Sony Offering 10 PS4 Games, Including Horizon Zero Dawn, for Free
Sony will add 10 additional games to its Play at Home program, including Horizon: Zero Dawn, in the coming weeks.
The first nine games will be available for free to own and download starting next week on March 25. Those games are: Abzu, The Witness, Enter the Gungeon, Subnautica, Rez Infinite, Moss, Astro Bot: Rescue Mission, Paper Beast, and Thumper. Then, starting April 19, Horizon: Zero Dawn Complete Edition will be available to download for free. The first nine games will be available for free to download until April 22 and Horizon: Zero Dawn will be available until May 14.
Rez Infinite is PSVR compatible as is Thumper, but Astro Bot: Rescue Mission, Moss, and Paper Beast require PSVR. Players will still be able to download these PSVR-exclusive games even if they don’t own a PSVR headset — they just won’t be able to actually play them.
While Sony’s Play at Home is a worldwide initiative, it’s important to note that Subnautica, The Witness, Abzu, Rez Infinite, Moss, Thumper, and Paper Beast will not be available to download in China. Enter the Gungeon won’t be available in China either, nor will it be available in Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, and Thailand.
Alongside these 10 games, Sony is offering up an extended trial of Funimation.
“Don’t forget: in participating countries, we’re also offering an extended trial of Funimation (or Wakanim, depending on region), a joint venture of Sony Pictures Entertainment and Aniplex of Japan,” the announcement from Sony reads. “The anime-focused subscription service includes shows such as My Hero Academia, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Attack on Titan, and Fruits Basket.”
The extended Funimation trial begins on March 25 and ends on April 22. Sony’s announcement says it will have more Stay at Home information to share soon.
Earlier this month, Sony made 2016’s Ratchet & Clank available to download for free as part of Stay at Home and last year, it did the same with Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey.
