PlayStation Is Gifting Everyone Another Major Exclusive

Sony has announced that it's making 10 more games available to players as part of its Play At Home program, including the award-winning RPG game Horizon: Zero Dawn – Complete Edition. The game was already available on PlayStation Now, but the Play At Home initiative is set to be a much sweeter deal. Starting next month, players will be able to snag the award-winning title for absolutely free, without having to sign up for PlayStation Now or PS Plus.


The Play At Home program was created as a free way for PlayStation users to play new games while also encouraging players to stay home in the midst of the pandemic. This year, the program kicked off with Ratchet & Clank. Horizon: Zero Dawn makes for an excellent addition to the lineup.

Horizon: Zero Dawn is scheduled to be available for free from April 19, 2021 to May 15, 2021. For those who haven't experienced the game, this will be a great opportunity to experience the story of Aloy before the release of the sequel, Horizon: Forbidden West. In the meantime, Ratchet & Clank will be free until March 31, 2021. 

Jim Ryan, President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, announced that nine other games are coming to Play At Home on March 25, 2021. "PlayStation and some of our favorite indie partners are collaborating to provide more free games to explore while you're staying safe and staying home," wrote Ryan. 


These other titles include Subnautica, Moss, Paper Beast, and Enter the Gungeon — a lineup that includes several genres of games for every kind of player. It was also announced that players will get an extended free trial of Funimation (or Wakanim, depending on location).

The critically-acclaimed game Horizon: Zero Dawn received an 89 Metacritic score, and it was ranked as the fourth best PS4 game in 2017. It'll take you about 22 hours to complete the main story of the game. However, there's basically double that time in extra content with the Complete Edition, so you'll have plenty to do come April 19.

Sony isn't the first group to offer free games. The Epic Games Store offers plenty of free PC titles and Xbox Game Pass has kept people plenty busy over the past several months indoors. With major titles like Horizon: Zero Dawn added into the mix, it's clear that Sony is going all out with its new program.
