Sony will give away a selection of ten games for the PlayStation 4 and PSVR starting March 25. The titles come from independent developers and include the likes of Subnautica and Moss, a relaxing single-player VR title where gamers play as Quill, a cute mouse, and embark on a journey through the wilderness to save her uncle from danger.
Getting through rough times — The Play at Home program is Sony’s initiative to give gamers more to do while staying home and staying safe. The program began last year and was well-received, so Sony brought it back at the beginning of March with Ratchet & Clank as the first new title to become a free download. Play at home will run through June.
The latest set of titles are as follows:
- Enter the Gungeon
- Rez Infinite
- The Witness
- Astro Bot Rescue Mission
- Paper Beast
Indies — Though these may not be the most well-known AAA games, they are all indies that have received strong reviews. For a game like the aforementioned Moss, released in 2018, some gamers may have been hesitant to make the purchase because a lot of VR games are kind of lackluster. The small development shops behind these games are presumably being compensated by Sony, which is surely welcome.
The games will become free-to-download on March 25 at 8pm Pacific. Sony says that another, Horizon Zero Down: Complete Edition, will be free from April 19 through May 14.
