As well as the following content, Titanfall (Xbox One) has received Title Update 4 today. The update adds 12 new achievements for a total of 200G, but you'll need the previously-released "Expedition" DLC to be able to earn them.

Xbox One Games

Another ID@Xbox game lands today, making a total of three ID@Xbox games for this week (four if you live in North America). This game has been available on Xbox LIVE Arcade for seven months, but developer Compulsion Games wants to assure Xbox One owners that the wait was worth it as this is "the tightest version of the game we’ve made, and has had the advantage of the improvements that we’ve made since the initial launch of the game and the power of the Xbox One".
