At the September 10 Apple Event, we got more details about Apple Arcade then ever before. We now know it's dropping September 19 and will only cost $4.99 a month. Apple Arcade will also be able to be shared among family members. It will let subscribers play over 100 exclusive games from a selection of iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV titles as often as they'd like. It will also include game trailers, and editorial content like game guides and sneak peeks. 

So far we know that the Apple Arcade will not be a streaming service - instead you'll be able to download games via the App Store and play them without a high-speed internet connection. The full list of available games has yet to be released, but studios like Lego and Bossa are creating titles specifically for the Arcade, so we're sure to see more games added in the coming months. 

At the Apple Event, we got previews for Frogger in Toy Town, Sayonara Wild Hearts, and the newly-announced Shin Sekai: Into the Depths, a Capcom title that's set in an underwater world. All three games were demoed on an iPad.

And while we don't have the entire list, we do have 32 confirmed titles heading to Apple Arcade later this year. Here's the list:

  • Atone: Heart of the Elder Tree
  • Beyond a Steel Sky

There are also whispers that No Man's Sky could be available on the Apple Arcade, which sprung up after a Twitter user noticed that an advertisement for the service featured the game's title and imagery sprawled across an Apple TV that was meant to be using the Apple Arcade. Expect to hear some big announcements about upcoming titles in the months leading up the Apple Arcade's September 19 launch.
