Netflix is getting three more mobile games, including its first FPS

Netflix has announced three more mobile games that you’ll soon be able to play on iOS or Android with a subscription to the streaming service, including the first FPS that’s available as part of its lineup.

This Is A True Story is an educational role-playing game created to “share a true story of a Sub-Saharan African woman’s daily struggle to get water for her family,” according to Netflix. The game was made by developer Frosty Pop in collaboration with Charity: Water. Shatter Remastered is an updated take of the hit brick-breaking game that first released on PS3 in 2009. And in Into The Dead 2: Unleashed, a hybrid FPS / runner game, you’ll have to survive waves of zombies.

This Is A True Story and Shatter Remastered will be available on Tuesday, while Netflix says Into The Dead 2: Unleashed is “coming soon.”

Netflix has slowly been building out its lineup of mobile games since the program’s official launch in November, including the racing title Asphalt Xtreme and League of Legends spinoff. And the mobile games are only one part of Netflix’s growing interest in games — the company has acquired Next Games and Oxenfree developer Night Schoolreleased a trivia show, and is launching a daily trivia series based on the popular Trivia Crack brand.

Update 25.3.:

Netflix has added another game developer to its ranks. The company announced that it has acquired Boss Fight Entertainment, a mobile studio based in Texas. It’s the third game studio that Netflix has scooped up following Oxenfree developer Night School and Next Games, the team behind a Stranger Things puzzle game. Past games from Boss Fight include a mobile strategy game called Dungeon Boss; the studio was founded following the closure of Zynga’s Dallas studio, which developed the Facebook game CastleVille.

The news comes as Netflix is making a major push into the gaming space. In addition to acquiring established studios, Netflix has also made mobile games a part of its subscription package — just this week saw the announcement of three new games on the platform — while also experimenting with interactive series, including an upcoming daily trivia game called Trivia Quest.

With regards to Boss Fight, Netflix’s VP of game studios, Amir Rahimi, said in a statement that “this studio’s extensive experience building hit games across genres will help accelerate our ability to provide Netflix members with great games wherever they want to play them.”
