Just a couple of days prior to its scheduled launch on the 19th of September, the gaming subscription service Apple Arcade is already available to iOS 13 public beta testers. It seems that the service is slowly rolling out to some lucky players, though the exact number is currently unknown.

Apple Arcade is set to officially launch this Thursday, but some iOS 13 beta testers have been able to access it already

Apparently, the developers whose games are part of the services were also unaware that their products would be accessible earlier than intended. This is a bigger issue than you might think. Look at Sayonara Wild Hearts for example. Its PS4 and Switch versions were set to launch on Thursday, the same day the mobile version was supposed to arrive via Apple Arcade. But now, since many people already have access to the subscription service and thus the game, there’s a very real concern that spoilers will spread before console players can even pick up the game. As a result, developer Simogo has had to take to Twitter to plead for people not to spoil its game.

Apple Arcade currently includes 50 games, all of which are available to those who opt to pay $4.99 (Rs 350) a month to subscribe to it. Moreover, new games are promised to come every week, so it seems the value for money is decent here.

Also, lots of other interesting games are set to launch later as well.  If you can’t access Apple Arcade yet, be patient, as the service will officially launch this Thursday alongside iOS 13.
