Nowadays, we're all doing our part to flatten the curve by staying home in hopes of putting the global pandemic to an end soon. But living in isolation for far too long can be very challenging. If you've been looking for an emotional outlet or simply something to take your mind off things for a while, your search stops here: Sony Interactive Entertainment is letting PlayStation 4 users download Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey for free.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is a popular remastered trilogy that includes Naughty Dog's Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. The games revolve around treasure hunter Nathan Drake, who travels across the globe while unraveling mysteries.
On the other hand, Journey is an indie adventure game that features minimalist graphics and intuitive gameplay. It is deemed as one of the "best games of all time."
Both games will be available for a limited time only through digital downloads from April 15 at 8 p.m. PDT (11 a.m. PST) to May 5 at 8 p.m. PDT (3 p.m. PST). Here's the best part: you're also entitled to permanent access if you redeem them now. In other words, there is no need to feel pressured to finish the games upon download because there's no expiration date. Gamers across the world have Sony's Play At Home initiative to thank for this much-needed entertainment.
"People all over the world are doing the right thing by staying home to help contain the spread of COVID-19," said Jim Ryan, president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment on the PlayStation Blog. "We are deeply grateful to everyone practicing physical distancing and take our responsibility as a home entertainment platform seriously, so we are asking our community to continue supporting the safe choice and the need to Play At Home."
In addition to providing free games, the Play At Home initiative is allotting a U.S. $10-million fund to support Sony's independent development partners who may be struggling amid the global pandemic.
