Games you can play this week – barcodes and bros

As January comes to a close and February has its time in the limelight, the gaming release schedule starts to heat up – and we have some interesting-looking games arriving this week, including the return of everyone’s favourite barcoded assassin, two punchy bros, some ancient warriors, and a woolly dinosaur.

Here’s what you need to know about the games releasing this week, 30 January – 5 February 2017:

Double Dragon IV

30 January (PS4); 31 January (PC)

Double Dragon IV may look like an old game ported to the current-gen consoles, but it is in fact a brand-new game and long-awaited sequel to the veteran side-scrolling Double Dragon beat-’em-up series.

The co-op brawler features a fully-fledged story mode which picks up following the events of Double Dragon II, along with a duel mode where you fight against another player, and a tower mode where you keep fighting and climbing until you die.

There are loads of characters to unlock and the visuals look suitably retro-tastic. Double Dragon IV looks like a lot of fun!

Hitman: The Complete First Season

31 January (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

Hitman: The Complete First Season is a retail edition of the episodic game series from 2016 (which we really enjoyed), and includes every location, challenge, and contract from the respective chapters.

This means players will have access to Paris, Sapienza, Marrakesh, Bangkok, USA and Japan episodes in order to unleash some stealthy assassinations.

In addition, the retail release includes a 3 Bonus Missions pack, covering the special summer missions The Icon and A House Built on Sand, plus the upcoming Landslide mission.

Buyers will get the game’s original soundtrack, a Making Of documentary, and the Hitman Blood Money Pack, which offers up the signature white Blood Money suit.
