Games enjoy great popularity in the App Store. According to Apple, over 300,000 free titles are available here for free download. All too often, however, these games are clouded by advertising or the fact that you can't get anywhere without buying items with real money (pay-to-win). With Apple Arcade this problem should come to an end.
This is a game subscription service comparable to EA Access. The service offers you 100 exclusive games to start with. You can download, try out and gamble on these games as you like, without having to accept ads or make in-app purchases.
On September 19, Google officially released the service for iPhone and iPod Touch. To announce the new iPhone 11 devices, Apple has also announced that the service on iPad and Apple TV will start a little later, on September 30, 2019. Mac owners, on the other hand, will have to wait until October 2019.
In the USA Apple Arcade costs 4.99 US Dollar per month, in Germany Apple charges 4.99 Euro per month. If you're not sure whether you like the service or not, you can try Apple Arcade for 30 days for free. For this price you can access the service with different devices.
Thanks to a family subscription, the subscription service can be used on several devices at the same time. Up to six people can play with just one account.
Apple Arcade aims to have about 100 different games. This catalog will be rotating, adding new titles and removing others to keep the freshness of your selection. All of them are unique games not found on other platforms.
At the keynote speech in September, Apple highlighted three titles for Apple Arcade: a new offshoot of the classic Frogger, an underwater game called Shinsekai: Into the Depths and an action game called Sayonara Wild Hearts. All games on Apple Arcade are also exclusive titles that you won't find on any other platform. Other exclusive games are The Enchanted World, Patterned, Overland and Card of Darkness.
According to Apple, they collaborate with indie developers as well as renowned game designers. Apple names Will Wright (Sim City, The Sims) and Hironobu Sakaguchi (Final Fantasy). Titles by well-known publishers such as Sega and Konami are also on offer. Which games have been confirmed for Apple Arcade so far.
Of course the games are only available as long as you have an active Apple Arcade subscription. Google also gives details about the future of Apple Arcade. The games catalogue of the service will be updated with new software every month.

With an Apple Arcade subscription you can play the games included in the service on all compatible platforms.

This means you can play your games without an active Internet connection.
Apple also confirmed that you can pair your PS4 and Xbox One controller with your Apple TV and use it for selected Apple arcade games.
Apple is thus expanding its catalogue of services and providing Apple Arcade in addition to the music streaming service Apple Music, the digital magazine flat rate Apple News+ and Apple TV+.
