Crossy Road+ hops into Apple Arcade this Friday, October 8

What you need to know

  • Crossy Road is coming to Apple Arcade with the Crossy Road+ title.
  • Crossy Road+ will be available for download from Friday, October 8.
  • The re-released game will be playable on iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV.

The game has been “re-imagined for Apple Arcade.”

Crossy Road was already a hugely popular game and drove a ton of App Store downloads. Now it’s set to do it again when a re-imagined version, dubbed Crossy Road+, hops onto Apple Arcade on Friday, October 8.

The new game will be the same as the old one but with all in-app purchases ripped out — just like all Apple Arcade titles. It’s likely that’s what developer Hipster Whale means when it says the title has been “re-imagined for Apple Arcade,” but we’ll have to wait and see if there are more surprises in store.

While the title is now available for people to pre-register for their download, it’s fair to say that the App Store description is lacking. Here’s what Hipster Whale is saying so far.

Hopefully that’ll be fleshed out a bit before the title hits the App Store proper this Friday!

Sure, Crossy Road+ might not be a game that benefits from a controller but there are tons of Apple Aracade titles that do — not to mention the huge number of titles that are available via the wider App Store.

Friday is a big day for Apple — that’s also the day the new Apple Watch Series 7 goes up for pre-order!
