Vampire Survivors Is Coming To Apple Arcade

Sink your teeth into it.

While the trophy hunters among us still wait (im)patiently for the promised PlayStation release, Vampire Survivors is making its way to another service very soon.

Announced alongside other new additions including Temple: Run Legends and a Vision Pro-ready update for Castle Crumble, Poncle’s runaway hit will be joining the August pple Arcade line-up. Specifically, it’ll be in the form of Vampire Survivors+, separating it from the existing free-to-play version already available on Apple’s App Store and supported by ads.

The Apple Arcade version of Vampire Survivors will not only be ad-free but also come with the paid Legacy of the Moonspell and Tides of the Foscari expansions, though it’s unclear if the same will eventually be true of the Emergency Meeting and Operation Guns DLCs.

Here’s more on the three new titles that Apple has announced for Arcade in August:

Vampire Survivors+ by Poncle
As players fight for their lives in the toxic, devil-ridden environment of Vampire Survivors+, a whole new world of horror is unleashed. From dusk to dawn, night creatures will cross their paths, forcing them to rely on the goodwill of their fellow survivors in order to prevail. While garlic, a cross, and a magic wand are useful tools to defeat their enemies, the responsibility ultimately lies in their capable hands as they test their strength against these deadly creatures from their touchscreens. This multistage game has a wide array of settings, including a multiplayer mode where up to four players can slay the undead on the same device by connecting game controllers to play together.

Temple Run: Legends by Imangi Studios
Run, swim, jump, and join a legion of heroes in Temple Run: Legends. In addition to the classic infinite run mode, players can explore ancient Aperion with fresh gameplay modes, dynamic challenges and rewards, and over 500 levels in story mode. Players should prepare to traverse exciting climates, interact with fascinating inhabitants and creatures, and encounter a unique, all-new cast of characters as they conquer their next adventure.

Castle Crumble by Orbital Knight
Players will embark on an adventure across a variety of kingdoms and unique biomes to take down the enemy’s castles in this physics-based puzzle game. Unique controls allow players to use their hands to precision target the castles’ weak points using powerful explosives, mystical spells, and mysterious unlockable boosts, and watch the castles blast apart across their living rooms.
