The Xbox Games Store jumps to lightspeed this week as Star Wars: Battlefront is now available to download for the Xbox One. Like a good blaster at your side, EA and DICE have brought the franchise, and its signature slate of online multiplayer battles, back for a new generation of players.

But a very different order of knights took up residence on the Xbox Games Store earlier this week. Chainsawesome Games released Knight Squad, an overhead arena battler that bears more than a passing resemblance to Gauntlet and Bomberman. If that sounds like your kind of thing, I’ve got good news, Microsoft has inducted Knight Squad into the Games With Gold program and its a free download for the next four weeks.

Continuing on with our knightly theme, Telltale Games has launched the finale of their Game of Thrones adaptation for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. Episode 6: The Ice Dragon forces House Forrester into the events surrounding the War of the Five Kings and they’ll have to survive “a maelstrom of bloody warfare, revenge, intrigue, and horror” to make it out alive.

Finally this week, Deadpool is no knight in shining armor, but his Xbox 360 game from 2013 has been re-released on the Xbox One.

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

Deadpool ($49.99)
There are a few important things I need to say before you crack into my insanely sweet game. (Oof. Here we go again.) I’m a mercenary with an accelerated healing factor. I’ve been described as unstable, which is just plain coo-coo. (Wait, do sane people say coo-coo?) I’m gonna battle for the safety of humans and mutants. (And even mumans.) Be prepared for just about anything. (Holla!)
