Apple Arcade Release Date And Game List: All The Games Coming To Apple’s New Service At Launch

Sayonara Wild Hearts

Apple Arcade is nearly here, arguably Apple’s biggest move in the gaming after years as one of the major platform holders in the entire industry without a giant amount of direct involvement. In the years since people first started figuring out that smartphones were good for games mobile development has gone from a sort of strange curiosity to one of the major driving forces in the entire medium, with games that rival or exceed even the biggest names on console and PC and ports of some of the most popular games in the world. Apple is stepping its involvement up with Arcade: it’s offering a big subscription to what it promises will be over 100 games for only $4.99 a month, with a raft of titles from well-known developers as well as a bunch of other stuff. 100 games is a ton of games, even if it’s a drop in the bucket for what’s actually available on the app store.

Apple is promising a few things with this: for one thing, a ton of games. Not just a ton of games, but a ton of premium mobile games without the microtransactions that have come to define mobile gaming after all these years. We’ll have more soon, but for now we have an idea of what’s actually coming to the service when it launches on September 19. Credit for this list goes to Mac Rumors, which poured over the early access in the iOS 13 beta to bring you a list of everything that should be coming at launch.
