Earlier this year, Netflix officially announced it would enter the video game business. While it probably won’t allow you to play titles like Google Stadia, Playstation Now, or GeForce Now, the streaming giant will somehow offer gaming experiences.
An example is Eden was unearthed, a new virtual reality game based on the original anime of Eden which can be transmitted through the service.
Netflix launches a virtual reality game inspired by the Eden series
Eden Unearthed offers more than anything an interactive experience based on virtual reality that allows the user to ride a motorcycle in a landscape inspired by anime, but without the possibility of interacting with the cast of characters.
The virtual reality experience offers the chance to cross part of the story by stimulating people’s interest and participation, which encourages users to watch the Eden series.
In accordance with The Streamable, Eden Unearthed is a game for Oculus Quest and should be compatible with both generations of Oculus headphones.
The VR game can be downloaded for free from the Oculus App Lab and has no ads.
Netflix has already launched two mobile games based on the Stranger Things series and, with virtual reality, the platform aims to attract more subscribers.
