Sony's has made it's effort to help contain the spread of COVID-19, as it is encouraging people to continue with social distancing and stay at home playing video games. As a thank you to the one's who are doing their part to lessen the impact of this pandemic, Sony Interactive Entertainment is pleased to announce the Play At Home initiative. From April 16th until May 6th, we'll be able to get our hands on Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey. Technically, that's four games. So, for PlayStation Plus subscribers, the Play at Home initiative means that the entire Unchartedseries is currently available to them for free. Once you claim them, you can keep them forever. Note that German and Chinese PS4 players won't have the same free games - instead, they're getting platformer Knack 2 along with Journey. In alignment with SIE’s goal in preserving Internet access in the US and Europe, game downloads may take a little longer, but we appreciate the understanding from our community as we take these measures in an effort to preserve access for everyone. Sony has started a $10 million fund to financially support its independent development partners, as they may be facing unexpected hardships during the pandemic. Once this offer goes live, go to "PlayStation Store" from your PlayStation home screen and select the offer screen from the menu on the left-hand side of the screen - from there, simply follow the instructions given. If the offer isn't showing then go to the search bar in PlayStation Store and search for the games individually. Click through to the listing for Journey or Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection (remember it needs to be this edition) and under price the game should show as "free". You can then add it to your library and then repeat the same steps for the other game.

"At Sony Interactive Entertainment, we are privileged to bring this much-needed entertainment. We know this is just one small step and we are thankful to be able to offer this support to our players, our communities, and our partners," Sony said in a statement about the Play at Home initiative.
