Apple Arcade: Every Game and Update Coming in September

Apple Arcade — a CNET Editors’ Choice Award pick in 2021 — has more than 200 games in its catalog to play for just $5 a month, or $60 annually. The service offers original and exclusive titles, as well as familiar games in the service’s App Store favorites and timeless classics sections. These games are available in the App Store already, but with an Arcade subscription you can play them without ads and paywalls for no extra charge. 

Here’s what we’re expecting for September’s lineup and beyond:

Gris

Developer: Devolver Digital
Release date: Sept. 30

Gris is a stunning game about a young girl processing grief. The game uses puzzles, platforming sequences and challenges as you move from level to level. Perhaps one of the most interesting aspects of this game is that the girl’s feelings are manifested through her dress, which gives her special abilities. You also can’t die in the game, which takes some of the stress out of playing. Gris is already available in the App Store for $5, but Arcade subscribers will be able to play for no extra charge.

NBA 2K23

Developer: 2K
Release date: Oct. 18
