The PlayStation Plus free games for October 2021 were officially confirmed by Sony yesterday afternoon, and subscribers are already having some pretty frank discussions about the service's latest lineup.
In case you missed it, PlayStation 5 users will be able to download World War II shooter Hell Let Loose. PlayStation 4 owners, meanwhile, will get Mortal Kombat X and PGA Tour 2K21.
As always, the PlayStation Plus lineup ended up leaking a few days ahead of the official reveal. I wrote at the time that I thought PlayStation 4 users were getting kind of a rough deal, arguing that a golf game and Mortal Kombat title that isn't even the most recent entry in the series might leave a lot of subscribers ticked off. Turns out I was right.
At the time of writing, the PlayStation Plus subreddit is awash with fans who are particularly annoyed at the inclusion of Mortal Kombat X - for a variety of reasons. It's not that it isn't a great game, to be clear - it definitely is. It's more the fact fans feel they could've had the more recent Mortal Kombat 11, or even the enhanced and expanded Mortal Kombat XL.
"Ridiculous. This game is literally six years old," wrote one user. "Not only that, they gave us standard edition which is a bigger insult! The game is good, is just, they could have given the more complete edition of it."
"Pretty insulting to give us X and not XL when the game is so old and most people who like fighting games would have already bought it or Mortal Kombat 11 by now," added another user before admitting "it could have been worse".
Elsewhere on the subreddit, subscribers are miffed that Mortal Kombat X is already a free game for PlayStation 5 subscribers via the PlayStation Plus Collection, rendering X a relatively unexciting choice. It's worth noting there are still plenty of PlayStation gamers who are on PS4, though.
