GODFALL: CHALLENGER EDITION Labelled Scummy & Misleading By PlayStation Plus Subscribers

Godfall: Challenger Edition and Mortal Shell are available as part of this month's PlayStation Plus lineup but they haven't gone down well with subscribers. Hit the jump...

Those who are subscribed to, the premium service, PlayStation Plus are entitled to a couple of free games each and every month for no additional cost. As we covered earlier, this month's free selection of games includes LEGO DC Super-Villains, Mortal Shell, and Godfall: Challenger Edition — as well as a couple of PlayStation VR games. The former of those three is the only one that has been received wholly well as backlash has erupted over the other two, particularly the latter.

Godfall: Challenger Edition is a new edition of the online role-playing game. It's a version of the game that doesn't include the game's story mode, nor the 'Fire and Darkness' expansion. Instead, Godfall: Challenger Edition takes players straight to the endgame with an endgame-tier build. This detail wasn't properly disclosed prior to its release; most were under the impression that they were getting the full game — as is standard for the monthly PlayStation Plus lineups.

Naturally, reactions to this surprise haven't been positive. Many have labelled this move scummy, misleading and many more choice words. Players are describing it as akin to a demo or trial version of the game and, what's worse, this version of the game will be made available as a standalone product for $15. Essentially, arguably, making it a demo that you would have to pay for.

Counterplay Games, the developer of Godfall, has doubled down on their decision, though, and argue that it's not a demo or trial as many have described it (via Eurogamer).

That's not all, though, Mortal Shell is also under a bit of scrutiny — but nowhere near as much as that of Godfall. It was advertised that players would be able to upgrade Mortal Shell to the PlayStation 5 for no additional cost but it turns out that isn't the case. Mortal Shell is exclusively available to PlayStation Plus subscribers on PlayStation 4. The game can be upgraded to the current generation, though it'll cost you $29.99 for the PlayStation 5 version.

All in all, it seemed that we had a promising PlayStation Plus month on our hands; apparently not. What do you think of the controversy? Do you agree with the first twelve words of this article or do subscribers have a right to complain?
