Netflix Adds 2 More Games, New First-Person Shooter Game Coming Soon!
Netflix is growing its gaming collection once again with the release of two more titles, which went live on Tuesday. The new games are “Shatter Remastered” and “This Is A True Story.” The two new games are now available on iOS and Android. Netflix also revealed its first upcoming first-person shooter game which is called “Into the Dead 2: Unleashed.”
“Shatter Remastered,” is a retro-inspired brick-breaking title from New Zealand developer PikPok. The game is a revised version of Shatter, a game from New Zealand developer Sidhe that was initially released on the PlayStation 3 in 2009. The restored mobile-optimized version comes with the global leaderboards so users can track their high scores against other players from all over the world.
The second game in this addition is, “This Is A True Story,” which is a game that’s designed to raise understanding about the lack of safe drinking water in parts of the world. The game was developed by Frosty Pop in partnership with Charity: Water, a nonprofit organization that is working to give clean and safe drinking water to people in poor and developing countries. The game is about the true story of a sub-Saharan African woman’s daily battle to get water for her family. The game is based on actual interviews and experiences and lets players explore a hand-painted landscape while enduring a windstorm, poachers, befriending a goat, and a lot more.
And now about “Into the Dead 2: Unleashed,” Netflix hasn’t revealed when exactly the game will be available to play, but notes that it’s “coming soon.” Like “Shatter Remastered,” the game was developed by PikPok. The game is a sequel to the zombie action game “Into the Dead.” In the game, players must fight off zombie threats while traversing dangerous terrain. The game features numerous chapters, stages, and challenges where gamers can unlock weapons, firearms, explosives, and a lot more.
Like Netflix’s other games, users are directed to the new titles through the company’s apps on iOS and Android. On Android, users can find games in numerous places, including on a dedicated gaming tab in the app’s main navigation. On iOS, games are featured in a dedicated row. The games are hosted on the platforms’ respective app stores, not on Netflix’s infrastructure, but they can only be played by Netflix users. After installation, the games will ask users to certify with their Netflix account details to get started.
Netflix has been making its gaming service since last year when the company released the initial lineup that included a couple of “Stranger Things”-themed games and other casual games.
Netflix has already released several other titles, including “Arcanium: Rise of Akhan,” “Asphalt Xtreme,” “Bowling Ballers,” “Card Blast,” “Dominoes Café, “Dungeon Dwarves,” “Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story,” “Knittens,” “Krispee Street,” “Shooting Hoops,” “Teeter (Up)” and “Wonderputt Forever.”
