Microsoft announced today its new Play to Earn program for Xbox Live Rewards, MyPunchcard, scheduled to launch April 1.

Throughout April, Xbox Live users who play arcade titles and add to their game collection will earn rewards. By blacking out all three Arcade Punchcards, users will be guaranteed a spot in upcoming VIP exclusives.

There are three ways to earn rewards over the coming month:

  • Play 20 hours of any combination of arcade games, receive a free avatar item
  • Purchase any four arcade games for 400 Microsoft Points or more from Xbox LIVE, receive a one month Xbox LIVE Gold membership
  • Spend 3200 Microsoft Points on arcade games, receive 800 Microsoft Points in return.

This April will see the launch of six new arcade titles: BattleBlock Theater, Double Dragon II, Motocross Madness, Sacred Citadel, God Mode and Monaco.
