Players will soon get the chance to explore the Upside Down in a title from Telltale Games.
Netflix is teaming up with the publisher to create an interactive video game based on Stranger Things. Similar to Telltale's adaptation of Game of Thrones, the Stranger Things game will take place in the same world as the popular TV series and serve as a companion to the popular sci-fi series.
While specifics are still being kept under wraps, it was originally in development to be released alongside Season 2 before being delayed ahead of the October 2017 premiere. As with Telltale's popular Game of Thrones title, there is the chance characters from the Netflix series voiced by their original actors may appear in the game.
Another part of Netflix's deal with Telltale is bringing Minecraft: Story Mode to the streaming service. Viewers will be able to interact with the Minecraft spinoff as an interactive choose-your-own-adventure fantasy title in five parts through the streaming platform.
While Netflix has a hand in the development of the Stranger Things title, the adaptation is expected to be a traditional gaming experience available on PC and home consoles instead of directly through the streaming service.
There are no announced release dates for either the Stranger Things video game or Minecraft: Story Mode, although the Minecraft spinoff is expected to arrive on Netflix later this year.
