Apple Arcade is here and it’s going to change the gaming market forever. As most people know already, Apple has never been a front runner for games. Let’s face it, if you’re buying a gaming PC, you’re never going to buy a Mac, but all of that is about to change. Apple Arcade currently has brought over 100 new and exclusive games to the world of Macs and iPhones, but what’s the difference between these games and the ones we already play on our phones?
Well, Apple has teamed up with some of the world’s greatest game developers, such as Charles Cecil (Beneath a Steel Sky, Broken Sword), Hironobu Sakaguchi (Final Fantasy) Adam and Rebekah Saltsman (Night in the woods) and so many others. Because of this, Apple Arcade has a very promising future as we receive completely new and exciting titles that you usually wouldn’t expect to see on the gaming market.
A worthy rival to Stadia
At first look, I was skeptical as Apple Arcade is not a streaming platform, therefore a decent internet connection is not necessary. This could be good but it does mean that your Apple device will be doing most of the work and if you’re using an older iPhone, you may find it struggle, or not even be compatible with some titles. Even so, I think that this is still a step in the right direction as it gives some power back to the developers and gives them creativity to make new and exciting games in ways we haven’t seen for a long time, if not ever!
Expected this Fall, Apple Arcade looks to bring a bright future to gamers across the world. At the moment we don’t know the price, but it’s going to be a subscription based service so hopefully Apple will give us a free trial. Either way, I’m personally looking forward to it’s release.
