"With one subscription, you'll get access to over 100 new and exclusive games," Ann Thai, senior product manager. for the App Store, said during anin Cupertino, California. "You will not find these games on another mobile platform or other subscription service."
Instead of something like what you get from Microsoft, Sony, orApple will instead include offering premium games from different developers. These games will be exclusive to Apple and will have a special section in the App Store. Apple will charge people a monthly service charge, but she has not indicated how much more.
Apple Arcade will be available for iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV, which will come in more than 150 countries around the world. With the subscription, Apple says people can play as much as they want without ads or additional purchases. They will also be able to play offline.
Arcade will feature more than 100 new and exclusive games made by renowned studios and developers around the world, including Annapurna Interactive, Cartoon Network, Konami, Lego, Sega, Hironobu Sakaguchi, Ken Wong and Will Wright.
"These developers are one of the greatest narrators and artists in the world," said Thailand. "They create games that have never been possible before."
Apple reports that it is developing its subscription gaming service, sometimes described as Netflix for games, last year. But this is not the company's first experience in the games.
Apple has years of experience with the games. Launching iPhone makes Apple vanguard a new era of mobile and casual games. Apple has been a key force in expanding gaming beyond expensive consoles and high-performance computers as games have become a major element of the App Store. During App Store's biggest week of sales, when apps reached $ 1.22 billion in the last week of 2018, Apple announced that the main reason was the games. A shop that has about 300,000 free and paid games. Games are also the most popular category in the App Store, he said.
Apple has flirted with other spheres of games before. When the company redesigned Apple TV in 2015 after years of neglect, it opened the door so you can play more games on your TV by pushing in the direction of the console. The Apple TV remote control trackpad was the standard controller for all games offered on Apple TV, but Apple TV also added support for legitimate gaming controllers such as Steelseries and Horipad, so Apple TV owners can play arcade or console styles.
Now, with its subscription service, Apple is likely to be able to attract even more people. The company said it would continue to add games to the service on a regular basis.
