There have been so many services added into the market that aims to deliver consumers a means of playing a wide assortment of video games for a monthly fee. While we saw this mainly on console platforms, the service type venture recently hit the Apple ecosystem with the Apple Arcade announcement.
Essentially this is a service that provides Apple device owners from the Macbook, iPhone and iPad, a means of playing countless video game titles with just a monthly fee. While it’s not a challenge at all to find great free mobile titles to enjoy, the premium service subscription gives players notable game hits that are free from advertisements and in-app purchases.
This new service may have triggered Google to quickly come up with a similar service for their Android running devices. Today, we’re learning about Google Play Pass, a service that offers players the ability to play over 300 video game titles for just $4.99. Overall, it seems that this service is practically a carbon copy of the Apple Arcade. Players will have access to games like Thimbleweed Park, This Is The Police, Stardew Valley, and Limbo.
Also similar to the Apple Arcade, players will have the ability to share the Google Play Pass with five other family members. It’s also worth mentioning that the game subscription is only $1.99 per month for the first year then afterward, you’ll have to pay $4.99 per month. If you’re just wanting to test the game service out then a free 10-day trial can be redeemed now.
