XBL Content Roundup: March 7th, 2014 [UPDATE]

By Rebecca Smith, 2 years ago
Edit: We have a late arrival joining us in the Windows 8 category too. Check out the details below.

Original Story

The week ends with a few random pieces of DLC and another new Windows Phone title. This may be becoming a habit for Microsoft. Before we get started, I just want to mention that Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures is now available on Games on Demand in all regions. While the game was released in North America on November 8th and in Australia on November 26th, it didn't reach Europe until today. You can download it for US$39.99 / £34.99 / €49.99 / AU$69.95; head here for further details.

DLC without Achievements

This list includes DLC for one Xbox LIVE Arcade title and two Xbox 360 retail titles. As one of these titles is also available on the Xbox One, the DLC has been released on this platform, too. None of the Xbox One additional content is listed on Xbox.com, so we're unable to provide download links; the content must be downloaded through the Xbox One console. All of the price links below lead to the Xbox 360 version of the DLC.

Windows Phone Games

Although the base game is free-to-play, the title does offer optional in-app purchases. Those without a Windows Phone should instead check out the game's Windows 8 equivalent.
