Updated: last week of the Xbox Summer Spotlight showcase

By Heidi Nicholas,
The Xbox Summer Spotlight began on July 21st and runs for around six weeks, until August 31st. It's now in its final week, with over 60 included included as Summer Spotlight games. Spending $50/£40 on these selected Summer Spotlight titles before the end of August will get you 5,000 Microsoft Rewards Points and a $5/£4 gift card — $10/£8 if you're an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate member.

We've split the list into games which are listed as already available and those games which are "coming soon" or pre-orders. It's worth noting that some players are reporting issues with purchases not counting towards the promotion, or varying depending on which region you're in. Others have also noted that pre-orders of some games which won't be released until after the promotion might not count either — let us know your experiences in the comments below, and we'll try to update when we learn more.


There's over 60 games overall, with new titles having been added over the last six weeks. The Xbox team says Summer Spotlight "brings you some of the most anticipated games of the season, while shining a light on the best ID@Xbox releases from top independent developers."
