Netflix’s new mobile gaming service coming to iOS tomorrow • Eurogamer.net

League of Legends’ Hextech Mayhem on the way.

Following its official Android launch last week, Netflix’s new video game service is now rolling out to iOS and is due to appear in the app from tomorrow, November 10th.

Netflix announced its intention to expand to games back in July, explaining that it would initially focus its efforts on titles for mobile devices.

Two such games – Stranger Things: 1984 and Stranger Things 3 – were added to its entertainment library in August as part of an early Poland-exclusive test, and three more – Shooting Hoops, Teeter (Up) and Card Blast – were introduced when Netflix expanded its testing in September. The same five titles were the headline of last week’s global rollout on Android and will, not surprisingly, also form the basis of the service’s launch on iOS.

However, Netflix has unveiled a new addition on the horizon in the form of Hextech Mayhem, a new League-of-Legends-themed rhythm runner from the Bit.Trip studio Choice Provisions. Only Netflix say it’s coming to its service “soon”, so it’s unclear if it will launch with the PC and switch versions next Tuesday, November 16th.

As is the case with Netflix’s gaming offerings on Android, every single title must be downloaded outside the app before it can be played – in the case of iOS via the App Store. As it happens, all five launch titles – Stranger Things: 1984, Stranger Things 3, Shooting Hoops, Teeter (Up) and Card Blast – are available for download now, but will not appear in Netflix’s iOS app until an update tomorrow .

“Like our series, movies and specials,” the streaming service explained of its future plans during last week’s Android launch, “we want to design games for every game level and every kind of player, whether you’re a beginner or a lifelong gamer. And we’re equal We are excited to continue to improve our mobile gaming experience and add to our entertainment offering in the coming months. “

These additions will likely include the first fruits of its partnership with newly acquired Oxenfree developer Night School Studio.
