Everyone loves a freebie, right? Especially when it comes to video games, and particularly in this time when we’re still spending a bunch of time at home.
First announced in April 2020, Play at Home is the company’s strategy to encourage people to stay indoors and play games amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic — Sony has previously given away such classics as stunning indie Journey and adventure series Uncharted for free.
If you’re keen to join young hunter Aloy and track down mechanical T-rexes across the land in this critically lauded but definitely not perfect open-world adventure, Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition is available to download free from now up until 11 p.m ET / 8 p.m. PT on May 14 (4 a.m. BST on May 15 ) if you have a PS4 or PS5 console.
The “complete edition” element means the original game comes with The Frozen Wilds expansion, extra outfit and weapon packs, a digital art book, and PS4 theme. And nope, you don’t need a subscription to PS Plus to download the game for free and keep it, just a console.
With the sequel, Horizon Forbidden West, possibly set for release on PS4 and PS5 later this year, it’s a pretty good time to catch up on the first game.
There’s also a bunch of indie games available to grab and keep for free as part of Play at Home until April 23 including underwater adventure ABZÛ, dungeon crawler Enter the Gungeon, and diving mystery Subnautica, as well as VR games Moss and Paper Beast.
Hooray for more things to do at home.
