The Xbox team is bringing back its Summer Spotlight. Judging by the list, this summer’s gameplay will be dominated by exclusive betas for the month of August 2016. The idea behind Xbox’s Summer Spotlight is to highlight new games coming to the Xbox One over the next six weeks (July 26 – Sept 5) as summer kicks into full swing, and the lure of air condition gameplay grows even stronger. Major Nelson is planning big things for the Summer Spotlight:

To celebrate the Summer Spotlight, I will be giving away an Xbox One S, Xbox Elite Wireless Controllers and copies of every Summer Spotlight title. Details coming soon!
