Summer of Arcade 2013 Prices, Dates Announced


Microsoft’s annual rush of downloadable titles is set to begin August 7th via $15 title Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. The Summer of Arcade 2013 promotion rolls into Wednesday of each week. Beat-em-up Charlie Murder ($10) follows on the 14th, remake of realism enthused sci-fi classic Flashback ($10) following on August 21st, and a month long XBLA exclusive in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows ($15) hitting on the 28th.

Microsoft is also tagging the promo with a bonus. Purchasers of two or more games will receive a “Souls Pack” for Ascend: Hand of Kul, a free-to-play title with no announced release date. Previous years included a discount or even a free game, making this years bonus a genuinely pathetic letdown.
