The platform — which previously offered live TV, various series and shows, movies, and podcasts — has ventured into the gaming world for the very first time, bringing a whole roster of retro Atari games that you can access through your smartphone, web browser, or even Apple TV. So far, 27 games are included within the subscription, spanning across original arcade releases to titles for both the Atari 2600 and Atari 7800, including Centipede, Missile Command, Food Fight and more. For those with their own game ROMs, you’ll also be able to add those to your Plex Arcade library.
As for pricing, current Plex Pass subscribers can add in the Arcade category for an extra $3 USD a month, while new subscribers will be charged $5 USD. There’s also a seven-day free trial being offered right now, which you can sign up for over on the company’s website.
*Drum roll* Welcome to Plex Arcade. ?
Thanks to the streaming tech of @ParsecTeam and the most hallowed name in retro games, @atari, we’re ready to start gaming like it’s 1981. It’s the stuff 80’s and 90’s kids dream of…and forget about tokens, you can try it free! pic.twitter.com/GvFlfCeqMc
