Microsoft has launched this year?s ?Summer Spotlight? event for Xbox One, a yearly promotion that highlights indie/digital releases in the summer. The event was announced by Xbox?s Larry Hryb on his Major Nelson blog wherein he stated that over 25 new digital games will be part of the spotlight this year, which takes place from July 26 to September 5. The players who spend $40 on the featured games or the in-game purchases will be able to earn 4,000 Xbox reward credits.
In addition, as a promotional effort for the event, Hryb promised a free Xbox One S, wireless controllers and free access to all the digital game releases. Not only that, there will apparently be three winners so aside from the Xbox One S?console, gamers can even win the Xbox Elite wireless controller and digital games as a standalone for second and third prizes.
Here?s how to enter the contest for a chance to win:
- All you have to do is watch the Summer Spotlight trailer and register using the form available here.
- Deadline to enter is 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT on Tuesday, September 6.
