Your actions and your choices will determine the fate of the Batman

In this gritty and violent new story from the award-winning creators of The Walking Dead, you'll make discoveries that will shatter Bruce Wayne's world and the already fragile Gotham City.

The free game gives you access to all five episodes in this all-new series from the award-winning studio, so get playing.

Tekken 6

 Tekken 6 is actually the seventh main instalment in the Tekken franchise - one of the most successful fighting games series of all time.

Tekken 6 features bigger stages with more interactivity than its predecessors, such as walls or floors that can be broken to reveal new fighting areas.

The character customization feature has been enhanced, and certain items have implications in some aspects of gameplay.

LEGO Star Wars 2: The Original Trilogy

LEGO Star Wars 2: The Original Trilogy follows the Rebel Alliance's battle to dismantle the Galactic Empire and rebuild a galaxy in pieces.

May the force be with each and every one of you as we break into a new decade

From Darth Vader's pursuit of Princess Leia aboard her blockade runner to a showdown on the reconstructed Death Star, the game includes plenty of the family-friendly action.

This game includes all the puzzles and humour that earned the original LEGO Star Wars such popularity and acclaim.

Styx: Shards of Darkness

Styx returns in a new stealth adventure where players can explore huge open environments, assassinate enemies, and experiment with the vast array of lethal abilities and weapons in our assassin's arsenal.

Sneak your way around alone, or with a friend in coop mode

Climb the dizzying Elven city, traverse the perilous territory of the Dwarfs, and survive vast unexplored lands filled with lethal dangers to fulfil your mission - but failure to succeed could have huge consequences for your kin.

Climb, swing, and hang through multi-layered sandbox environments, and spend experience points in assassination, infiltration and magic to learn new skills and abilities.
