Friday XBL Content Roundup: November 1st, 2013

By Rebecca Smith, 3 years ago
Normally, the majority of XBL content would be released on a Tuesday or a Wednesday. However, over the last week and this week, Wednesdays have been really quiet. Instead, we've had a lot of content released on Friday. Today brings region exclusive DLC for two retail games, neither of which get new achievements. There is one new Xbox LIVE Arcade title to make up for the lack of releases on Wednesday. Finally, we have four Games on Demand, although one of those is also region exclusive. Here's the list:
