Apple decided to keep up with Google and announced its own gaming service for iOS, Mac and Apple TV called Arcade.

What is known

If the same Stadia launches games in the cloud, thenArcade works like "Netflix for mobile games." Instead of paying for each game, gamers are offered to pay for a subscription, which provides access to projects from the App Store. Subscribers will be able to play offline, disable advertising in games, and connect up to six users to one account.

There are already more than 300 thousand games available in the App Store, and Apple promises to choose better for the service's library. In addition, they plan to create exclusive projects for Arcade, and the starting lineup will include 100 games.

The announcement trailer showed games from differentgenres including platformers, action and arcade. Some have already been announced, while others caught the eye of gamers for the first time. Apple has not yet mentioned its own studio, but said that Cartoon Network, Klei Entertainment, Konami, LEGO, SEGA, Snowman, Ustwo Games and others were interested in the service.

Arcade will be released in the fall in 150 regions, but Appledidn't talk about the subscription cost. At the presentation, Apple also showed off its own Apple Card credit card, as well as the Apple News+ news service and the new Apple TV+ video streaming service.

Let us remember that at the end of January rumors appeared that Apple plans to make a gaming device out of the new iPod Touch.
