Apple’s game subscription service, Apple Arcade, was unveiled at a dedicated services event back in March. It was where the Cupertino giant first introduced the idea and at today’s iPhone launch event it has revealed the launch date and pricing details for the same.
So, here are the key details – Apple Arcade will launch on September 19 and you’ll just have to shell out $4.99 per month for a family subscription. Apple did not reveal details about solo plans, but we will look into it and update this story with information on other plans.
Apple Arcade will offer users a one-month free trial to promote the service, which is just awesome for those looking to check out the game collection. The Cupertino giant is giving users access to over 100 game titles across 150+ countries across the globe. You can play games across iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV.
Apple has partnered with big-time game developers, like Annapurna Interactive, Bossa Studios, Cartoon Network, Finji, Konami, LEGO, SEGA, Snowman, ustwo games, and a number of other game studios.
At the iPhone launch event, Apple took the time to show off some exclusive titles which would be available on Apple Arcade. This includes Konami’s latest take on the renowned Frogger game called Frogger in Toy Town and Capcom’s Shinsekai: Into the Depths. The company also showed off a rhythm game called Sayonara Wild Hearts from Annapurna Interactive.
Apple Arcade will go head-to-head with the Google Play Pass subscription service, which Mountain View teased earlier this week. Excited, right? So are we. Stay tuned for much more live coverage from the Apple iPhone event.
