Sony are giving away free PS4 games to help us ‘Play At Home’ during the lockdown

Sony are giving away free games so you can play at home.

Everyone is stuck at home at the moment and that will quite obviously lead to boredom.

Fortunately, Sony have put forward a great idea to ease up on it a little bit with their 'Play At Home Initiative'.

The tech giant announced this week that they will be releasing free games in support of everyone doing their part during the pandemic.

Sony outlined their commitment in a press release.

"People all over the world are doing the right thing by staying home to help contain the spread of COVID-19," they wrote on playstationblog.com.

"We are deeply grateful to everyone practicing physical distancing and take our responsibility as a home entertainment platform seriously, so we are asking our community to continue supporting the safe choice and the need to Play At Home.

"As a thank you to all who are doing their part to lessen the impact of this pandemic, Sony Interactive Entertainment is pleased to announce the Play At Home initiative.

"Play At Home has two components: First, providing free games to help keep the PlayStation community entertained at home; and finally, establishing a fund to help smaller independent game studios who may be experiencing financial difficulties continue building great experiences for all gamers."

Sony will give away Journey and Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.

So until Wednesday, May 6th, PS4 owners can download Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey completely free of charge (unless you're in Germany or China, in which case you get Knack II and Journey).

And once you do, they're yours to keep forever - no catch, just free games.

While this is two downloads, it's technically four games as Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection contains remastered versions of all three original Uncharted games from the PS3.

This isn't all from Sony, either, as they've also earmarked $10m for the independent partners, in order to help them through all this.
