Are you looking for some video games to stay home-grown to combat coronavirus spread? Sony has given away the PlayStation 4 for players.
From Wednesday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. 20: PS4 owners can download “Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection” and “Journey” for free. After downloading the games, you can save them. But you have to download the games until May 5th.
People around the world are doing the right thing by staying home to help spread COVID-19,” Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO Jim Ryan wrote in a post on the PlayStation blog. “We are deeply grateful to all who practice physical distance and take our responsibility as a recreational home entertainment platform seriously. We, therefore, urge our community to support safe opportunities and the need to play at home.
The Play At Home initiative also includes a $ 10 million fund to support independent game developers. “Independent developers are essential to the heart and soul of the gaming community, and we understand the hardships and financial struggles many smaller gaming studios suffer,” he said.
The Uncharted games – “Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune,” “Uncharted 2: Among Thieves,” and “Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception” – are action-packed adventures featuring treasure hero Nathan Drake. Originally released between 2007 and 2011 for the PlayStation 3, each has been redesigned for the PS4.
“Journey” is a one-player exploration game from this company. An undescribed character navigates through the broken world. “The message to confirm the life of the game is timeless and perhaps more important now than ever,” Ryan said.
Sony is partnering with US and European internet service providers to manage download traffic, so downloading the game “takes more time,” he said.
“In these days of physical distancing, fans have a moment to breathe and enjoy the game,” he said. “At Sony Interactive Entertainment, we have the privilege to bring this much-needed entertainment. We know it’s only a small step and we appreciate the support we can provide to our players, our communities and our partners.”
