Horizon Zero Dawn And More Are Free In ‘Play At Home’ Initiative

PlayStation is continuing their generous Play At Home Initiative with a whole slew of free games and anime subscription services players can claim up until May!

When the pandemic first hit, PlayStation came to the rescue of many with the announcement they would be offering Journey and Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection entirely for free. Well, to cap off what is hopefully the latter part of this pandemic, PlayStation is offering not one, not two, but 10 games entirely for free. On top of that, they’re also offering an extended free trial to two anime-focused subscription services! Does their generosity know no bounds? They started 2021’s ‘Play at Home’ initiative with a free copy of 2016’s Ratchet & Clank, which you can still claim up until March 31st, 8pm PDT/ April 1st, 4am BST/5am CEST.
