Her story Creator Sam Barlow’s next game with developer Half Mermaid will launch on Tuesday on Windows PC, via Steam and GOG, and Xbox Series X, where it also launches on Xbox Game Pass. It’s one of the best games of the year – and it’s finally going to be available for free to Netflix subscribers, too.
In one announced on its official Twitter accountHalf Mermaid tells fans that Immortal will be available to Netflix subscribers “very soon”. The studio continued: “We’re spending extra time on our mobile release to ensure it’s the best possible experience for Netflix members around the world.”
Immortal was made up of three films that featured a fictional film actress named Marissa Marcel – three films that, according to the game’s fantasy, were never released to the public. Players must go through available footage, including movies and behind-the-scenes clips, to find out what happened to Marcel.
Netflix has 221 million subscribers and chances are you are one of them. One of the big problems of signing up with its game service is that people don’t know that they can access the games on it. It’s not difficult, but it’s not exactly intuitive either. If you don’t know about it, you are not alone. Early August, an Apptopia report only recommends 1% Netflix subscribers played the game using their subscription – and that’s a shame, given how many good games are out there.
Immortal, like other games available through Netflix, will be playable on iOS and Android devices. If you can’t figure out how to download and play it when it’s released, we can help. For Game Pass subscribers, Immortal available via the cloud, Windows PC, and on Xbox Series X at no additional cost.
UPDATE: An earlier version of this article said Immortal will be available to Netflix subscribers on the same day as the launch date on PC and Xbox storefronts. Since then, the developer has announced that the Netflix launch is delayed.
