The Xbox Summer Spotlight for this year has kicked off.

Microsoft announced that this year’s Summer Spotlight, a yearly promotion that highlights indie/digital releases in the summer, is now live on Xbox One.

Over 25 new digital games will be part of the spotlight this year, which takes place July 26 to September 5. New games will be released every week, and the list will keep growing.

In addition, if you spend $40 on games featured in the spotlight, whether through in-game purchases or just by buying games, you’ll get 4,000 in Xbox Rewards Credits.

You can see the list of games announced so far below. Note that some games released earlier in the month such as Kerbal Space Program, the Solus Project, and Sword Coast Legends are also part of the Summer Spotlight.
