Here's every game launching as part of Apple Arcade this Thursday

Sayonara Wild Hearts! Cat Quest 2! Exit the Gungeon! More!

Apple's much-trumpeted gaming subscription service, Apple Arcade, officially arrives this Thursday, 19th September. However, some users running the iOS 13 public beta have been granted early access, meaning that we now know exactly which games will be available as part of the £4.99/$4.99 USD monthly subscription at launch.

As reported by Mac Rumours, Apple Arcade will feature a little over 50 titles when it goes live to all on Thursday. New games will be added on a weekly basis, with Apple promising that over 100 new titles will be available "this autumn".

Things get off to a strong start this week, though, thanks to a number of highly anticipated indie games. There's Finji's Overland, for instance, plus the likes of Simogo's Sayonara Wild Hearts, The Gentlebros' Cat Quest 2, WayForward's Shantae and the Seven Sirens, Klei's Hot Lava, Dodge Roll's Exit the Gungeon, and Cornfox & Bros' Oceanhorn 2.

A few big publishers are also along for the ride; Konami has Frogger in Toy Town lined up for Thursday's launch, while Ubisoft is representing with Rayman Mini, and Capcom brings underwater adventure Shinsekai Into the Depths. Square Enix's offering, meanwhile, is Various Daylife, a new RPG from the team behind Bravely Default and Octopath Traveller.

Future titles will include Beyond a Steel Sky (a sequel to Revolution Software's beloved sci-fi point-and-clicker Beneath a Steel Sky), Little Orpheus from The Chinese Room, WayForward's Spidersaurs, Abzû developer Giant Squid's The Pathless, Sonic Racing, and more.
