Gaming is About to Get Serious: Here's Why

If you are an avid video game player than I am sure that you have been using your smartphone to play some games. However, the worst thing about using your phone is that regularly ads keep on popping while you are playing. But things are about to change especially for iPhone users.

Apple is finally releasing their game subscription service known as Apple Arcade. This new service is aimed at streaming video games which will be available on the iPhone, Mac, iPod and Apple TV. Here is everything that you need to know about Apple's new gaming service. As these slots reviews will tell you, there are more gamers today than ever before.

About Apple Arcade.

Apple Arcade takes the form of a monthly subscription service which you can get on your various Apple devices. It will give you a chance to avail yourself all the best titles from the Apple Store some of which are not available anywhere else. There are also additional games which will be updated regularly, and you can easily access them from the Apple Store. I know you will say that the service sounds like Xbox Game Pass. This might be true because some of the development partners who taken up in Apple Arcade include Cartoon Network, Sumo Digital, Sega, Konami and Disney.

If you are already bothered that the Apple Arcade is only targeting Apple devices, then I have some good news for you. You can play some of the games on various mobile phones, laptops and desktops. There is even more good news for Apple users. You can transfer your progress from one device to another. This means that you can easily transfer your game from one platform to another such as from mobile to TV. However, this move is very similar to Google Stadia which was recently launched.

When will Apple Arcade be launched?

The upcoming gaming service will be launched in over 150 countries this fall. Although Apple has kept things on the down low about which kind of games will be available on the platform. All that they have confirmed is that the service will give players a chance to play offline and future games updates will be done at no extra cost. However, one thing is for sure Apple is competing with various platforms which are offering AAA games. And since it has some significant developers on its side, then they are sure to boost the credibility of the Apple Arcade.

How will Apple change the gaming industry?

If you have been following Apple closely, then you will notice that this is not the first time they are launching a gaming service. However, the company has come out to assure that this time around Apple Arcade will not fail. Moreover unlike Google's Stadia, Microsoft xCloud and PlayStation Now the Apple Arcade will not be a cloud service. Apple is one of the largest tech companies in the world; their entry into the gaming industry will sure change a lot of things.
