Amid the COVID-19, most people in the world are confined to their homes. Many people are working from home, while kids are spending time playing online games and watching online videos to beat the boredom. So, if you are stuck with nothing to do and want to have some fun playing games, you are in luck! Sony, the popular multinational conglomerate involved in professional electronics, gaming and more, is giving away free PS4 games to help people have some fun during the lockdown. Sony is calling it the ‘Play at home’ initiative.
The company officially announced that they will be releasing free games as a gesture of their support to all the people around the world doing their part staying indoors to reduce the spread of the dangerous Coronavirus. The company even mentioned that they are deeply grateful to everyone taking responsibility and maintaining social distancing to curb the virus spread. The company, being a key player in the home entertainment space, is asking the community of Sony’s product users and people to support the safe choice of staying at home and also playing at home.
The Play At Home initiative, as the company mentioned, has two major objectives. The first one is giving away free PS4 games to keep the PlayStation community base happy and entertained playing at home. The other major objective is to establish a fund to help out smaller, independent game studios greatly suffering from financial problems during this pandemic period so that they can continue creating amazing gaming experiences for all gamers out there.
Sony will be offering the popular games such as Journey and Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection for free to gamers. All PS4 owners can download Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey, completely free of charge, till May 6th, 2020. If you are in China or Germany, instead of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, its Knack II and Journey. Once you have downloaded it, it’s yours, free to play forever!
That’s not all, Sony will also be helping out the independent partners, with the $10m the company has set aside for the same.
