Google Play Pass Takes on Apple’s Arcade With US$1.99/Mth Limited Offer

Google has just announced its Play Pass game subscription service just a week after Apple’s announcement of Apple Arcade.

Costing USD 4.99 per month, Google Play Pass comes in as much as Apple Arcade, but will cost a promotional USD 1.99 per month for a limited time.

The service offers 350 games and apps for Android platforms, without any in-app purchases or advertisements. For comparison, Apple Arcade advertises 100 exclusive titles by some top game creators like Hironobu Sakaguchi, Ken Wong, Will Wright and others.

In addition to games like Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Terraria and Monument Valley, Google Play Pass will include free access to apps like AccuWeather and Facetune. These freely-available apps and games will be listed in a new Play Pass tab in the Google Play Store.

However, unlike Apple Arcade, Google Play Pass will include apps that are not exclusive, and will not receive direct funding from Google. It will be compatible with Android mobile, laptop and tablet devices with Play Station 16.6.26 onwards and running Android version 4.4 and above.

Local pricing and availability in Singapore has yet to be announced.
