Hood: Outlaws & Legends causes displeasure in the community
Hood: Outlaws & Legends is the PS Plus game for which Sony may pick up most of the criticism this month. In a reddit thread for dissatisfied users, it is titled “Further Totes Multiplayer Game”.
Hood: Outlaws & Legends did not feel well in the Hood test and only reached a test rating of 64 points.

The complaints go far beyond Hood: Outlaws & Legends . Negative voices are available every month, but at the moment the mood seems very irritated. “Why am I still paying for this service?”, Asks a user. “As soon as the new PS plus is there, I consider very good if I renew my subscription,” another.

Is the restructuring blaming at the relatively weak PS plus-lineup?
A reddit user fears that the “Essential Level” of the new PS Plus, which in principle corresponds to the current subscription, will “qualitatively go the way of Games With Gold”. Since Microsoft has been celebrating great success with the Game Pass, the “free” play for the Xbox Live subscription is almost only small and unknown titles. That’s exactly what we could expect at PS plus, so the fear of some fans. After all, Sony has an interest that we subscribe to the higher levels.
