At Apple’s September 2019 Keynote, we finally learned more about the exciting upcoming Apple Arcade. We now know it will launch on September 19, and will cost a mere $4.99 per month with a free month trial.
But we really care about the games at Gamezebo, so we thought we’d round up all of the games that Apple has announced so far and include a little bit more information about them. Let’s take a look.
Atone: Heart of the Elder Tree
Atone: Heart of the Elder Tree is a puzzler that draws inspiration from Norse Mythology. It’s already available on Steam but makes its mobile debut on Apple Arcade.

Beyond a Steel Sky is the long-awaited sequel to Revolution’s classic adventure Beneath a Steel Sky. It’s a visually stunning step up for Revolution and we can’t wait to play it.

Apple Arcade sure isn’t going to have a shortage of adventure games. Jenny LeClue is yet another, with a bunch of puzzles to solve, environments to navigate, and crimes to uncover.
Kings of the Castle
No idea. Kings of the Castle is coming to Apple Arcade and sports a wonderful cartoon visual style but that’s all we know.
Lego Arthouse will likely bring a few tears to cheeks when it arrives on Apple Arcade. Much like Toy Story, it explores the relationship with toys kids have when they grow up.

Overland looks awesome. It’s a post-apocalyptic road trip adventure that challenges you to simply survive by scavenging for resources, rescuing fellow travellers, and battling a variety of grim creatures.
Pac-Man Party Royale
What’s a games platform without Pac-Man on it? Fortunately, Apple Arcade doesn’t have to figure that out, as Bandai Namco has announced a four-player multiplayer spin on the franchise. The last Pac-Man standing is crowned the winner.
