Netflix Announces Plans to Add 40 Free Games for Subscribers
Netflix has announced that it will release 40 free games to its subscribers this year as part of its commitment to gaming. The streaming service will add to the 55 games already released since the gaming service launched in November 2021.
According to a statement from the streaming service, the company has 70 in development with its external partners. In addition, Netflix has 16 games currently in development by its in-house game studios. The streaming service will release 40 more games for its subscribers for the remaining part of 2023. Subscribers will enjoy new games at least every month.
Although the company has not revealed the full list of games, it has teased some exciting new additions. These include a game based on the popular dating show, Too Hot to Handle. The company has also revealed that Mighty Quest: Rogue Palace, a Netflix-exclusive spin-off from Ubisoft's Mighty Quest For Epic Loot, will be released on April 18. The game is the second of three in a larger partnership with Ubisoft. The first Ubisoft game, Valiant Hearts: Coming Home, debuted on Netflix in January. In addition, Netflix announced that Vainglory developer Super Evil Megacorp is working on an exclusive game. The game is based on an unannounced upcoming Netflix IP.
One of the most significant announcements from Netflix is that Monument Valley and its sequel will join the company's gaming collection in 2024. These games are among the most revered mobile titles of all time and were huge hits when released. Netflix subscribers will be able to access them alongside their other games.
The gaming service has not been a huge success, with only 1% of users engaging with the content. However, Netflix claims that the number is growing steadily. Further, the company reaffirmed its commitment to developing a portfolio of games that appeals to its millions of members.
