Netflix got bigger and more exciting. The most loved streaming platform is the talk of the town amongst gaming heads ever since it ventured into the gaming space. Boss Fight Entertainment, its third game studio acquisition in the last six months.

Some of our loved titles like Walking Dead and Stranger Things have already been released as free-to-play mobile games last year. The streaming giant is ‘upping its game’ as it continues to work on the selection of mobile games. Last week, two new games – “Shatter Remastered” and “This Is A True Story” were released for iOS and Android users. Netflix also teased its first upcoming first-person shooter title called “Into the Dead 2: Unleashed,” a zombie-apocalypse shoot-’em-up game.

But there’s no stopping for Netflix here. It continues to expand in full throttle by constantly working on gamifying its most loved movies. The company bought a studio called Night School in September, and this month it bought Next Games. Netflix did not disclose how much it will pay for Boss Fight. 

The good news is – These world-class games come with no ads and no in-app purchases—to members around the world! Since launching games worldwide in November, Netflix has rolled out 14 titles, available for no additional charge in its mobile apps. From casual puzzle and card games to arcade-style titles, Netflix subscribers can download games directly from the Netflix Android and iOS app from a dedicated games section.

Too long? Here’s a one-liner: Your Netflix subscription covers it all, be it movies, web series and now, even games!
