Apple Arcade coming this Fall

March 27, 2019

Hot on the tail of Google's press release for their streaming service Stadia, Apple has just announced that their new Gaming platform, Apple Arcade will be live and ready for action this very Fall! 

 

So, what is Apple Arcade? 

This will be a new addition to the Apple store, bringing a library of games to all Apple devices. iPhone, iPad, Macbook and Apple TV users will now have access to a whole host of immersive, full scale, quality games, nothing like the iOS games we've seen before. Apple claims to be launching with over 100 exclusive titles that they will be offering for unlimited use on a fixed subscription based plan. 

Apple Arcade will be:

  • One price, unlimited play. 
  • No Ads or in-app purchases
  • Seamlessly playable from Mobile to Desktop, to TV
  • Playable offline
  • Shareable between up to 6 family members/users. 

Okay, so we'll be playing Apple exclusive games on our mobile devices and laptops, but what will those games actually look like? We do know they are teamed up with some pretty legendary developers already; including the creator of Final Fantasy, Hironobu Sakaguchi, as well as the studios of Disney, Platinum Games, and Sumo Digital to name a few..

One upcoming title that has our attention in particular..

It's called The Pathless; which is a visually stunning action title set in a dreamlike landscape, where you play a skilled hunter who with the help of her trusty eagle hunts down ferocious beasts and attempts to dispel a curse which grips a vast forested land. Previously playable on PS4, Annapurna Interactive and Giant Squid are bringing this unique game to Apple Arcade and we can't wait to see it!
