Last April, Sony offered four free games to PlayStation 4 users as part of their “Play At Home” program — ostensibly as a way to keep people at home and entertained as the COVID-19 pandemic ramped up. Even though things are looking a little brighter on that front, Sony is bringing back the program in 2021, offering free games and more over the coming months.
The 2021 Play At Home campaign will see multiple free releases for PlayStation fans from March through June. Starting March 1 and running through to the end of the month, the PS4 version of Ratchet & Clank will be free on the PlayStation Store to download and keep forever. Released in 2016 by Insomniac Games, Ratchet & Clank was a re-imagining of the series’ first entry, which launched on the PlayStation 2 in 2002. The next game in the series, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, is scheduled to launch on June 11 for the PlayStation 5.
In addition, on March 25, you’ll be able to enjoy an extended new subscriber trial for anime streaming platform Funimation — for the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand — or its equivalent in most of Western and Northern Europe, Wakanim. The 14-day free trial for both services will be extended for an additional 90 days. This offer will be available for a limited time, with more details to follow.
Learn more about both free offers in this year’s version of the Sony Play At Home Initiative via the announcement on the PlayStation website.
