Download 9 free PS4 & PSVR games with Play at Home 2021 today, links here

The PlayStation Play At Home initiative is going live today, dropping a huge set of nine PS4 and PSVR games into our laps as Sony’s way of saying “Thank you for staying at home and not being a muppet.” Of course, they can’t check to see if you have been staying at home, but maybe having more games will give more people that they can have fun times inside their own four walls.

This below selection of PS4 and PSVR games will be available for free download from March 25 8:00pm PT / March 26 03:00 GMT / 04:00 CET.* Update: The games are now live!

You should be able to grab the following games from the PlayStation Store for free, there’s no requirement to have PlayStation Plus. The first link will take you to the game page on the UK PlayStation Store, the second is for our review of the game.

The Play At Home free games

Free Play at Home 2021 Games – available on 25th March (26th March UK/EU)

All of the games will be available until 22nd April. Don’t forget you can also pick up Ratchet & Clank for PS4 until 31st March at 8PM PDT (4AM BST on 1st April). That’s not all, because from 19th April, Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition (including the base game and the Frozen Wilds DLC) will be given away for free.

That’s a lot of great games all being given away for free, following a renewed commitment to the need to stay at home for many around the world.

At the end of February, PlayStation boss Jim Ryan announced the initiative’s return, saying, “In these historic times, the team at PlayStation wanted to thank the community by giving something back. 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, we wanted to go further [with Play At Home]. So we’ve designed a series of free games and entertainment offers for our PlayStation community to make the next few months a little more fun and enjoyable,” he added.

* Update: Properly noted dates and times to avoid confusion surrounding when the free games are going live.

  1. Well, it’s currently 5am and none of the games are showing as free to me (except those I’ve already purchased, or got on PS+), so I guess something’s gone wrong somewhere.

    • Article also says 26th March, today is 25th… so maybe this was published a day early?

      • Yup article just been updated, it is tomorrow morning UK time.

      • Yes, a bit of a mix up from us with Sony doing things at a time that crosses the date line. The games will be live this evening in the US and in the small hours of the morning for the UK and EU.

      • Why pick 8PM in the US?? It confuses things for countries where that time is tomorrow instead of today, and anyone in the US probably gets enough time to download them and then go to bed. Should have put them up at noon GMT, then it’d be the 25th wherever you are and everyone would get a chance to download and play them today. Apart from Australians and other countries down there.

        On the other hand, my PS5 had an incident and I’ve had to download everything again, so I can at least finish that off before tomorrow. (If you’re playing a PS4 game on a PS5 and it crashes repeatedly, stop playing! It can eventually corrupt the whole system and you need to reinstall the system software from a USB stick and lose everything on the SSD in the process. Not happy about that. I guess the same can probably happen with a PS5 game too)

      • So now I’ve redownloaded everything for the PS5 after “the incident”, I go to download those nice free games…

        Only to discover that the PS5 has now decided to go through everything that has ever been played and not uninstalled and update them all. The PS4 wouldn’t do that if you hadn’t played something in a couple of months. It’d just wait until you try to play it and then surprise you with an update to download. The PS5 seems to like to do it at random for things from years ago.

        Good job download limits are a thing of the past. And yay for free stuff. (With vague rumours of a couple more things to come as well)

  2. Title says 10 but there’s only 9 on the list. What’s missing?

    • Is the 10th not Ratchet & Clank, and then Horizon?

      • No I think it was ratchet and clank first. Then these 10 were announced. 9 for today and then Horizon in a week or two

    • Fixed that as well.

  3. There is also a 3 month trial for Funimation, up from the usual 14 days

  4. Goodness, this is rather nice, isn’t it?
