      TLOU Remastered was already on PS+ a while back. Not sure if they'd give it away again?

      •  

        They did with ratchet and clank

        •  

          Also Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection

      •  

        The Witness was part of PS+ monthly games too.

    •  

      Likely 2 more first party exclusives to give away.

      The Last of Us Remastered is a likely because I bought it, knowing my luck, there is a good chance it will be given away for free. Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition… I bought it before… and now it is going to be free…

  •  

    Really wanted to play Subnautica and Abzu, they look like interesting games!
    Already finished The Witness and HZD but both were excellent games too. And Gungeon will be fun to play in console instead, might be easier too

  •  

    Just since noone has mentioned how good Thumper is - its very good. Basically an on rails rhythm game with a really trippy & psychedelic soundtrack/visual experience. Also gets very challenging

    Im past my recreational drug phase but if you like a bit of devils lettuce this games an experience let me tell ya

    •  

      Incredible with headphones & almost terrifying at some stages. Didn’t they call it a rhythm horror game?

  •  

    Sony is really bringing it with the freebies. Far better than the crappy rom rental scheme Nintendo have.

      Nintendo is so bizarre. They have most of the best exclusives and one of the most fun hardware setups (Switch/3DS).

      But they just seem to hate online and digital with a passion.

      Not letting people review games?

      Not banning shovelware or moderating the store at all?

      The dismal experience that is Nintendo Online and having to pay for it (I've paid exactly once, when I bought the 2-in-1 voucher).

  •  

    Damn Bought Horizon Zero Dawn on the last sale. Half way through.. Hmm might as well finish before the freebie Starts

    I purchased most of these. :/

    Good deal though. Astro bot is sick.

  •  

    ¿×%₩¥!!!! Just brought Moss last week… >_>

  •  

    Loved this game, one of the very best last gen. I sold it off before the DLC.

    Does anyone know if I'll be able to play the DLC component without a save file?

  •  

    Ok

    I'm buying VR

  •  

    HZD Complete Edition is showing $24.95 ? is there a special link to get it for free?

      You're 1 month too early.

        LOL, I totally didn't see that. Thanks I'll have to set a reminder.

    I don't like the way the PSN doesn't allow you to "buy" a game if you've collected the PS+ version, which is tied to your subscription. These is apparently an actual freebie which doesn't expire once claimed. But you can't replace the PS+ copy if you already claimed it there.

      You can create another account to claim those free games

    abzu is already free now?

  •  

    Abzu is the only one free for now

    Post says "later today" but I managed to grab them all as of now. Enjoy :)

  •  

    Just added all to my library

  •  

    If I add them to my library, do I have to download them now?

    • +2 votes

      No, you can download them at anytime later.

      • +4 votes

        Is this confirmed as on the game page it says

        "Download before 23 April 04:00 BST".

        Which makes it sound like you need to download before then or you won't be able to. Hopefully just poorly worded.

  •  

    Thanks! Added them all :D

  •  

    Just claimed them all. Does anyone know if these would work on PS5 (for when I eventually get a PS5)?

    • +2 votes

      almost all PS4 games are backward compatible with PS5

  •  

    anyone know the us store link for these games?

    Whenever try to add game to library …. "Something went wrong, please try again later"

      Use the PS App on your phone.

        Thanks, finally figure out the AU account cannot add to library, but the en-us link above works…

    •  

      I'm getting the same error, and the US link doesn't work either.

  •  

    "Play at home", after I get home from work.

      Shh, don't tell Sony that we ran out of COVID and are going outside again. The rest of the world doesn't know.

      •  

        SA on lockdown again… apparently not that ran out though…

        we just need more free games to keep us grounded…

  •  

    Rez not working?

  •  

    Out of the 4 VR games are any of these game able to be played without VR or is VR required

    • +1 vote

      Only Thumper is VR-optional, the rest require VR.

      Each game's store listing (as linked in the OP) detail their requirements.

      •  

        Thanks heaps

  •  

    Cheers OP still working! :)

  •  

    So we wait till 20th right…?

    It's been past the 19th of April and Horizon is still not free for me. What's going on?

      Starting at 1pm today.

    •  

      It should be after 1pm Sydney time.

    •  

      It's out as of 30 min ago

    It's the Horizon day today!

    Now live! Enjoy! https://i.imgur.com/cu7B0Lb.jpeg

    Remember you can use the PS App on your smartphone to claim and/or download directly to PS5 if linked and on rest mode.

    •  

      You can claim it through desktop browser too

    •  

      Using the PS App is definitely the way! The website was buggy as hell when I tried last.

  •  

    Wish I knew about this before the school holidays so I could spend time playing some of them…

  •  

    Ummmm, is this real? Did i forget to wake up this morning!??

    Awesomeness! Downloaded

    Got Horizon. Thanks OP

  •  

    Thanks OP got all of them…Cheers

    Query - do we need to download the game to keep it as it specifically says - As part of our Play at Home campaign, you can download and keep these games for free. Download from 26 March 2pm AEDT to 23 April 5pm AEDT

    • +2 votes

      Do we need to download the game to keep it

      No.

      I don't own a Playstation, but after 'purchasing' with the link it now shows up in my library, same as all the other freebies. Fundamentally, it's the same process as Games with Gold (press button to add licence to account). Once it's there it's ours.

  •  

    How do we boost this post back up so people see it a month after it was posted, for today's free game?

    •  

      Maybe we should ask the mods - it has been a month since it was posted, dunno what the specific rules are for reposting or other options

  • +1 vote

    I was too hasty. Mods are all over it: will be posted on the front page a bunch of times (2021-04-20 12:30PM; 2021-04-20 03:00PM; 2021-04-20 08:00PM and 2021-04-20 11:50PM), and was in the newsletter today. My bad.

    Extremely lucky for new PlayStation players! Enjoy!

  •  

    Something went wrong. Try again later.

    •  

      Yep same. And the app just asks me to log in when I already am. There’s always some random bug every month making the PS+ games an awkward dance to claim.

    • +2 votes

      It doesn't work from me either, when I use the link above and go to HZD page directly.

      However when I start click into the game from this page: https://www.playstation.com/en-au/play-at-home/ it worked.

      •  

        Thank you. This worked.

  •  

    Horizon Zero Dawn, I've been waiting so long to play this. Right after I finish Ghost of Tsushima

  •  

    Felt like the longest wait ever. But does not sound as long as those people waited for those Dell 4K monitors….
    Thanks Sony.
    Can't wait for the next free one.

  •  

    I have disk version of the game already installed. I have claimed the free game too. How do I convert from playing the disc version to digital version without loosing the progress.

  •  

    Got horizon zero dawn free today. Not the others tho!

    •  

      Others have expired.

      March 25 8:00pm Pacific Time to April 22 8:00pm Pacific Time.
