Apple Arcade Games Subscription Service Launches This September

Share

Apple has remained mostly silent on Apple Arcade since the subscription service was revealed earlier this year, but at today's iPhone reveal event, new details actually kicked off the show.

Apple also reaffirms the compromise of offering exclusive original content for Arcade customers.

Whether you're into films, TV shows, documentaries or gaming, Apple is certainly pulling out all the stops to tempt people in a market that's spoilt for choice. During the Apple Arcade presentation, the company promised over 150 games on the service at launch. Apple Arcade offers 100-plus new and exclusive games, made by celebrated creators like Hironobu Sakaguchi, Ken Wong, and Will Wright. Apple Arcade games will be great for families, respect user privacy and will not have ads or require any additional purchases.

Apple TV+, Arcade gaming to cost just $4.99 a month.

If you've been waiting for an Apple Arcade sub to get your game on, you'll have just 9 days to go. The subscription will automatically renew at INR 99 per month at the end of the seven-day free trial. For a monthly fee, players can have access to a library of games that they can play across their Apple devices. Plus, it looks like most of the "exclusive" titles are only timed-exclusives rather than permanently, as numerous games we've seen planned to hit the service so far have also previously been teased for other platforms, too.

Even though Apple has launched ahead of the Alphabet-owned company, it might not be enough to give an edge. Players use insects, mushrooms and plants to run through the world as quickly as possible or try over and over again to achieve the ideal score. Apple wants you to be able to play games online and offline where the speed of your internet connection is not a determinant so graphic heavy games would take up too much space.

Apple Arcade is an interesting gamble for the iPhone maker, as it has traditionally taken a laissez-faire approach to gaming.
