PlayStation has given an update, indicating that it may release more game titles for the “Play at Home” program. Indeed, this is good news for PS4 and PS VR gamers.

PlayStation and free games

PlayStation has announced that it has an update which will come soon to the community. Many suspect it to be the arrival of much more game titles to PS4 under the Play at Home program.

Play at Home program is an initiative introduced by the console maker to encourage gamers to stay home. During this pandemic, gaming is one of the few industries which had massive growth.

This initiative by Sony has garnered an excellent response from gamers. This has also helped PS4 gamers to pass the time with their console till they buy a new one.

This Play at Home program started in March with ten free game titles, included first-party titles such as Astro Bot Rescue Mission, Ratchet, and Clank.

It also had some of the smash indie titles, such as The Witness. This program excited the players when it included the acclaimed survival title Subnautica.

Blog post and new update

A PlayStation blog post published on April 19 announced the release of Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition’s download. The game is now available to download from April 19 8:00pm PT / April 20 04:00 BST / 05:00 CEST and May 14 8:00pm Pacific Time / May 15 04:00 BST / 05:00 CEST.

Sid Shuman, senior director of SIE Content Communications, stated in that post that there is “more to come” regarding Play at Home content. He also asked fans and gamers to stay tuned for future Play at Home updates.

The games offered earlier in this program are available for free download until April 22, 8:00 pm PT / April 23 04:00 BST / 05:00 CEST.

Other services of Sony

Sony also highlighted the Funimation (Wakanim), an anime-based subscription service, and it is a joint venture of Sony pictures entertainment and Aniplex.

This subscription service concentrates on My Hero Academia, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Attack on Titan, and Fruits Basket. These titles are available to consumers by an extended trial available till April 22, 2021.

Fans and critics have been unable to guess the next announcement for the Play at Home program. This is because the titles released till now are much diverse. So, there is no solid guess whether it will be a first-party title or an indie release.

But, some have guessed that it will be an indie title to highlight the excellent work of such developers.

Sony recently created ripples in the gaming community with an announcement. The company pledged $10 million for creative funding. Jim Ryan, the CEO and the president of Sony Interactive Entertainment, said that this funding would support indie developers. He also stated that they are “vital to the heart and soul of the gaming community.”
