XBL Content Roundup: September 30th, 2015

By Rebecca Smith, 1 year ago
Not only are we bringing you the new content this week, we're also looking for opinions. Due to attending EGX, last week's roundups didn't happen. This week, to allow us to catch up easily, I've included pre-orders, new games and DLC with achievements that has been released since September 19th. However, I've left off the DLC that doesn't add new achievements. Is this something that you wish to see still, or do you want us to stick to the content that only involves new achievements? If the latter is the case, do you still want to see the demos and betas? As usual, all opinions are welcome in the thread below.
