Netflix has announced five new titles are coming to its platform over the summer. The new titles include OXENFREE II: Lost Signals (July 12), The Queen’s Gambit Chess (July 25), Cut the Rope Daily (August 1), LEGO Legacy: Heroes Unboxed (Coming soon), and Paper Trail (Coming soon).
The company has been offering games on its platforms globally now since November 2021. With the streaming space becoming more competitive, the company decided to add games to its library to make its subscriptions more appealing to prospective and existing customers.
Since 2021, the company has released more than 60 games for people to play on mobile devices. From the new titles, The Queen’s Gambit Chess is one that ties into a Netflix original show called The Queen’s Gambit, which is credited with hugely increasing chess interest.
