NETFLIX has made more free mobile games available to its subscribers.
A total of three free-to-play titles were made available for download via the US streaming giant’s app on Tuesday.
A fourth, based on a popular tabletop game, will be released on the app next week.
Netflix has made video games a focus as it tries to make more money amid declining subscriber numbers.
The company announced last month that it was merging with tabletop game Exploding Kittens for a mobile game and animated series.
In a tweet on Tuesday, the company confirmed that the mobile version will launch on the Netflix app on May 31.
The animated series comes a little later, sometime in 2023.
The three games added to Netflix’s games catalog on Tuesday are: Dragon Up, Moonlighter and Townsmen – A Kingdom Rebuilt.
All three games are available for free to all Netflix subscribers, whether playing on Android or iOS.
To download the new games, go to the appropriate games tab or type “games” in the search bar.
You can then choose which game you want to download. Each game can be played via its own app.
It’s Netflix’s latest move, signaling its intention to go big on video games.
The company plans to enter the video game industry as it looks for new ways to attract paying subscribers.
Last May, The Information reported that Netflix was working on its own platform that could include a games bundle similar to Apple Arcade.
Apple Arcade gives paying subscribers access to a library of dozens of games that they can stream to their devices over the internet.
The move comes at a time when the gambling industry is booming.
It has benefited from a surge in demand from players staying at home during the Covid-19 pandemic.
