By Kirsten Howard. Posted

Excited for yet another subscription service? Probably not, but here we are, as Apple is about to launch a new one, and is promising that over 100 games will be included after it gets underway on 19th September.

Apple Arcade will set you back £4.99 a month, and all the games therein will be available exclusively (at least for a while) via iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and Apple TV platforms, with no ads or microtransactions. Apple Arcade for iPadOS and tvOS 13 will arrive slightly later on 30th September.

A full list of games isn't out there yet, but we have some details on some upcoming titles that could be in your hands from next week onwards, including ChuChu Rocket! Universe from Sega and Devolver's Exit The Gungeon.
