Users on the iOS 14 beta will find that Apple has listed four new Apple Arcade games as "coming soon" in the App Store, as noted by our sister site TouchArcade.

The new listings are available on the "See All Games" list at the bottom of the Apple Arcade tab in the App Store on iOS 14, but are not currently visible on iOS 13 devices. The four upcoming games include:

  • Next Stop Nowhere: A "road trip adventure story set in a colorful, cutthroat vision of outer space," the title will be an Apple Arcade exclusive.


  • Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time: A single-player action platformer based on the Adult Swim series, the title is also coming to consoles and PCs. It takes place during the show's season finale and involves an alternate timeline where Jack travels through multiple levels on a new quest to eventually defeat his nemesis Aku.


  • The Last Campfire: An adventure story about a lost ember trapped in a puzzling place, the new title from Hello Games, creators of No Man's Sky, is also coming to PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One.


  • World's End Club: A 2D side-scroller about a dozen 12-year-old oddball kids headed on a 1,200-kilometer journey after they are involved in a bus accident on a class trip and find that "extraordinary powers begin to awaken within them."

All of the new games will be available to ‌Apple Arcade‌ subscribers on the App Store for iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV, as well as in the Mac App Store. ‌Apple Arcade‌ provides ‌iPhone‌, ‌iPad‌, ‌Apple TV‌, and Mac users with access to over 100 games with no in-app purchases or ads for $4.99 per month after a free one-month trial.

Do the original games remain in the service indefinitely? This was already a great deal but if it eventually has hundreds of games, it’ll be incredible.

From the other side of the coin, I've love to just buy one or two of these games once and not subscribe to a gaming service in perpetuity. I'm perfectly fine waiting though. If Apple Arcade games eventually come to the regular app store, even after 1 or 3 years, that would be great!

Honestly I'm tempted to just pay for one month so I can play through the Samurai Jack game!

And there we have it folks.

Samurai Jack looks cool. I'd like to play that myself.

This latest batch of games looks decent. The campfire graphics very nicely done.

I'd like the option to pay and own.

I recently got Arcade at the prompting of my kid...I think if you've got the money to spend on it, it's worth it. I only tried a few games so far, but I found one that I like a lot. It's much better than being distracted by ads all the time.

If Apple keep adding this sort of thing...we'll have a lot more 'prompting.'

Some cool stuff here.

Okay, I want to play that Samurai Jack game!!

Is there no way to purchase the game directly? Instead off Apple Arcade?
Hmm, maybe just a months pass to try it out. I'd still prefer to buy once and own it.

Really? How will you know if you like them?

I don't always know that, but that's ok. I'd rather take the risk and spend some money on duds that commit to paying a monthly fee in perpetuity.

But most often the reviews and developer screenshots/videos are enough to know whether I will like them. For example, I want to play Mini Motorways because I like the developer and liked their last game Mini Metro.

It coming to steam, ps4 and xbox as well but in Australia its $60 to buy the game. So I am gonna get Apple Arcade to play it, its only $8AUD here for 1 month.

Most games on the Arcade are boring. Most games have very short storyline and you can finish in just few hours. They are not for long term subscription and simply not addictive.

I see the release dates were removed from the article. Guess they were wrong?
