Microsoft's Summer of Arcade promotion always delivers some of the biggest Xbox Live Arcade releases in any given year, and the company announced today which five games will make up the next cycle of prominent Xbox 360 downloadable games, which starts up in mid-July.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD, an updated collection of skaters and levels from the first two classic series entries, will kick things off on July 18, followed by Wreckateer, a Kinect-enabled catapult game, on July 25. In August, the gorgeously grim side-scroller Deadlight hits on the first of the month, with third-person shooter Hybrid from Scribblenauts developer 5th Cell launches on August 8. Finally, the beautiful and long-in-development Dust: An Elysian Tail (below) drops on August 15 to cap off the promotion.

Wreckateer is priced at 800 Microsoft points ($10), while the other four will sell for 1200 Microsoft points ($15) apiece. And anyone who buys three or more of the titles during the promotional period will receive a rebate of 400 Microsoft points.
