These are the first 35 games coming to Apple Arcade

These are the first games coming to Apple Arcade that we’ve heard about so far – we’ll be updating this list as new titles are revealed.

Apple Arcade games

Apple is promising to make over 100 exclusive games available through its service.

These titles will be made available to Arcade subscribers free-of-charge for playback across every device, and playable online.

The games are expected to be at the leading edge of games development on Apple’s systems, with titles coming from some of the biggest names in the sector.

Apple is investing millions of dollars to support development of the games and titles will come from some of the biggest names.

People like Hironobu Sakaguchi, Ken Wong, Will Wright and dozens more.

Apple’s gaming platform

“Apple has joined forces with some of the world’s most innovative game developers to push the boundaries of what’s possible. We’re working closely with these visionaries to help them realise the games of their dreams — and yours,” the company said.

There are no in-game ads and you can play these titles on iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV (thanks, I guess, to Marzipan).

You can also share the games with up to six family members.

The service will launch in over 150 countries in fall 2019. .It will be interesting to see how many of these titles integrate AR.

Without further ado, here are the titles we’ve been able to identify so far:

Atone: Heart of the Elder Tree

Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.
