Apple announce new cross-platform gaming subscription

A literal game-changer, if you will.

At Monday's Apple Event in Cupertino, California, the tech giants announced a new gaming service that will host games not seen on any other mobile devices.


You will be able to download all the games on the service across platforms on iOS, macOS and tvOS, and they will be ad-free.

The subscription is said to boast over 100 new and exclusive games while Apple will be adding new content "all the time."

Disney and Konami are just some of the partners that the service has announced thus far, according to

Another important note is that all games on the Arcade will be playable offline, meaning internet access will not be necessary.


"We want to make gaming even better,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said onstage.
