Apple Arcade teased in Mac App Store ahead of macOS Catalina launch

What you need to know

  • Apple Arcade is being teased by Apple in the Mac App Store.
  • The service should be available now if you have the GM of macOS Catalina.
  • Apple Arcade is a gaming service that's available for $5 per month.

Apple has begun teasing the release of Apple Arcade on Mac ahead of macOS Catalina's public release. However, if you've downloaded the GM of macOS Catalina, you can apparently access the service now.

Announced in September, Apple Arcade offers unlimited access to over a hundred games for a monthly price of $5. A subscription can be shared by family members, making it a great deal for anyone who enjoys mobile gaming.

The biggest draw of Apple Arcade is the games found in Apple Arcade don't feature in-app purchases or advertising, which has become a major point of discussion in free-to-play titles. So far, people are really enjoying Apple Arcade, with many praising the variety and quality of the service's games.

We actually got a heads up Apple Arcade would be available in some capacity on Mac after a listing, which was later pulled, appeared on Apple's website.

With Apple having released the GM of macOS Catalina, the software's public release appears imminent. Until that happens, you can access Apple Arcade on iPhone, iPad, and tvOS.
