Apple Arcade Game Subscription Service Officially Starts Next Week (VIDEO)
Having recently teased a special event, tech and media company Apple has now unveiled more information regarding their previously-announced game subscription service called Apple Arcade. While the platform previously received details such as game selection and wide availability across Apple devices, the subscription service has now confirmed pricing as well as a long-awaited release date.
Announced during the touted ‘Apple Special Event,’ the company confirmed Apple Arcade will officially go live on September 19th, with official pricing placed at $4.99 USD. This cost grants up to six family members access a monthly-updated collection of over 100 games across Apple’s myriad of iOS 13-compatible devices (Apple TV, iPad, iPhone, Mac). Launching alongside this pricing plan is a limited free-trial, letting curious players try out Apple Arcade over a one-month period.
As depicted in the video above, three games were shown off as part of the proceedings: Konami’s child-friendly spin-off Frogger in Toy Town, Capcom’s underwater explorer Shinsekai: Into the Depths, and Annapurna Interactive’s rhythm-based racer Sayonara Wild Hearts. This trio joins a number of titles from a pretty impressive collection of developers, including the likes of Revolution Software sequel Beyond a Steel Sky, Overland from Finji, Klei Entertainment’s Hot Lava, and SEGA‘s Sonic Racing.
Apple Arcade launches for Mac and iOS devices on September 19th.
