Apple is adding more than 30 games to the Apple Arcade catalog.
Apple's subscription-based game service Apple Arcade is expanding its catalog. The expansion comes in the form of two new categories called Timeless Classics and App Store Greats, with more than 30 new titles also being added to the service.
Two new categories have been added to Apple Arcade
In a press release on April 2, 2021 in the Apple Newsroom, Apple announced that two brand new categories had been added to the Apple Arcade service.
The first, called Timeless Classics, contains classics that everyone has played at some point. Apple Arcade subscribers can now enjoy games from "typical genres with titles like Good Sudoku by Zach Gage, Chess – Play & Learn and Backgammon". All of these games can be accessed by iPhone and iPad users.
App Store Greats allows users to play the "Best Award Winning Games" from the App Store that have been pushed to Apple Arcade. These include very popular titles like Fruit Ninja Classic, Threes !, and Mini Metro. In addition, all titles under App Store Greats are completely "ad-free and fully unlocked". In essence, users don't have to pay anything extra to access the premium features of the above games.
New games are added to Arcade Originals
Apple hasn't forgotten about Arcade Originals either.
The first category in Apple Arcade has a number of new titles. Games like NBA 2K21 Arcade Edition, Star Trek: Legends, and The Oregon Trail are making their way to Arcade Originals.
The best collection of mobile games is much bigger now. Today we're adding 32 games – including a collection of App Store greats and timeless classics.

Matt Fischer, Apple's vice president of the App Store, said these were "brand new games made exclusively for Arcade."

The largest expansion to Apple Arcade to date
With more than 30 new games on the way to Apple Arcade, this is the largest addition to the service to date. The games themselves come from different categories and appeal to all types of users.
Here's what Fischer said about the latest update to Apple Arcade:
Today we're launching our biggest expansion since the service debuted, now offering 180+ great games, including new arcade originals, timeless classics, and App Store greats.
Apple Arcade, like many other Apple services, offers a free trial for those who wish to receive the subscription.
It is clear that Apple has placed great trust in its gaming subscription service. With a portfolio of 180+ games, it looks like Apple's trust is paying off.
