do in the coming months, but this is our first step.”
Netflix first officially shared its plans to get into gaming in a Q2 letter to shareholders. “We’re also in the early stages of further expanding into games, building on our earlier efforts around interactivity (eg, Black Mirror Bandersnatch) and our Stranger Things games. We view gaming as another new content category for us, similar to our expansion into original films, animation and unscripted TV,” the letter said.
The company shared plans to include games in Netflix subscriptions at no additional cost, just like films and series. Netflix also said that it would focus on mobile games first, which we’re now seeing with the launch on Android inn Poland today.
