Blacklight: Tango Down shoots up XBL
Xbox Live Update: Ignition's $15 shooter hits Xbox Live Arcade next to Monkey Island Special Edition 2: LeChuck's Revenge and Ski-Doo Challenge; Fight Night Round 4 added to Games on Demand.
Earlier this week, Microsoft priced and dated its Summer of Arcade lineup and further specified that the event will kick off July 21 with Limbo. Those seeking new digital content right now, however, can enjoy three new XBLA titles and a Games on Demand release this week in the storefront.
Of the three XBLA titles to arrive this week, Ignition Entertainment's shooter Blacklight: Tango Down is available for 1,200 Microsoft points ($15). The title features seven game modes, 12 maps, and online multiplayer support for up to 16 players. Additionally, the game has four Black Ops-style missions for players to compete in either by themselves or cooperatively.
Also hitting XBLA this week is Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge (800 MS points, or $10). This swashbuckling tale of Guybrush Threepwood, the bumbling pirate, pits the seafarer against the evil zombie buccaneer LeChuck. The title originally launched in 1991, and the special edition has been updated with enhanced visuals, an in-game hint system, and an updated musical score.
The third XBLA title arriving this week is Ski-Doo Challenge (1,600 MS points, or $20). The snow-cross racing title from Valcon Games features officially licensed Ski-Doo snowmobiles and is a sequel to Ski-Doo Snow-Cross. Wintertime racing aficionados can expect more races and sleds in Challenge than its predecessor.
Arriving on the Games on Demand hub this week is just one title: EA Sports' Fight Night Round 4 (2,400 MS points, or $29.99). Available in all regions except Asia, the well-received boxing title was originally released in 2009 and features legendary fighters Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson.
The above listing is Microsoft's current download schedule. It is subject to change. All content may not be available in all Xbox Live regions.
