More like August of Arcade.
We already knew which games would be featured in this year’s Xbox Live Summer of Arcade, but we didn’t know when they would be released or how much they would cost. That all changed today when Microsoft announced the release dates and prices for all four games.
The Summer of Arcade will start on August 7th with Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and end on August 28th with TMNT: Out of the Shadows. In previous years, Microsoft would reward those who purchased all four games with free Microsoft points, but since they are getting rid of MS Points in exchange for real money, this year is a little different. If you purchase any two games you will receive a Souls Pack for Signal Studios’ upcoming Free To Play Action-RPG, Ascend: Hand of Kul. Souls are used to buy in-game items, so depending on how many Souls you get in this pack and if Ascend ends up being a good game, it could be a nice little bonus item.
The full release date schedule and prices are below, as well as a trailer for the Summer of Arcade.
- Brothers: a Tale of two Sons – August 7th for 1,200 Points
