Free PS4 games, at least temporarily: Playstation president and CEO Jim Ryan have decided to continue the Play At Home initiative that last April gave “Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection” and “Journey” to Sony console users. The announcement was made by Ryan himself in a statement released on the official Playstation blog.
“These days, we all need something to distract ourselves with and another good reason to keep a social distance. So we are happy to offer you a free selection of fantastic games and entertainment deals. Last April we launched the Play at Home initiative, with which we offered two great Playstation games for free. I like to think that they helped make this difficult time more enjoyable. This year we wanted to go further, to make the next few months a bit more enjoyable”.
The first free Play Station 4 game is “Ratchet and Clank”
From March 2 until April 1, you can download “Ratchet & Clank” for PS4 for free on Playstation Store. Once redeemed, the game will remain the user’s forever. From March 25, extended access for new subscribers to “Funimation” or “Wakanim” depending on the country in which they are available. In the coming weeks, other games will also be announced and will be available for free on the Playstation Store in April, May, and June.
The “Plat At Home” initiative
Since last April Sony has launched Play at Home with which you can download games for free. The goal is to make users play at home avoiding the spread of the virus but above all to set up a fund to help smaller independent development studies, allocating $10 million to help internal partners.
What do you think about this initiative launched by Play Station? Are you going to download “Ratchet and Clank”, and by doing so helping smaller development studies?
