PlayStation Plus users are urging one another not to download and claim one December's free titles, after discovering that it isn't even the full version of the game.
Yesterday PlayStation confirmed that the three free games for December 2021 would be the Souls-like Mortal Shell, action-adventure LEGO DC Super Villains, and PlayStation 5 launch title Godfall.
Take a look at Godfall in action below:
At first glance, these free games looked like a definite step up from some of the previous offerings. LEGO games are always good fun, and both Mortal Shell and Godfall are the kind of lesser-played titles that make for perfect PS Plus entries.
Unfortunately, it was quickly discovered that the version of Godfall PS Plus subscribers are getting - Godfall: Challenger Edition - isn't the full version of the game. Instead, players will be able to access a handful of endgame content and none of the story.
"The Challenger Edition focuses on three unique modes: Lightbringer, Dreamstones, and the Ascended Tower of Trials," a post on the PlayStation Blog explains. "All three are endgame-level content..Godfall: Challenger Edition players can upgrade at any time to the Deluxe Edition gaining access to both Godfall and Fire & Darkness campaigns."
Predictably, this has not gone down well. At the time of writing, the PlayStation and PlayStation Plus subreddits are filled with outraged gamers who can't quite believe one of their monthly free games is technically a demo.
"Don’t download it, don’t even add it to your library," urged one user. "Sony needs to know how terrible it is that they included a glorified demo as the headline PS Plus game for the month. It’s one thing to include a game that people consider bad, it’s another thing to include an incomplete experience and think it’s ok."
"The fact that they had the nerve to have a DEMO of a game included in PS Plus is shocking to say the least," added another. "We should fight this bullsh*t by not even adding this garbage to our libraries, otherwise they might get the idea that this sh*t is passable and do it in the future."
While PlayStation rarely responds to feedback on the monthly PS Plus lineup, it has changed games at the last minute before. Given the incredible backlash this announcement has generated, December 2021 could be one of those times. Watch this space.
