XBL Content Roundup: October 22nd, 2013

By Rebecca Smith, 3 years ago
We've decided to give our weekly articles a bit of a shake up and, as a result, there will be some new roundups taking the place of older articles this week. Instead of having several DLC and demo articles, we are rolling them all together into this new roundup. New Games on Demand will also be making their debut appearance. Tomorrow will see a similar roundup for the new XBLA content. Take a look and tell us what you think.

We have DLC releases for six Xbox 360 retail games this week. Two of the games add extra achievements to their list and four of the games have region exclusive DLC. There is also a new Game on Demand but we don't have any new demos.
