Bandai Namco has announced it is giving away PAC-Man Championship Edition 2 for free on PS4, Xbox One and PC via Steam until May 10th. The publisher announced this move as it confirmed its own response to the COVID 19 pandemic in which is stated that employees are working from home, and it has also set a thank you to everyone working in the medical field. The reason that Bandai Namco has decided to give a game away is that the company wants to follow its slogan of “more fun for everyone.” Additionally, it believes that people need to be entertained while being in lockdown and this is one of the ways it can be socially responsible to help with that.

In our review for PAC-MAN Championship Edition 2 Dave wrote:
Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 is simply an incredibly fun and addictive arcade experience that once again reinvents the arcade classic in a compelling way. The visual style feels timeless, looking as great as it did back in 2007. I sincerely hope that Bandai Namco has more tricks up its sleeve with their back catalogue, perhaps even a Dig Dug Championship Edition? I can only dream!
