Tuesday XBL Content Roundup: October 29th, 2013

By Rebecca Smith, 3 years ago
As far as Tuesdays go, this is a fairly quiet day. This time last year involved over ten games' worth of DLC. The stream of new content has definitely abated in the run-up to the release of the next generation of consoles.

We have DLC releases for five Xbox 360 retail games this week. One of the games adds extra achievements to its list and one of the games does have region exclusive DLC. We have no new Games on Demand, but we do have a demo for a game that was released back in May.
