Sony offered free games and other entertainment this past spring to help PlayStation gamers overcome the early COVID-19 pandemic, and is bringing that campaign back for what could be the last months of crashes (hopefully? from Play At Home will be offering giveaways between March and June to encourage social distancing as the weather warms up, and the first giveaway is great. You will get a free copy of Ratchet and Clank For PS4 between March 1 at 11 PM ET and March 31 at 11 PM ET, no subscription required for PlayStation Plus – the generally well-received action adventure you should save for posterity.
The company hasn’t provided all the details of what’s to come, but Funimation (plus its European counterpart Wakanim) will offer “extended access” to its anime service for new subscribers starting March 25. More free games and entertainment offers are in the works.
This is not just an altruistic gesture. A free copy of Ratchet and Clank effectively serves as a promotion for Rift ApartThe PS5 debut in June, for example. We also wouldn’t expect too many recent games or lasting media deals. Still, this might help you feel better if you’re stuck indoors on a beautiful day.
