Play at Home 2021 update: 10 free games to download this spring – PlayStation.Blog

Hi again! Last month we revealed our new Play at Home program for 2021, which aims to provide the PlayStation community with free games and entertainment offers to make the next few months a little more fun.

The program kicked off earlier this month with access to a free digital copy of the 2016 hit Ratchet & Clank for PS4 — and you can still claim a free digital copy of the game through March 31, 2021 at 8pm PDT* / April 1 at 4am BST / 5am CEST.

Now, let’s talk about the next Play at Home content drop, which hits March 25! This time our focus is a selection of free games from some of our top independent partners, and the previously announced extended trial offer for Funimation (or Wakanim) in the countries where they are available.

Starting March 25, 2021​

PlayStation and some of our favorite indie partners are collaborating to provide more free games to explore while you’re staying safe and staying home:

Abzû​

From the artistic mind behind Journey, Flower, and The Pathless, ABZÛ is a beautiful underwater adventure that evokes the dream of diving. Immerse yourself in a vibrant ocean world full of mystery and bursting with color and life.

Enter the Gungeon​

Enter the Gungeon is a gunfight dungeon crawler following a band of misfits seeking to shoot, loot, dodge roll and table-flip their way to personal absolution by reaching the legendary Gungeon’s ultimate treasure: the gun that can kill the past.

Rez Infinite​

Prepare yourself for the ultimate version of Rez, a thrilling journey of sights and sounds and shooting action, remastered and upgraded by members of the original development team exclusively for PS4 and (optional) PlayStation VR.

Subnautica​

You have crash-landed on an alien ocean world, and the only way to go is down. Subnautica’s oceans range from sun-drenched shallow coral reefs to treacherous deep-sea trenches, lava fields, and bio-luminescent underwater rivers. The water teems with life: Some of it helpful, much of it harmful.

The Witness​

The Witness is a single-player game in an open world with dozens of locations to explore and over 500 puzzles. This game respects you as an intelligent player and it treats your time as precious. There’s no filler: each of those puzzles brings its own new idea into the mix. So, this is a game full of ideas.

We’re also proud to serve up a selection of free PlayStation VR games*** starting on March 25:

Astro Bot Rescue Mission​

Get a whole new perspective on platform games, thanks to PlayStation VR, in this daring rescue operation. Take control of Astro in a massive adventure to rescue his crew, where the PS VR headset puts you right in the thick of the action. Judge every jump with accuracy and be curious – there are lots of secrets to discover in your daring quest.

Moss​

Moss is a single-player action-adventure puzzle game and new IP from Polyarc tailor-made for the VR platform. In Moss, players meet Quill, a young mouse with dreams of greatness beyond the confines of her settlement. While exploring the woods, she finds a mysterious Glass Relic and an ancient magic is awakened.

Thumper​

Thumper is rhythm violence: classic rhythm-action, blistering speed, and brutal physicality. You are a space beetle. Brave the hellish void and confront a maniacal giant head from the future. Every crushing impact is interwoven with a pounding original soundtrack. To reach synesthetic bliss, you must go through rhythm hell.

Paper Beast​

Experience a dreamlike odyssey in virtual reality. Discover a wild ecosystem, born from lost Internet data. Be the first to explore a world inhabited by exotic and surprising creatures, and shape your environment to overcome obstacles and puzzles. Unravel the mysteries of Paper Beast, a game born from the imagination of Eric Chahi (Another World, From Dust).

This amazing selection of PS4 games and PS VR games will be available for free download from March 25 8:00pm Pacific Time to April 22 8:00pm Pacific Time.

Funimation / Wakanim​

Don’t forget: in participating countries, we’re also offering an extended trial of Funimation (or Wakanim, depending on region), a joint venture of Sony Pictures Entertainment and Aniplex of Japan. The anime-focused subscription service includes shows such as My Hero Academia, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Attack on Titan, and Fruits Basket. This extended trial offer kicks off on March 25 and is available through April 22****.

Nice gesture. Played most. Abzu looks good for me. For those playing the witness, enjoy and cry when you miss the plat because of the race trophy.
 
Wowzers. What a haul.

The Witness and Horizon are 2 of my Top 10 of the gen, plus the two best VR titles in Moss and Astrobot (albeit I’m going to bank them until VR2).

Abzu is the only game on that list that I found forgettable. Everything else is worth sampling, at least.

Awesome selection! Ever since getting my PSVR I had Astro Bot Rescue Mission and Moss on my list to buy. Subnautica is an amazing game that and good to see that more people will be able to try it out.

Not bad. Got ratchet and clank also in the beginning this month, and now these as well.

Big kudos to Sony.

Edit: ratchet and clank is the only free to get game atm now yes?

And can you play moss without vr?

Is Sony updating games like Horizon with PS5 patches? Microsoft has been doing that for quite a few Xbox titles.

Giving away Horizon Zero Dawn is a no-brainer at this point, you can buy it for a few quid on PS4 and it helps with demand for the sequel.

Sadly, Horizon didn't get any framerate unlock yet.

good move with Horizon approaching the sequel. Happy to see those VR titles in my library when I finally get the headset

We ain't outta here in ten minutes, we won't need no rocket to fly through space
Hell of a list for anyone that hasn't already played them.

Don't sleep on Subnautica "because it's a survival game" or The Witness "because it's just maze puzzles".

Already own most of them but great offering nonetheless.

If you own a PSVR and for some weird ass reason haven't play Astrobot, now it's the time to redeem yourself.
 
Can't wait to play the HZD dlc and I've always been meaning to play Subnautica!

I wonder how hard it'll be to jump back into HZD for the dlc, which I heard pushes the difficulty level, when I've totally forgotten how to play the game.

Wow I haven't played nearly any of these!

I do have HZD on disc but no dlc so that's a happy treat! Hopefully a ps5 update is also on the way.

Been curious to try out Abzu, Witness, Rez, and Subnautica. I even think my wife will like a couple of these.
