ubisoft netflix video games

With more and more competition in the realm of streaming services, Netflix is hoping that expanding beyond movies and tv shows by offering video games that can be played on mobile devices via its app will keep it as a top player in the entertainment industry. To further that goal, Netflix has announced it is joining forces with video game developer Ubisoft to expand its gaming options. The two will be bringing a trio of Ubisoft games to app including a new Assassin's Creed title that will be exclusive to Netflix members.

 As part of Netflix's entry into gaming that began in late 2021, the new mobile games will be downloadable and available to members with no ads or microtransactions - and included with a Netflix subscription. The first game in the partnership will be a sequel to Valiant Hearts, the World War I-set puzzle-adventure. Directed by the team behind the first game, the new story will launch in January 2023.

Also coming in 2023 is a new Mighty Quest for Epic Loot, which will bring Netflix members a roguelite-inspired hack-and-slash adventure. The third game will be the Assassin's Creed exclusive for Netflix. Stay tuned for more info on that!

Additionally, Netflix is transforming some of Ubisoft's video game properties into tv programming as part of their multi-media partnership. The recent special "Rabbids Invasion: Mission to Mars" sends an unlikely team of heroes on a mission where nothing goes as planned. A live-action Assassin's Creed series also is being developed for Netflix to go along with the mobile game that is in the works. There are also three animated series to be on the lookout for with ties to Ubisoft, “Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Remix,” “Far Cry,” and "Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell."

Are you geeked about the Ubisoft video games and shows coming to Netflix? I am!
