Sony's PlayStation has announced a new "Play at Home" initiative to support global quarantine measures. This includes giving PS4 owners free access to two games, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey, as well as setting up a fund to aid indie developers during the pandemic.

Jim Ryan, Sony Interactive Entertainment's President & CEO, shared the news in a blogpost, writing, "Play at Home has two components: first, providing free games to help keep the PlayStation community entertained at home; and finally, establishing a fund to help smaller independent game studios who may be experiencing financial difficulties continue building great experiences for all gamers."

Beginning April 15 through to May 5, you can digitally download the adventure game Unchartered, a reworking of the Nathan Drake trilogy from Naughty Dog, and 2012’s indie sensation Journey. Games downloaded through “Play at Home” will be permanently playable, without having to subscribe to or extend PlayStation Plus to gain access.

In addition to this, PlayStation has also pledged $10 million to financially support its independent development partners called "Creative Funding." "Independent developers are vital to the heart and soul of the gaming community and we understand the hardships and financial struggles that many smaller gaming studios are facing," Ryan wrote.
