Microsoft has announced their Summer of Arcade lineup for this year filled with five new games. Available this year will be:
Deadlight: Horror comes to Xbox LIVE Arcade in this original cinematic survival platformer. Run, jump, climb, and struggle for your life as you search for hope in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse.
Dust: An Elysian Tail: Immerse yourself in a gorgeous hand-painted world on a search for your true identity. As the mysterious warrior, Dust, your action-packed journey will take you from peaceful glades to snowy mountaintops and beyond.
Hybrid: This pioneering third-person shooter is set in the near future, where global conflict exists between a species known as the Variant and a rebel human faction known as the Paladins. Join two factions across hundreds of thousands of players in an ongoing battle for supremacy over the world.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD: The best elements of the classic THPS games have been updated to create an all new skateboarding experience. The gameplay returns to controllers and focuses on the satisfaction of linking sick tricks for maximum points. The style and feel of the best levels from THPS and THPS2 have been refreshed for today's consoles, along with the great music from both games.
Wreckateer: Step up to Kinect, young squire, and join the ranks of the Wreckateers, the finest medieval demolition service in all the land. Wield the Ballista, a giant medieval crossbow, by using your body to steady your aim, fire and guide magical shots mid-air. Using a vast array of ammunition, bring massive castles occupied by grubby goblins crumbling to the ground.
As the trailer mentions at the end by purchasing three of the five games you will be given back 400 Microsoft Points ($5). No dates or prices were given but Summer of Arcade usually begins sometime in July.
