In August, Netflix began testing its gaming service in Poland as part of a wider rollout of the service. Originally, only players in Poland had access to Stranger Things 1984 and Stranger Things 3: The Game, but that has since changed. However, the service is now available to users all over the world, and three new games have been added to the platform: Shooting Hoops, Card Blast, and Teeter Up. The only prerequisites for playing these games are a Netflix subscription and an Android device. There is no additional fee to play the games, and there are no microtransactions in the games either.
It is explained in greater detail in Netflix’s press release how players can personalize their gaming time on the streaming service. The gaming service can be accessed from multiple devices using a single Netflix account; however, the total number of devices used cannot exceed the normal Netflix account limit. If players want to use the gaming service on more devices, Netflix recommends that they sign out of any unused devices or remove their Netflix account from the Netflix website.
The same language options are available for each game as are available for the normal streaming service. The gaming platform is not available on the kids’ platform, and if the Netflix account requires a PIN to access, the PIN must also be used to access the games that are made available on the kids’ platform as well. Netflix allows players to access titles while they are not connected to the internet, but this will almost certainly necessitate a complete download of the game onto the preferred device.
