Apple Arcade: Playing to Win

Apple thinks Arcade can bring better games to more people across a lot of different kinds of devices. CNET has gone behind-the-scenes with multiple Apple Arcade game developers to understand how they are adapting the way they make games for the new service.

Priced at $5 per month or $60 per year, roughly the price of one A-list console game, Apple offers a subscription to over 100 games and is counting on that aggressive pricing to counter the subscription fatigue that's hitting most consumers.

With curated family-friendly games, automatic family sharing, offline downloads, the ability to play across multiple platforms and no in-app purchases, Apple is especially betting that it can appeal to a lot of parents. But, like all video game platforms, it will live or die on the appeal of its games catalog. CNET will highlight the best and most interesting games.
