XBL Content Roundup: November 13th & 14th, 2014

By Rebecca Smith, 2 years ago
Yet again, we'll make a start with the bad news. This week's XBLA victim is All Zombies Must Die!, which has been removed from the Games Store without warning. While we're unsure as to the reason for this, we'll assume that it is because of an expired licence. Meanwhile, FIFA 15 has sounded the death knell for FIFA 14 (Win 8) and FIFA 14 (WP), neither of which are available for download anymore either.
