For five years now, Microsoft has been running their Summer of Arcade promotion, which turns the gaming universe’s eyes to the indie downloadable game space. Offering many new releases and tons of discounts on DLC and downloadable games, the Summer of Arcade was always a major event for fans of indie titles.
To celebrate their fifth year of this promotion, two of the biggest indie games on XBLA are getting exclusive Summer of Arcade content. Minecraft players will be able to get a “customized Summer of Arcade skin pack” with skins inspired by the Summer of Arcade games that released this year. Trials Evolution will be getting new tracks which will release alongside each new Summer of Arcade release.
The Xbox Summer of Arcade begins on July 18th with the release of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD. At the same time, the Minecraft skin pack and first Trials track will become available to download.
