Premium subscription service Apple Arcade is going online later this month

By Ian Boudreau 11 Sep 2019

Apple’s subscription service for iOS games, Apple Arcade, will go online later this month. Apple device users will be able to find the service in the App Store starting September 19. The service will cost $4.99 USD per month, with a one-month free trial available.

We first learned about Apple Arcade earlier this year, and it’s joining the likes of Google Stadia, Xbox Games Pass, and Ubisoft’s Uplay+ as a new way to pay for premium games. Apple Arcade will launch with access to 100 games, and Apple says more will follow shortly. Once you subscribe to Apple Arcade, you’ll be able to download and play the full catalogue, and they’ll work whether or not you’re online for as long as you remain subscribed.

Many of our initial questions and concerns about the Apple Arcade have yet to be specifically addressed by Apple, as it’s still unclear how this monetization model impacts developers, how Arcade exclusives are going to work, and what the basis is for the Arcade’s curation process. Is Apple making mobile games more accessible to more people, or creating another ‘walled garden’?

Time will tell on those fronts, but in the meantime, Apple has shared more of the exclusive games coming to Arcade:

  • Ballistic Baseball, Gameloft
  • ChuChu Rocket! Universe, Sega
  • Exit the Gungeon, Devolver
  • Overland, Finji
  • Pac-Man Party Royale, Bandai Namco
  • Projection: First Light, Blowfish (pictured above)
  • Rayman Mini, Ubisoft
  • Shantae and the Seven Sirens, WayForward
  • Skate City, Snowman
  • Sneaky Sasquatch, RAC7
  • Steven Universe: Unleash the Light, Cartoon Network
  • Super Impossible Road, Rogue Games
  • The Bradwell Conspiracy, Bossa
  • The Enchanted World, Noodlecake
  • Various Daylife, Square Enix

We’ll be watching closely to see how mobile developers react to Apple Arcade, and to report on any great strategy games the service winds up offering.
