XBL Content Roundup: January 28th, 2014

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
Now that the new releases are starting to creep into retailers, expect new DLC, Games on Demand and demos to follow. For this week we get new DLC with new achievements for an Xbox 360 title. The DLC will also have been released on the Xbox One, but we are currently unable to report on Xbox One DLC or demos in this article as they are currently only available to download through the Xbox One console. Until Microsoft sees fit to integrate this content into Xbox.com, this will not change any time soon.

In addition to this, we also have DLC without achievements for two more Xbox 360 titles. The DLC for one of those titles is region restricted, as is the lone Game on Demand that makes it to the Xbox LIVE Game Store. There are no new demos today.

Retail DLC with Achievements

Call of Duty: Ghosts (Xbox 360)
• "Call of Duty®: Ghosts - Onslaught"
Achievements: 11 for an additional 250G
Price: US$14.99 / £11.59 / €14.49 / AU$19.95 / ¥1500
Season Pass owners should NOT purchase here and instead download in-game. Welcome to Call of Duty®: Ghosts Onslaught, the first downloadable content pack for Call of Duty®: Ghosts, delivering four unique multiplayer maps, each with their own distinct environments, size, and gameplay variety; and a deadly new addition to your arsenal with the Maverick, a dual-purpose Assault Rifle/Sniper Rifle. Anchoring this first content pack is Episode 1: Nightfall, the first installment in Extinction’s four-part episodic narrative, where a small team has been tasked with retrieving valuable intel from a remote facility in the Alaskan wilderness. Episode 1: Nightfall features two all-new species of aliens and an exclusive weapon.
