Xbox LIVE Marketplace Additions for Week of August 17; Deal of the Week

Ignite your sense of adventure and dive into the action/adventure game featuring Tomb Raider icon Lara Croft as Summer of Arcade delivers its final downloadable hit this Wednesday, August 18: “Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light” (Crystal Dynamics/Square Enix). But launch is just the beginning - stay tuned for future downloadable add-ons, including the first expansion pack which Crystal Dynamics will be offering for free for the first 30 days, exclusively on Xbox LIVE.  It’s been an unforgettable summer, so don’t forget to also purchase all five Summer of Arcade games: “LIMBO,” “Hydro Thunder Hurricane,” “Castlevania Harmony of Despair,” “Monday Night Combat” and “Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light” before August 31, 2010 11:59pm EST, and receive 1200 Microsoft Points for free!

Yearning for more downloadable fun after the sun sets on Summer of Arcade? Embark on a completely new “Dead Rising®” (Capcom Entertainment) adventure in “Dead Rising® 2: CASE ZERO” (Capcom Entertainment), available on August 31 exclusively on Xbox LIVE for 400 Microsoft Points. This Prologue consists of unique content not available in the full retail release of “Dead Rising® 2″ and will introduce new protagonist Chuck Greene as he and his daughter find themselves caught in a desert town overrun with zombies. Set two years after the original game and three before the action of “Dead Rising® 2,” “Dead Rising 2®: CASE ZERO” explores the link between the two titles and gives players a taste of the new gameplay they will experience in the full game as they create combo weapons, rescue survivors and take on a ruthless Psychos before making their escape.  In addition, players can carry over status and items earned to the full game when “Dead Rising®2″ releases in North America on September 28.
