PS4: two free games with the “Play at home” initiative
Play free PS4? Yes with Sony Play at Home! Announced on Tuesday, it is the new initiative that will offer all PlayStation 4 users some free games to alleviate the period of forced imprisonment and social distancing due to the coronavirus. Because being stuck in the house sucks a little less when you have video games!
There are two free PS4 games, but actually 4
Starting from 15 April, it will be possible to download two titles for free. One of the two is Uncharted: the collection of Nathan Drake, and will be available in almost every PlayStation Store around the world except for China and Germany (which will find Knack 2 in its place). This title, however, is valid for three: the famous action adventure in question is a collection of all the titles released so far, in fact we will find inside it Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. We will follow the adventures of the neo-Indiana Jones in search of treasures through cultural sites from around the world. Each of the titles in the collection has an average playing time of at least 10 hours.
In addition to Uncharted we will find in free digital download too Journey, a 2012 title that made online multiplayer its strength, but which was much appreciated and could still give emotions today. To download the two titles you will have until 5th of May, but once done they will remain yours forever. If you want to discover the games on offer at PS Plus of Aprilclick here.
Sony Play at Home
The president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, Jim Ryan, announced the arrival of this useful initiative with a nice message for gamers, but also for developers who will be financially supported by Sony itself. Here is the message:
“People around the world are doing the right thing by staying home to help contain the spread of COVID-19. We are very grateful to all who observe the physical distancing obligation and take our responsibility as a home entertainment platform seriously; for this, we ask our community to continue to safeguard everyone’s health by playing at home.
To thank all those who are doing their part to reduce the impact of this pandemic, Sony Interactive Entertainment is pleased to announce the Play at Home initiative. Play at Home it consists of two parts: first, to offer free games for the PlayStation community to enjoy at home; and finally, to set up a fund to help smaller independent development studios, which may be in difficult economic conditions and find it impossible to create extraordinary experiences for players. “
