Tuesday XBL Content Roundup: December 17th, 2013

By Rebecca Smith, 3 years ago
There may not be any retail releases for this week but that doesn't stop new DLC content from being released. We have DLC for nine Xbox 360 retail titles, two of which get extra achievements. One of the games has DLC that is region exclusive as the game has not yet been released outside of Japan. There are two demos, one to drum up custom for a title currently at retailers and the other to build anticipation for an upcoming title. The latter is region exclusive until tomorrow, where it will be released in regions outside of North America. Finally, we have one new Game on Demand.
