President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, Jim Ryan, announced in a recent PlayStation blog post that the Play at Home program is up and running again. As a result, Sony is offering ten free Playstation games for users to keep throughout the Spring. Titles include the 2017 game of the year winner Horizon Zero Dawn, free to download between 19 April and 14 May.
PlayStation Play at Home first launched last year as Sony’s way to give back to the community during the COVID-19 pandemic. As the pandemic is still occurring, it appears that Sony feels it's only right to continue the initiative.
Last year, players were able to acquire Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey, and since the 31st of March, Ratchet & Clank has been offered free through 31 March 2021 for PS4/PS5.
Play at Home games lineup
The next set of games will be available come 25 March, offering a range of Indie titles, including fan favourites:
- Enter the Gungeon
- Rez Infinite
- The Witness
- Astro Bot Rescue Mission (VR)
- Moss (VR)
- Thumper (VR)
- Paper Beast (VR)
- Horizon: Zero Dawn
Additionally, Sony offers an extended trial of Funimation (or Wakanim), a joint venture between Sony and Aniplex of Japan - an anime-focused subscription service that will kick off 25 March through till 22 April.
To download the games, you just need to visit their store pages on the PlayStation Store and hit download. What’s great is that you do not need a PlayStation Plus membership to make the most of the Play at Home program.
