Friday XBL Content Roundup: December 13th, 2013

By Rebecca Smith, 3 years ago
We continue this week without a new Xbox LIVE Arcade release after Microsoft's predicted release date for Rekoil: Liberator turned out not to be true. However, Spartacus Legends (and its DLC) seems to have been relisted, giving the appearance of a new game. The World of Tanks beta makes another appearance, although this is still in Games on Demand as opposed to the demo section. This time though, the beta is open to all Xbox LIVE members and not just those with a Gold membership. Finally, we have DLC for two retail titles. One of those titles gets new achievements, but unfortunately the title is also region restricted.

One new Multiplayer map: Fragenstein, playable in various Multiplayer modes. New enemies: Russian, American, and German Zombie Soldiers as well as their tanks!
