Netflix expands its gaming offerings with 3 new titles

Netflix shared a list of new titles coming to its Netflix Games platform. The service will add three games, including the anticipated Desta: The Memories Between, which launches on September 27.

Desta: The Memories Between - Developer Overview Trailer

The announcement comes from GameSpot, which aired its first annual Swipe Mobile Showcase. The stream shared updates on a slew of mobile games and revealed some new titles too, like the upcoming Call of Duty mobile game. Netflix was a major part of the show, using it as a chance to expand its commitment to video games with new titles.

Of the new games, Desta: The Memories Between is a turn-based tactical rogue-like where players have to think their way through a metaphorical dodgeball game. After its showing at Summer Game Fest, we described it as “an emotional story about a girl returning home after her father dies and reconnecting with old friends with turn-based combat centered around throwing a ball.”

The title received tons of shine at the Swipe Mobile Showcase, focusing on its unique gameplay philosophy and touching story. It also received a release date of September 27, where it’ll launch exclusively on the Netflix Games platform. Nintendo Switch and Steam ports of the title are also coming soon.

Another Netflix game that got the highlighted treatment is Lucky Luna, a stylish platformer exclusive to Netflix Games. The 2D vertical platformer was given a surprise shadow drop and is currently available through Netflix Games.

The showcase also gave a glimpse at the upcoming mobile port of Immortality, which is coming to Netflix Games. Our review at Digital Trends called the game “an all-engrossing FMV horror game made with the highest level of cinematic craft seen in a video game.”

Those three titles join an all-star list of indies either coming to the platform or available on it now. The list includes the following games.

  • Spiritfarer 
  • Wild Things: Animal Adventures
  • Into the Breach
  • Before Your Eyes
  • Moonlighter
  • Into the Dead 2
  • Heads Up

Elden Ring players are already struggling to beat Shadow of the Erdtree
The hand-to-hand combat style in Shadow of the Erdtree.

Difficulty is a well-known hallmark of FromSoftware games, and so the fact people are experiencing issues in the new Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree DLC, even against even common enemies, is unsurprising. However, even veteran players appear to be struggling. Many have taken to Steam to negatively review the game, which is now sitting at "Mixed" at the time of this writing.

Some of these complaints also cite performance issues, including stuttering and dropped frame rate. Publisher Bandai Namco and FromSoftware haven't commented on any upcoming fixes.

Best PlayStation Plus Deals: Save on Essential, Plus and Premium
Best PS Plus deals

Sony's PlayStation 5 is one of the biggest consoles of the generation, and we're not just talking in terms of sales or game releases. Much like the PlayStation 4, it's taken a while for the PS5 to take its stride, but it finally has a great lineup of games that are worth checking out. Of course, one big downside to consoles like the PS5 is that, unlike a gaming PC where you can connect to multiplayer servers without an issue, you have to have a subscription service, in this case, called PlayStation Plus. It's not all bad, though, since there are some tiers that give you access to a large PS games library and a few other perks, so it's worth grabbing for more reasons than just access to online content.

Also, while you're here, be sure to check out these excellent PS5 game deals and PlayStation deals that include some great games and accessories you can get for a great price.
What is PlayStation Plus?
Along with online multiplayer and other in-game network features, a PlayStation Plus Essential membership grants you access to exclusive discounts and other promotions. Perhaps the most notable benefit of PlayStation Plus is that every month, Sony gives subscribers one PlayStation 5 and two PlayStation 4 games that are free to download. You have one month to add these free PlayStation Plus games to your library.
