Xbox Live Summer of Arcade Dates Set


The game lineup for this year’s Xbox Live Summer of Arcade promotion was announced back at E3, but at the time no dates were announced, nor was an order of release given. But now both of those lingering questions have been answered. Here’s the schedule.

Limbo – July 21st

Hydro Thunder Hurricane – July 28th

Castlevania: Harmony of Despair – August 4th

Monday Night Combat – August 11th

Lara Croft and the Guardian of the Light – August 18th

All five games will cost 1200 Microsoft Points, and if you buy the whole set you’ll get 1200 Microsoft Points back. You can also earn back 400 Microsoft Points if you purchase any three games.
