Apple Arcade will launch September 19 for $4.99”

Apple launched its new game subscription service, Apple Arcade, during the September Special Event.

Apple TV+ will be available via the Apple TV app and will also offer a seven-day free trial starting from November 1.

Apple also reaffirms the compromise of offering exclusive original content for Arcade customers.

"The App Store is the world's biggest and most successful game platform". 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. Through Family Sharing, up to six family members can share one Apple TV+ subscription.

Apple has finally announced that Apple Arcade will be released in over 100 markets (including Singapore) on September 19, for S$6.98 a month.

If you've been waiting for an Apple Arcade sub to get your game on, you'll have just 9 days to go. "We think customers of all ages are going to be delighted that a single subscription gives the whole family unlimited access to the full catalog of incredible Apple Arcade games, all without any ads or additional purchases, while knowing every game must meet Apple's high privacy standards". Check out more of our coverage from the Apple 2019 fall keynote here.

The Apple Arcade gaming service will be available on September 19 in over 150 countries.

"Apple TV+ will be available for one-year promotional package with new Apple products", announced Apple CEO Tim Cook. For a monthly fee, players can have access to a library of games that they can play across their Apple devices.

The games will also not feature any ads or microtransactions, which is a welcome change to mobile gamers who are usually inundated with numerous ads everywhere, as well as games that constantly push microtransactions into their faces in order to progress the game they are playing faster. Even though Apple has launched ahead of the Alphabet-owned company, it might not be enough to give an edge.

The company demoed games by Konami, Capcom and Annapurna Interactive at the launch to showcase their catalogue. Apple has already ordered 2 whole seasons of the show, for a reported price tag of $300 million total.
