Over the last couple of months, we’ve seen more and more people going into government-enforced quarantine in order to help slow the spread of the deadly Covid-19 pandemic. Many companies and wealthy individuals have done their part to help those in need, and now Sony Interactive Entertainment is jumping into the fray.
Starting 16 April, SIE will start the Play At Home Initiative, which has two components to it. First, the company will be giving away Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, and Journey on PS4 for free. The offer is available through digital download from 16 April to 6 May, and once claimed, it is yours to keep.
The second component of the Play At Home Initiative is a fund developed by SIE to help support their independent development partners through these trying times. They’ve earmarked $10 million for the fund. More information on the fund, and how one can participate in it will be made available soon.
During these days of physical distancing, fans have turned to gaming for moments of respite and enjoyment. 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.
Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment
