Apple Arcade is adding Gameloft’s classic racing game “Asphalt 8: Airborne” and Zelda-inspired role-playing game “Baldo” this Friday.
“Asphalt 8: Airborne” features more than 240 real cars to select from automakers and brands such as Ferrari, Ducati, Lamborghini, McLaren, Bugatti, Mercedes, Audi, Ford, and Chevrolet. MacRumors reports that this racing game offers high-speed action with plenty of stunts and chaotic takedowns.
Created by the NAPS team, “Baldo: The Guardian Owls” is also coming to other platforms like PlayStation, PC, and Nintendo Switch. The game will be available free to all Apple Arcade subscribers and will be completely ad-free and without in-app purchases, too.
“Baldo: The Guardian Owls” can now pre-register for the game in the App Store. It will be playable on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV.
The Apple Arcade service now offers more than 200 games for iPhone, iPad, and Mac users.
Apple Arcade was first launched in September 2019, so it has taken just under two years for Apple to provide customers with 200 titles to choose from.
With Apple Arcade, all of the games are free, and there are no in-app purchase options or ads. The service is priced at $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year, and with that subscription price, all members of the family can access games.
Apple has been working with both indie developers and big-name gaming companies on Apple Arcade titles since it was launched. In April 2021, Apple began re-releasing classic titles like Fruit Ninja, Monument Valley, Mini Metro, Threes, and more.
