- The highly-rated RPG doesn't have ads or in-app purchases and is a free download for Apple Arcade subscribers.
After a little wait, Monster Hunter Stories is now available as an Apple Arcade game, making it free for all Apple Arcade subscribers.
Monster Hunter Stories was already available as a $20 purchase, but its move to Apple Arcade means that more people than ever can now enjoy a game that has proven popular among fans of the series.
Being an Apple Arcade game, Monster Hunter Stories is also ad-free and won't feature any in-app purchases, either. Gamers can play as long as they want — and they'll probably want to play a lot! Those with Apple Arcade as part of Apple One will also be able to take the game in for free, too.
Monster Hunter Stories+, as the Apple Arcade version of the game is known, is available for download in the App Store (opens in new tab) right now. The game can be played on iPhone and iPad.

Since then he's seen the growth of the smartphone world, backed by iPhone, and new product categories come and go. Current expertise includes iOS, macOS, streaming services, and pretty much anything that has a battery or plugs into a wall. Oliver also covers mobile gaming for iMore, with Apple Arcade a particular focus. He's been gaming since the Atari 2600 days and still struggles to comprehend the fact he can play console quality titles on his pocket computer.
