PlayStation has announced its new “Play at Home” initiative for gamers during quarantine, which includes giving PlayStation 4 owners two free games and offering indie developers a fund to stay afloat during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The initiative will see two free games given away this month, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and 2012’s indie sensation Journey, which will make its debut on Steam this summer. It also entails a $10 million USD fund to financially support its own independent development partners called “Creative Funding.”

“At Sony Interactive Entertainment, we are privileged to bring this much-needed entertainment,” Sony said in its announcement post. “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.”

Earlier this month PlayStation Plus subscribers were offered the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End for free, meaning that with the “Play at Home” initiative, many PS4 owners can partake in all of the franchise’s flagship titles for free.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection was previously a PlayStation Plus title offered for free at the beginning of the year. However, games downloaded through the “Play at Home” initiative will be playable permanently, without having to subscribe to or extend PlayStation Plus to gain access.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey will be available to download starting April 15 at 8 p.m. PDT through May 5.

In related gaming news, the latest Nintendo Switch update allows for remapped buttons and a newly implemented transfer function for SD cards.
