Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey will be available for free for most Playstation players as of April 15th.
Playstation announced the giveaway as a part of its new Play At Home initiative, which aims to respond to consumers and developers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The initiative was announced by Sony Interactive Entertainment president Jim Ryan, in a post to the Playstation Blog.
As well as free games for players, the initiative also includes a $10 million fund to support its partnered independent developers financially affected by the pandemic.
However, it’s worth noting that PlayStation users in Germany and China are unable to claim Uncharted. Instead, players will have access to a free copy of Knack 2 as a substitute. Journey will be available to all players, regardless of location.
Players can claim their free games anytime between April 15th and May 5th. Once a user redeems the games, they are theirs to keep.
