There has been already an array of thrilling announcements for the global gaming community by the two Fortune 500 companies. Let’s unravel the new place for adrenaline overdoses.
Netflix Games Target: Doubling the Fun
Popular online streaming portal Netflix introduced its games section only ten months ago. In spite of being a new entrant to the cluttered global gaming industry, Netflix Games managed to gain a considerable amount of fan following thanks to its engrossing range of 28 games. The Los Gatos-based company is now eyeing for a jaw-dropping target of 50 games by the end of 2022 riding on the Netflix Games Ubisoft sailboat.
Netflix Head of External Game Development Leanne Loombe shed light on the long-term vision of Netflix Games – “Our ultimate strategy is really about making sure there is a game on Netflix for all of our members. We have a lot of members, a diverse group of audiences, and so we want to make sure that we have the diversity in the variety of games to really serve all of those members.”
Ubisoft’s annual digital event Ubisoft Forward witnessed the startling announcement of three exclusive games that will be available on the iconic streaming platform as a result of the new Netflix Games Ubisoft partnership.
Firstly, we will see the arrival of Ubisoft’s multi-award-winning game Valiant Hearts: The Great War’s sequel. In all likelihood, this is going to be named ‘Valiant Hearts 2’ and will feature a whole-new story. It has been further revealed that there will be a new edition of the critically-acclaimed The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot mobile game, with a renewed hack-and-slash combat feature. The last but not the least happens to be the smash-hit Assassin’s Creed, which will arrive with an all-new mobile game.
How Can I Play the New Netflix Games?
All the three new Netflix games will come directly to the leading OTT’s app as well as the website. Subscribers can play those games right away on the app or on the website.
New Netflix Games: Price and Availability
It has been reported that the three new games resulted by the much-significant Netflix Games Ubisoft partnership, will be Netflix-exclusive. Hence, they could be only played on either the Netflix app or the Netflix website.
