Netflix Add Games To Streaming Service, Trialling Through A Poland-Only Test

We've known for some time that Netflix were planning an expansion into gaming. Having previously brought us interactive films like Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, last month saw them announce that former EA executive Mike Verdu would join them for this initiative, and it's begun sooner than expected.

Launching a test that's currently Poland-only, Netflix just added two mobile games to their service, Stranger Things: 1984 and Stranger Things 3. Currently, that's only available for Android and you'll need to download it first via Google Play, according to official images.
