Sony announced the happiest news to its gamers. Their new play at home campaign will reward PlayStation 4 owners with free games. Besides that, they plan to raise funds for helping independent developers. As we all know, the present situation of the COVID-19 pandemic has shaken the game industry as well. This bold step will definitely be a helping hand for the new and independent developers, struggling during this time.
We all can say that Sony has come up with a great idea to keep people entertained in their homes and maintain social distancing. At the same time, it’s a great relief and support for independent developers.
PlayStation will make the time enjoyable by providing Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey for free. The P4 players can have their claims on their games by downloading them digitally from April 15 at 8 pm PDT through May 5, 2020, at 8 pm PDT. There are no conditions or strings attached. Once downloaded, the gamers can keep it for their own.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is a popular and adventurous game widely played by gamers all around. The collection includes Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. This thrilling treasure hunting 3-game collection will give you the best time to be spent with. The journey is an adventurous game. The action and thrill in the game can keep you rooted and take you to a new world of mystery.
Sony also marked that the game downloads will take a longer time than usual. Since more people are playing games online, they are already handling the bottlenecks of the internet. This strategy will preserve access for everyone around the world.
These games are provided worldwide except for China and Germany. Instead of Uncharted, they will have access to Knack2 and Journey.
Sony will provide financial support to independent developers. They have earmarked $10 million to support their independent development partners. This will be a helping hand to save small gaming studios that face financial issues and struggle during this hard time. However, not much information regarding the fund has been updated by them.
