Jim Ryan, President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, unveiled the Play at Home initiative on Tuesday morning. The project not only offers gamers entertainment during the mandatory quarantine. It will also provide financial support to independent game studios hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic.
As part of the Play at Home initiative, PS4 players can download Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. This contains three games, namely Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. They also get the indie adventure title Journey for free. Unlike the free PS4 games that Sony gives away to its PlayStation Plus subscribers every month, you don't have to pay for a subscription here. However, these two games will be added to your account.
Free games like this provide needed entertainment during quarantine
Germany and China get other PS4 games from Sony
Unfortunately, players in Germany and China will not have access to the Uncharted Collection. Instead, users in these two countries will receive free digital copies of the action game Knack 2.
You will no doubt find that the games may take longer than usual to download. Sony has reduced the download speed of PS4 games worldwide. This was necessary due to the increasing use of the internet.
Knack 2 is a beautiful action game from 2022
