In North America, a year of Arcade costs USD50 in the US and CAD60 in Canada. In the UK and mainland Europe, it’s GBP50 and EUR50, respectively. You save about 20% for one year - here’s how much you’ll be paying per month with either option.

Apple Arcade Monthly subscription Yearly subscription
US USD 5/mo, USD 60 a year USD 4.17/mo, USD 50 a year
Canada CAD 6/mo, CAD 72 a year CAD 5.00/mo, CAD 60 a year
UK GBP 5/mo, GBP 60 a year GBP 4.17/mo, GBP 50 a year
Europe EUR 5/mo, EUR 60 a year EUR 4.17/mo, EUR 50 a year

If that sounds good, you can go into the App Store, Account, Subscriptions and change the Arcade subscription from “1 Month” to “1 Year”.
