It appears that it is compulsory to download this DLC if you want to keep playing this game over Xbox Live. If you have not downloaded this DLC, when you try to connect to a Live match, the game displays a message stating that the free DLC has been released and that you need to download the DLC before you can play. The message appears for both Crossfire and Blitz modes over Live. Local gameplay does not seem to be affected.Original Story:
