Summer of Arcade 2012 Kicks Off July 18

Another batch of great quality titles will kick off the annual Xbox LIVE Summer of Arcade from July 18th starting with the launch of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD. The revamped arcade version will take you into levels from the first two Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games further enhanced in high definition and with online multiplayer.

Wreckateer, the Kinect enabled Angry Birds clone style game in 3D debut’s on July 25th, and will be the only title in the line-up to cost 800 MS Points as all other games in the Summer of Arcade will cost you 1200 MS Points.

Deadlight launches on August 1st and is a post-apocalyptic platformer where players must survive a zombie-infested cross-country trek.

Hybrid follows on August 8th from developers 5th Cell; they claim Hybrid is a pioneering third person shooter 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.

Bringing the Summer of Arcade to a close for 2012 is the action adventure RPG game Dust: An Elysian Tail, on August 15th, featuring a hand-drawn world and a combat system that can be upgraded and expanded as players acquire new skills. It has been a long time overdue and had won the 2009 Microsoft Dream.Build.Play Challenge – originally slated for a 2011 release, it was held back until 2012.

If you purchase three or more games from the Summer of Arcade 2012 line-up, you will see a rebate of 400 MS Points credited to your Xbox LIVE Account at a future date.
