Horizon Zero Dawn is coming to Sony’s free Play At Home program in AprilMarch 17, 2021
Looking to play Horizon Zero Dawn before? You’ll soon be in luck. On Wednesday Sony revealed its latest batch of games for its Play At Home program, revealing that it will be making Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition available as a free download next month.
First launched last April, the program was created as part of Sony’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, giving free games to people to “help keep the PlayStation community entertained at home.” Original titles available as part of Play At Home included Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey. Last month the company announced that it would be extending the program, running it from March through June.
Horizon Zero Dawn will be available to download for free from April 19 at 8 p.m. PT (11 p.m. ET) to download the game. It will be available at no cost until 8 p.m. PT on May 14.
After, Sony also announced Wednesday that it is working with a variety of independent studios to make their games available for free to those with a and . The new drop starts on March 25 and consists of eight indie games, four of which are for PlayStation VR. The titles include:
- Enter the Gungeon
- Rez Infinite
- The Witness
- Astro Bot Rescue Mission (PSVR)
- Moss (PSVR)
- Thumper (PSVR)
- Paper Beast (PSVR)
As with the earlier Play At Home games, these games will be free to anyone who connects their PlayStation to the internet and goes to the PlayStation Store — not just those with Sony’s premium PlayStation Plus subscription service.
All the games can be played on PS4 or PS5, though the VR titles require a PSVR (with Moss and Paper Beast also requiring a DualShock 4 controller). Sony says that once you download a game it’s yours to keep, even after the window closes.
The above list of games will be available for free starting at 8 p.m. PT (11 p.m. ET) on March 25, though you will need to download them before 11 p.m. ET on April 22. Ratchet and Clank for PS4 will remain available as a free download until 8 p.m. PT on March 31.
