After the huge success (frustration) that was 'Black Mirror: Bandersnatch' Netflix have fully invested in bringing more titles with interactive features to their streaming platform.
And the next Netflix title to offer an interactive feature is going to be launched on April 10th.
'You vs. Wild' will see you control how well the globe-trotting adventurer Bear Grylls does while he is out in the wild. That's right, you are in control of Bear's life essentially. Will you help him survive, or will you hinder his chances, and see him plunge off the side of a mountain to his death?
Here's the teaser trailer for the new series, which also has an interactive feature.

Netflix have released the brief plot synopsis for the interactive show.
You've seen Bear Grylls battle the wild, but this time, his survival is in YOUR hands. Will you answer the call? You decide.
Late last December you'll remember that all anyone could talk about was 'Bandersnatch'. As well as being the first 'Black Mirror' movie, it was the streaming giant's first ever foray into the interactive. The 'Bandersnatch' obsession seemed to get slightly out of hand upon its release - it spawned memes, outcrys, and even online abuse towards one of its stars. Let's hope that this new interactive series fairs slightly better.
'You vs. Wild' will arrive on Netflix April 10th, and will feature eight interactive episodes.
