Sony’s popular PlayStation Play At Home 2021 initiative has returned this April with a selection of 10 downloadable game titles for free.

First launched during the pandemic in April 2020, the Play At Home initiative aims to encourage physical distancing though enjoyable home entertainment incentives.

This year’s edition will introduce 10 game titles for download, up from the previous year’s two, and include the popular Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition. 

From Mar 26 to Apr 23, users can download from a selection of nine PS4 and PlayStation Virtual Reality games. Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition will be made available from Apr 20 to May 15.

This year’s selection will feature small-scale games from PlayStation’s independent partners, according to the official PlayStation Blog.

In the announcement on Feb 23, Sony Interactive Entertainment president and chief executive Jim Ryan said that the PlayStation team had wanted to “thank the community by giving something back”.

He said: “These days, we could all use something to look forward to and another reason to stay safely socially distanced, so we are happy to be able to offer a free selection of great games and some entertainment offers.”

This year’s Play At Home began in early March with a free download of the 2016 Ratchet & Clank game for PS4. The initiative will be extended through June, although no further details on additional game releases have been announced.
