Announced in March, Apple Arcade is a game subscription service that Apple says will feature over 100 new and exclusive games, including original releases.

Apple Arcade games will redefine games and be curated based on originality, quality, creativity, fun and their appeal to players of all ages. Apple Arcade will give customers the freedom to try any game from its handpicked collection of titles that are all-you-can-play, have no ads, ad tracking or additional purchases, and respect user privacy.

Apple hasn't revealed an official launch date or price for Apple Arcade, but with early access testing taking place, it won't be long until those details are revealed.
