Tuesday XBL Content Roundup: November 5th, 2013

By Rebecca Smith, 3 years ago
Activision and Infinity Ward's first-person shooter is taking the top billing in this week's retail releases with a simultaneous worldwide release. This is notable because it is also the first time that I have ever seen a game release simultaneously on Games on Demand and at retailers. Accompanying it is DLC releases for four Xbox 360 retail games. None of the games adds extra achievements to their list but two games do have region exclusive DLC.
