Paris, Oct 18, 2019 – Gameloft, leader in the development and publishing of games, is thrilled to announce Ballistic Baseball is now available on Apple Arcade. Starting today, Apple Arcade subscribers will be able to download and enjoy the fun of a head-to-head arcade baseball game.

Ballistic Baseball, created by Gameloft Brisbane, focuses on the age-old rivalry between pitcher and batter in a stylized yet realistic battle to win the inning. Players’ skills and strategies are put to the test as they take control of their pitchers and batters in play. The game features single player and “Play with Friends” online modes allowing to customize gameplay by choosing one, three, six or nine innings. Additionally, the “Online Games” mode will provide quick three inning matches against other players.

Ballistic Baseball is a real-time multiplayer experience allowing to play against friends in Player versus Player online duels. Players see and react to their opponent’s actions, all in real time. Further expanding the field of players is robust cross-platform play, allowing players on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac and Apple TV to play against the other and to track progress as they switch devices. Unique achievements and balanced matchmaking have also been implemented to create a fun and competitive experience.

“Apple Arcade is an innovative service that adds another great way for players to enjoy games across their Apple devices, whether they are on the go, at work or at home. We are proud to bring our more than 20 years of expertise to Apple Arcade’s historic launch,” said Baudouin Corman, Chief Operating Officer at Gameloft. “We are excited to bring Ballistic Baseball to the debut of Apple Arcade and look forward to players’ reception to this new way to play ball.”
