High-profile PS4 indies, PlayStation VR gems, and Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition will be free on the PlayStation Store
[Update: Today (April 22) is the last day to get nine free PS4 games from Play at Home 2021. So long as you show up and claim them from the PlayStation Store by 8:00 p.m. Pacific, they’re yours to keep — no subscription needed. PlayStation VR owners, in particular, shouldn’t sleep on this deal.]
We had heard that more free-to-keep PS4 games were coming soon from Sony after the Ratchet & Clank giveaway, but I can’t say I was expecting 10 more titles to show up for the Play at Home promo. It’s not just about quantity, either – these are all quality releases.
You’ll be able to grab nine games from March 25 at 8:00 p.m. Pacific until April 22 at 8:00 p.m.
- Enter the Gungeon
- Rez Infinite (PlayStation VR optional)
- The Witness
- Astro Bot Rescue Mission (PlayStation VR)
- Moss (PlayStation VR)
- Thumper (PlayStation VR optional)
- Paper Beast (PlayStation VR)
Sony is also kicking in one of its own: Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition. You can add the robo-dino-hunting adventure to your PS4 library for free from April 19 at 8:00 p.m. Pacific until May 14.
Unlike the usual monthly “free games,” you do not need PlayStation Plus for any of these.
Play at Home 2021 also has an “extended” 90-day trial for Funimation/Wakanim. If you’re a new member and you want to go on an anime binge to end all binges, you have from March 25 to April 22 to take them up on the offer. I’ll leave recommendations to the readers – they know what’s good.
To give you a little bit more context on how much I like the games on this list, I own everything here except for Paper Beast – and the only reason it’s on my yet-to-play list is that I’ve been on a VR break lately. Subnautica is one of my all-time favorites, Astro Bot is PSVR at its best, and Horizon Zero Dawn is a crowd-pleaser. I’m envious of anyone about to carve through these games for the first time.
