Jim Ryan, the Pres­i­dent and CEO of Sony, announced a new ini­tia­tive today titled Play At Home. Right now, they are offer­ing free games to help the PlaySta­tion com­mu­ni­ty con­tin­ue to be enter­tained while they’re stuck at home.

Sony is Giving Away Two Games As a Thanks to Those Practicing Social Distancing

From April 15th to May 5th, PlaySta­tion own­ers can claim Unchart­ed: The Nathan Drake Col­lec­tion and Jour­ney, for free. This is to thank all this who are prac­tic­ing the nec­es­sary social dis­tanc­ing by stay­ing home. In Ger­many and Chi­na, Unchart­ed: The Nathan Drake Col­lec­tion will be replaced by Knack 2.

Ryan stat­ed that Play At Home has two com­po­nents: pro­vid­ing free games and estab­lish­ing a fund to help small­er inde­pen­dent game stu­dios who may be expe­ri­enc­ing finan­cial dif­fi­cul­ties dur­ing the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic.

The free games appear to be the only free titles they’ll be giv­ing away, both were fea­tured as free games for PlaySta­tion Plus mem­bers a while back. It was not spec­i­fied if there would be more titles made free lat­er on, but if the pan­dem­ic keeps going it will be more than like­ly.

On the fund­ing front, Ryan shared they’ve “embarked $10 mil­lion” to sup­port their inde­pen­dent devel­op­ment part­ners. More infor­ma­tion about the fund will be avail­able soon.
