What is Apple Arcade

It may be the first time to hear about Apple Arcade service; Apple Arcade can be briefly described as a subscription system. Just like Xbox Game Pass, it will be possible to download and play all the games included in the service for a certain monthly payment.

What is Apple Arcade

Generally, there are no applications such as additional payments or advertisements in the service where mobile games will take place. Once you start using this service, players will be able to download and play more than 100 games on their devices.

Participation in the service is not possible for every game. Expert developers will decide the games that should be included in the Apple Arcade service. The platform, which also includes indie games, will be updated frequently and players will be able to encounter new games every month.
According to the statement made by Apple, all of the games to be published in the service will be games that can be played offline. It is also possible to take advantage of family sharing feature for games where it is possible to play even without internet, so just like Spotify, other members of the family will have the opportunity to benefit from the service.

For now, the Apple Arcade service, which will only be released for iPad, iPhone, Mac and Apple TV, is thought to continue to exist in other platforms in the future.
