Today marks the start of Microsoft’s annual Summer of Arcade promotion. This year’s promotion runs from today until the end of the month, with four game releases: Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, Charlie Murder, Flashback, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.

Microsoft has sent word that they’ll be hosting live-streams of the four games throughout the month, and have teamed up with popular YouTube personalities to host live-streaming gameplay demos of the four titles.

You can find the live-streams at the Polaris Channel, which features the likes of JesseCox, Raychul Moore, and GameGrumps. There will be a new live stream preview of the week’s release every Wednesday this month.

The Summer of Arcade kicked off today with the release of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. Charlie Murder will release on August 14th, Flashback will be released August 21st, with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows releasing on August 28th. Microsoft is also offering to anyone that purchases two of the four Summer of Arcade titles, a free Souls Pack to be used in Ascend: Hand of Kul, a new free to play game coming to Xbox Live.
