Less than a week after Google unveiled its own games streaming service, Apple revealed its Apple Arcade, a game streaming platform will allow players to stream over 100 new and exclusive games on their Apple device for a subscription fee.
Apple already offers mobile games in its App Store, and company CEO Tim Cook boasted that Apple's iOS has already become the "largest gaming platform in the world."
"Unlike streaming services, every game will be playable offline, so you can play anywhere regardless of your Internet connection," Apple gaming exec Ann Thai said onstage.
There will be no limit to the amount of games players can access with their subscription. The games will be curated by "expert editors" at Apple and family members can play for no additional charge.
Games showcased for the Apple Arcade program included familiar characters such as Sonic the Hedgehog and Link from The Legend of Zelda.
Apple Arcade will be available this fall in over 150 countries worldwide. Google's game service Stadia, meanwhile, will debut later this year in North America.
