Xbox One DLC without Achievements

There was new DLC for Battlefield 4 (Xbox One) and Need for Speed Rivals (Xbox One), all of which is detailed above for the Xbox 360. As none of this content is listed on Xbox.com, we're unable to provide links. While I can't provide links for the following content, at least I can provide pricing:

Forza Motorsport 5

Road America in Forza 5 will feature the main four-mile, 14-turn main circuit. For the first time in a Forza Motorsport, Road America will also feature four alternate ribbons that will test the limits of each player’s skill. In addition, the circuit has been integrated throughout the Career in Forza Motorsport 5. Players will be able to take part in races on the circuit in both the main Career events as well as Career bonus events which are available after a Mini-Career series is complete. In celebration of the track’s launch, players will also find new Road America-themed events in Rivals Mode and in the multiplayer lobbies.
