Netflix Now Has Mobile Games On Its Platform In Poland

Back in July, we learned that Netflix was venturing into the realm of video game streaming. Now, it looks like the entertainment company has begun its journey towards that goal, with a test release of mobile games in Poland.

In a recent series of tweets, Netlfix outlined its first steps into the world of cloud gaming, as well as what we can expect from the company’s offerings. In addition, Netflix also revealed that its first two games would be “Stranger Things: 1984” and “Stranger Things 3”, both of which will be exclusively available in Poland:

“Let’s talk Netflix and gaming. Today members in Poland can try Netflix mobile gaming on Android with two games, Stranger Things: 1984 and Stranger Things 3. It’s very, very early days and we’ve got a lot of work to do in the months ahead, but this is the first step.

“Here’s what you can expect: – No ads – No in-app purchases – Games included with your Netflix membership We’ll keep you updated as we explore what gaming looks like on Netflix. Stay tuned.”

While you’d assume that Netflix would be offering a cloud gaming experience rather than a traditional one, its first promotional images say otherwise. In fact, the presence of a Google Play screenshot suggests that the video game segment of Netflix will use a traditional download infrastructure for now. Sure, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Still, it does indicate that, for the moment, Netflix is focusing on associating its name with gaming in general rather than the tech behind it.

Netflix hasn’t indicated whether or not its mobile games will eventually be available outside of Poland. However, if this initial test run goes well, it could well and truly kickstart the streaming services foray into video games.
