Four big games (and several smaller ones) are now available to download through the Xbox Games Store.

This week’s biggest game has to be the return of the Birdman as Activision and Tony Hawk have teamed up once more for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 (Xbox One). Developed by Robomodo, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 goes back to the franchise’s roots with ten pros and more than 80 unique missions.

Also available this week is a double-double of new basketball games from 2K Games and EA Sports. NBA 2K16 (Xbox One, Xbox 360) reinvents 2K’s MyCareer with a new experience written, directed, and produced by Spike Lee. On the other side of the court, EA Sports has added an upgraded player customization mode to NBA Live 16.

Finally this week, Mouldy Toof and Team17 have teamed up with Robert Kirkman to merge The Escapists with The Walking Dead. The result, The Escapists: The Walking Dead (Xbox One), features the patented pixelated presentation of the original game with the undead hordes from the world’s most famous zombie series.

More information on all of these games (and a few more) can be found after the break.
