Four months of offers for PlayStation games and entertainment begin March 1 – PlayStation.Blog


Hello again! The past 12 months have not been easy. And I think we all hope that at the end of this long COVID-19 tunnel, thanks to the tireless work of the medical community and people around the world, we can see flashes of light.

In those historic times, the PlayStation team wanted to thank the community by giving something back. Today we all could use something to look forward to and another reason to stay safely socially aloof. That’s why we’re excited to offer a free selection of great games and some entertainment.

Last April we did the Play At Home Initiativeand offers two incredible PlayStation games for free: Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey *. I like to think that they helped make the year a little easier.

This year we wanted to go further. So we’ve created a range of free games and entertainment for our PlayStation community to make the next few months a little more fun and entertaining.

This year’s Play at Home initiative starts in March and lasts until June.
