Microsoft Reveal Xbox LIVE Arcade House Party Line-up & Details


Good news, Xbox LIVE Arcade lovers! Microsoft has today revealed the release dates and prices for the titles that will be included their upcoming Xbox LIVE Arcade House Party promotion.

The virtual party will begin on February 15th, with a new downloadable title hitting on Xbox LIVE Arcade every Wednesday up until March 7th.

Much like previous Xbox LIVE Arcade promotions, Microsoft will be rewarding anyone who purchases all four titles with an 800 Microsoft Points rebate. Not a bad bonus if you were already going to purchase all of the titles listed below.

Warp (Electronic Arts)
Release date: February 15th, Price: 800 Microsoft Points

Play as Zero, a lovable-yet-lethal orange alien with a big score to settle in this puzzle-based stealth action game! Captured by the villainous Commander and imprisoned in his underwater facility, Zero must plan his ultimate escape using his arsenal of alien abilities — warp, frag, echo, swap and launch.

Alan Wake’s American Nightmare (Microsoft Studios)
Release date: February 22nd, Price: 1200 Microsoft Points

Can you survive until sunrise? In this brand-new stand-alone experience, Alan Wake fights the herald of darkness, the evil Mr. Scratch. A thrilling new storyline, hordes of creepy enemies, serious firepower and beautiful Arizona locations combined with a fun and challenging new game mode, make this a must for Alan Wake veterans and the perfect jumping-on point for new players.

Nexuiz (THQ)
Release date: February 29th, Price: 800 Microsoft Points

For centuries, the Kavussari and the Forsellians have waged war. They have a fragile truce but, because of their seething disgust of each other, still pit warriors against each other in arenas rather than on the fields of war. These episodes of lethal combat are broadcast throughout the galaxy as entertainment – a spectacle known as The Nexuiz Competition – an arena-based first-person shooter where you can alter the rules of the match and the laws of physics while dominating opponents in ever-changing hostile environments.

I Am Alive (Ubisoft)
Release date: March 7th, Price: 1200 Microsoft Points

One year after a worldwide cataclysmic event wiped out most of human civilisation, a man struggles for survival. Faced with an insecure, decaying and hazardous world, he scours a desolated city, searching for his long-lost wife and daughter. Survive the suffocating, murky streets covered in dust. Climb the teetering remains of last-standing skyscrapers to reach breathable air and find untouched resources. Explore the crumbling ruins of a once-thriving metropolis. Discover a changed human condition, punctuated by distrustful survivors, dangerous armed gangs and victims in need.
