DLC without Achievements

Grand Theft Auto V (Xbox 360)
• "The Ill-Gotten Gains Update Part 2" – FREE
A love of the finer things is one of the few ways a career criminal can celebrate success – something the high-end retailers of Rockford Hills and beyond know all too well. With an outbreak of Heists hitting the city recently, merchants have rushed to re-stock their shelves and showrooms with exotic collectables to accommodate Los Santos’ new class of heavily armed and upwardly mobile professionals. Part 2 of The Ill-Gotten Gains Update delivers desirable new vehicles, unforgiving new weapons and clothes to make you stand out in a crowd. For the unconventional, the Coil Brawler is a luxury sports-styled off-roader with raised suspension and a 400 horsepower engine that will muscle its way over any terrain. If top speed is what matters most, the Progen T20 is among the fastest cars to ever arrive in Los Santos, while the Dinka Vindicator motorcycle adds agility and speed, featuring a kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) that stores energy from braking and delivers a burst of speed on activation. For a level of refinement that only dirty money can buy, the Lampadati Toro screams sophistication – a speedboat crafted with the finest timber from protected rainforests, six-inch lacquer finishing and twin v12 engines. Meanwhile, a range of exotic weaponry hits Ammu-Nation with the wood-finished Marksman Pistol, a single-shot weapon with more stopping power than a pump action shotgun, or the slightly more personal, solid gold Knuckle Dusters. For those who prefer to wear their status as conspicuous consumers, the iFruit Snap Watch adds a hint of tech savvy to your wrist, or opt for a more classically opulent timepiece with the Medici Radial or Covgari Universe – all available at retailers across Los Santos alongside a massive selection of new apparel and jewelry for men and women. In other news, the Ill-Gotten Gains Update Part 2 brings the debut of a new radio station, The Lab on all four console versions of GTAV. Hosted by Dr. No and the Chemical Bro., The Lab features all new tracks created by The Alchemist and Oh No and inspired by their work on the original score for GTAV, with featuring guest appearances from Killer Mike, Little Dragon, Earl Sweatshirt, Phantogram, Freddie Gibbs and more.

Delistings

We haven't got any new releases this week, but we do, unfortunately, have one title that has been removed from the Games store. Other Ocean Interactive's Monsters Love Candy (Win 8) has disappeared and is no longer published. We're unsure of the reason why it has been removed.
