PlayStation gamers are about to have a lot to Play at Home with the latest additions to the Sony initiative.
PlayStation announced the latest round of games arriving free to all players as part of their Play at Home Initiative last night.
Play at Home launched last year as an aid to those stuck at home due to the coronavirus pandemic. The initiative has seen titles like Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, and Journey given out to gamers.
The program was relaunched in 2021 earlier this month, and the newest additions act as the second wave of free games. Unlike PS Plus games, players do not need to subscribe to gain access to these new games, and upon downloading, they can be kept forever.
Players will be able to get their hands on nine of the free games on March 25, 2021. Outside of those mentioned, the new additions include Abzû, Enter the Gungeon, Rez Infinite, Subnautica, Moss, Thumper, and Paper Beast. Horizon Zero Dawn will arrive a few weeks later on April 19.
Play at Home will run for another three months, and with the latest lineup fans will be eager to discover what comes next. The addition of Horizon will build momentum for the franchise in the runup to its highly-anticipated sequel, Horizon Forbidden West. Players still have time to get their hands on a digital copy of the last Play at Home addition, Ratchet and Clank, which will remain free until March 31, 2021.
Play at Home is proving to be a welcome program for many gamers, especially as lockdown restriction continue. The latest lineup will ensure that players have plenty of content to work their way through in the coming months. All Play at Home games will be available from next week, on March 25.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
