It didn’t take long for Google to catch up to Apple Arcade with its own gaming subscription service.

Less than a week after the launch of Apple Arcade, Google revealed Play Pass this morning, offering Android users access to hundreds of games and other apps for just $5 per month.

Google says Play Pass currently comes 350 apps and games. All of the games are ad-free and don’t have any in-app purchases. News apps are added every month. Some of the current titles offered include Terraria, Monument Valley, Risk, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, LIMBO, Lichtspeer, Mini Metro, and Old Man’s Journey.

Along with tons of games, Play Pass includes access to paid apps like AccuWeather. Google is launching Play Pass with a promo that gives you the service for just $1.99 per month for the first 12 months and then $4.99 per month after that. Subscriptions can be shared with up to 5 family members.
