So, you just had to pay more for Apple Arcade. You want to know what’s behind the price increase. Well, wonder no more! Apple will show you why!


Apple has pretty much laid out a roadmap to show you what’s coming to the service from now until the end of the year. They are brining over 50 updates to games already on the service and eight new games. One game on the list just said they weren’t going free to play anymore.


One of the games on the list is Sonic Dream Team. The game will be launching on December 5 and is a 3D action platformer seeing said team taking the fight to Dr. Eggman once again. The team will consist of Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy Rose, Cream, and Rouge, all of which you can choose between.

Of course, Disney Dreamlight Valley is coming to Apple Arcade, but as the “Arcade Edition”. This game, which also comes out December 5, will exclude the in-game marketplace or Star Path. This is thanks to Apple Arcade making sure these games don’t have in-game purchases. If you ask me, it’s the only thing in the App Store that makes any sense. You will not have cross save between this version and the non-Arcade versions. It shouldn’t matter much, though, as you’ll have access to everything they have including the new Rift in Time expansion.

The other six games coming are listed below:

  • Knotwords+ (Zach Gage, November 3)
  • Football Manager 2024 Touch (Sega and Sports Interactive, November 6)
  • Downwell+ (Devolver Digital, November 17)
  • Delicious – Miracle Of Life+ (GameHouse, November 24)
  • Puzzle & Dragons Story (GungHo, December 5)
  • Turmoil+ (Gamious, December 5)


There are also updates coming to several games already on the service. Those games include:

  • Hello Kitty Island Adventure
  • NBA 2K24 Arcade Edition
  • The Oregon Trail
  • Sneaky Sasquatch
  • Samba de Amigo: Party-To-Go

So, given all that seems to be coming out, maybe subscribing to Apple Arcade may not be such a bad deal. Especially for those who may enjoy a more portable Dreamlight Valley experience.

But what do you think? Let me know in the comments below!
