Just wondering-
If my family from the USA sends me a game, I know that it will work on my console, but will the dlc or add on content work? For instance say I get Titanfall from the states. Will I be able to buy the season pass here, and not get any errors?
Thanks for the help!

You should be fine for this if buying said addon or dlc in NZ.  Some DLC codes are locked for certain regions or even games can be in certain ways (eg Diablo 3 of bought from certain overseas retailers would see you locked into that regions store) but if you buy the extras here there should be no reason it won't work. So better to buy that content here than bringing it in from overseas as it's possible the codes may not work.

I thought DLC was restricted to the game region if region locked?

Pretty sure the XB1 is region free therefore DLC bought here for a game bought internationally for a XB1 would be fine (which is the OP's question).  My example was actually referring to a PC game sorry possibly not the best example but was useful (I thought) as evidence that games / content can be locked in some ways.

Xbox One games and DLC are region free. I have mixed and matched digital/physical games from NZ or US and DLC from another country and it has worked without any issues.




Do whatever you want to do man.

This is good to know! Thanks-
Also will be good for getting games a lot cheaper. I just can't see paying $128 NZ for Shadows of Mordor, when you can get the same game from Amazon.com for $70 including the shipping.

billgates: Buy it digital from the US Xbox store for USD$60.


Do we have to change the region to do this?

if so how can you have mixed match digital downloads from US/NZ?

You would need a US address for that right? All my info is NZ based. As long as I can get add ons and dlc from here, I am good!

You have 2 ways to download/purchase US content in NZ.

1. Go to www.xbox.com and migrate your NZ account region to US. That way all your purchases when the region on console is set to US or buying anything MS relates from other their online services will result in cheaper US pricing for the said product. You can only migrate your account once every 3 months to another region. Read the warnings that go with this as any current unused account balance etc in NZ account will be lost when you move to US. Your current digital licenses for games and DLC however retain. Use your YouShop US address for billing info etc.

2. Just switch your console's region to US and use YouShop's US address for billing in USD$.

2nd might be the best and easiest option for you.
