PLAY AT HOME. Sony is giving away free games this year again


Sony says Play At Home will run from March until June 2021

Sony’s Play At Home initiative returns this year, once again looking to encourage people to stay home with free PlayStation games as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

Ratchet & Clank for the PS4 is the first game on offer this year, with the initiative extending to June. The game has been available for download for free since March 2, 12 pm, Philippine time. No other titles have been announced as of publication, with Sony saying that there will be “a great mix of games and entertainment.”

Ratchet & Clank is also available as part of the PlayStation Plus Collection meant for PS5 players, requiring a PlayStation Plus subscription to download and play. The new offer won’t require a subscription, and will be part of the player’s library once downloaded.

Play At Home, in partnership with anime subscription service Funimation, will also offer “extended access for new subscribers to Funimation or Wakanim in the countries they are available” starting on March 25. Wakanim is Funimation’s European division. Funimation is currently limited to users in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand, while Wakanim is available in most of Western and Northern Europe.

In 2020, Play At Home’s offerings included Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey for free. –
