Sony's Play At Home campaign offers four free games for PS4

Everyone is spending more time at home than ever due to the spread of COVID-19. Whether it is full on curfew, stay-at-home order, or just a suggestion, much of the nation and the world are stuck inside.
This has meant that some industries, including movie theaters, have inevitably crumbled to nothingness for the time being, and others are booming, like Microsoft's Teams and video game sales.

Game platforms are competing against each other for this newly found player base. Stadia launched finally their free tier service and also offers free two-month trial into their Premium tier.

Now Sony has decided to give some goodies to PlayStation 4 owners. The new Stay At Home campaign offers four free games starting on April 16, so tomorrow. The deal ends on May 5, so you have plenty of time to claim your gifts.

This includes Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, which consists of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception games. The fourth free game is a 2012 indie adventure game Journey.

Remember that even if you don't feel like playing the games now, you should claim them now, since you can keep them even after the campaign ends. The company noted that in some regions download speeds have been capped to preserve bandwidth so don't be surprised if downloading the free games might take a little longer than normal.

Sony also announced that it will be helping smaller game studios during the pandemic by giving away a total of $10 million in aid.
