At its annual Geeked Week event, Netflix announced a slew of new titles coming to its gaming service this year. A few of the new games are tied to some of Netflix’s most popular TV shows, including “The Queen’s Gambit,” “Shadow and Bone,” “La Casa De Papel” aka ‘Money Heist’ and “Too Hot To Handle.” The streaming service currently has 22 games available and plans to have 50 titles by the end of this year, some of which are already announced.

Netflix’s upcoming The Queen’s Gambit will be a chess game that will let players enter Beth Harmon’s world and take chess lessons, play matches, and compete against friends. The company says the game pays homage to its hit TV show. The game was developed by United Kingdom-based Ripstone and will launch sometime in 2022.
Destinies is a single-player role-playing game based on Netflix’s fantasy drama series. Users will be able to play as their favorite characters and travel through the world of the Grishaverse on a narrative adventure to fulfill their destinies.

The company’s upcoming Too Hot To Handle game is based on the streaming service’s popular reality series of the same name. The game will see players meet and mingle with others who are all vying for their affection. The title was developed by Croatia-based Nanobit and is expected to launch soon.
The streaming service is also going to add a new La Casa De Papel game based on the popular Spanish heist crime TV show.

How To Access Netflix’s Games?
To access games on Android, you need to tap on the new Games tab in the Netflix Android app, which lists the games. After choosing a name, users are redirected to the Google Play store to install the games just like any other app. Once the games are downloaded, they can be played at any time by tapping them on the Netflix app or on the home screen of an Android device. For iOS, Netflix uses a similar system where users are redirected to the Apple App Store to download. The games will also require users to authenticate with their Netflix membership information in order to start playing.
