E3 2012: The fifth annual XBLA Summer of Arcade program includes Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD, Deadlight, and Wreckateer.

Xbox has unveiled the downloadable titles in Xbox Live Arcade’s 2012 Summer of Arcade program. A letter from Xbox Live head Marc Whitten, published on the blog of director of programming Larry Hyrb, names Deadlight, Dust: An Elsyian Tail, Hybrid, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD, and Wreckateer as the games set for release over the five-week period of the promotion.

Deadlight is a puzzle platformer with zombies; Hybrid is a sci-fi third-person shooter; Wreckateer is the Kinect-based castle bombardment game as shown off at today’s Microsoft E3 conference. Dust: An Elysian Tale, meanwhile, is a hand-painted, action number originally destined for the Indie Games channel. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD, highest profile of the Summer of Arcade titles, is the Tony Hawk series reboot, bringing back familiar tracks from Pro Skater and Pro Skater 2.

No pricing details have been confirmed yet, but each of last year’s Summer of Arcade promotion were 1,200 points apiece, except for Fruit Ninja Kinect, which was 800 points. The season began on July 20 and Xbox owners who purchased the whole set received action-RPG Crimson Alliance for free.
