XBL Content Roundup: February 12th, 2014 [UPDATE]

By Rebecca Smith, 2 years ago
Edit: We've also located a new demo since the publication of this article. Details are below.

Original story:

Due to yesterday's Xbox LIVE Arcade release, we don't get a new title today. Despite this, we do get DLC and the eventual release of a free-to-play Game on Demand.

Xbox 360 Games on Demand

After a soft release in Canada and to beta players around the world, this free-to-play title finally gets its worldwide release for Xbox LIVE Gold members. As explained previously, players without a Gold account will instead be downloading a seven-day timed trial.

World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition
Size: 70.18 MB
Price: FREE
AAA team-based online tank warfare comes to Xbox 360 with the custom built version of the global phenomenon dedicated to armored warfare in the mid-20th century. Command some of history’s most powerful tanks and experience intense combat where the excitement of battle is enhanced by working together with your tank platoon to win the fight, downloadable and free-to-play to Xbox Live Gold members.

XBLA DLC without Achievements

I'll be honest; I'd given up any hope of this DLC ever appearing. The Steam version of this game has had four DLC expansions, all of which were released by the end of December. Following on from a promise made six months ago, the Xbox LIVE Arcade version of the title finally gets the first two pieces of DLC as a single Expansion Pack bundle. True to form, this DLC has now been removed from the Games Store.

Sanctum 2
• "Sanctum 2 - Expansion Pack" – US$4.99 / £3.99 / €4.99 / AU$6.65

Retail DLC without Achievements

This regional variant of the title is playing catch-up with DLC that was released in other regions on February 4th and 5th. If you don't live in the Australian region, there's nothing for you to see here.

Saints Row IV (AU)
• "Bling Bling Pack" – AU$3.95
We’re bringing bling back to the Row with this set of money-themed superpowers. In these hard financial times, what better way to boost the economy than to power your buff to shake down enemies, turn your foes into gold with the Midas touch, make it rain with stomp, or blast people in the face with some dollar-dollar bills, yo. Strap this on and shake that moneymaker!
• "College Daze" – AU$3.95
Go Greek with a set of fratboy and sorority girl outfits, and be the life of the party with not one but two classic college traditions: the beer helmet and a bra hat. Also includes Shayne's Barstool Racer.
• "Game On" – FREE
Whether on the ice or on the green, a Saint always knows how to look good. The Game On Pack includes a hockey mask, goalie gear, and a hockey stick. Also includes a golf cap, set of fairway formal duds, and an iron. Lastly, be sure to ride around on the Puck Truck!
• "GameStop Warped Weapon Challenge" – AU$1.35
The winner of the GameStop Warped Weapon Challenge, 'The Polarizer', is a powerful magnet gun capable of magnetizing people, attracting them to your Polarizer weapon, and then reversing its polarity to create an explosion of people!
• "Reverse Cosplay Pack" – FREE
Become the Avatar of the Saints Row Community with the Reverse Cosplay Pack. Chosen from the best of our fans' entries to our Reverse Cosplay contest, two outfits were handpicked and turned into in-game outfits!
• "Voyeur Pack VI" – FREE
This free pack will help keep your co-op game rolling if your partner has downloaded additional DLC content. This free pack does not allow you to have access to use any DLC content, but allows for full compatibility in a co-operative game. Also, as a thank you for your support of Saints Row IV, please accept this outfit pack which is included for free.

Microsoft doesn't seem to want to advertise this one much so you'll have to search for it a bit. Previously only available to those who had purchased Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate HD or the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Collection, the demo now becomes available to all.
