Download Undertow For Free Next Week

Over the holiday break, Microsoft’s Xbox Live took a serious performance hit, a problem the company blamed on a "massive increase in usage" due to the largest sign-up of new members to the online service.

On Jan. 3, XBL General Manager Marc Whitten apologized to subscribers for the issues and promised a free Xbox Live Arcade game was forthcoming. Today, Microsoft announced that game will be Undertow, a new underwater shooter developed and published by Chair Entertainment.

In a post on the company’s official Gamerscore blog today, Microsoft thanked subscribers for their patience with the service hiccups and promised to keep an eye on things.

"We’ve implemented several improvements to the service, to help ensure ongoing reliability and performance," a Gamerscore blogger posted. "As the popularity of Xbox LIVE expands, we’ll continue to closely monitor the service and make adjustments."

Undertow will be free from Wednesday at 2 a.m. PST through Sunday at 11:59 p.m. PST. The game is free for all Xbox Live members (Gold and Silver) around the world, Microsoft said. The game is typically 800 MS points ($10).
