Today Sony revealed the next iteration of its “Play at Home” campaign with a slew of free games for users to download and play starting on March 25 until April 22.
Free ‘Play at Home’ PSVR Games
Out of the nine games, five of them are either exclusive to PSVR or have optional VR support, which includes Astro Bot Rescue Mission, Moss, Paper Beast, Rez Infinite, and Thumper.
This is a very welcomed surprise! So far this year as part of PS+ Sony has given out Concrete Genie, which of course includes optional PSVR support, and Farpoint, the PSVR-exclusive sci-fi shooter with fantastic PS Aim Controller support. And now, starting next week, five more PSVR games are dropping for users to claim — including some of the platform’s very best.
These games are all part of Sony’s “Play at Home” initiative that it started as a result of ongoing lockdowns during the global COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. Right now, you can get Insomniac’s latest Ratchet & Clank game on PS4 for free as part of “Play at Home” if you’d like.
Hopefully when Sony releases PSVR 2 (or whatever they decide to call it) after this year, it will be fully backwards compatible with the entire PSVR library. If that’s the case, it certainly feels like Sony is trying to help prospective users build up a library of PSVR titles that they can bring forward with them onto the new headset for PS5. Imagine playing a game like Rez Infinite with an even sharper display—that sounds pretty great.
