Ratchet & Clank

Sony is relaunching its "Play at Home" initiative, which allowed PS4 players to grab Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey for free last year. This time, the manufacturer plans to offer the reboot of Ratchet & Clank released in 2016.

Ratchet & Clank offered from March 2 to April 1

Soberly named Ratchet & Clank, the title developed by Insomniac Games is presented as a "reimagining" of the first adventure of the iconic Lombax and his faithful robotic companion. On the program: a platform / adventure mix with colorful characters and a varied and crazy arsenal that should occupy you about ten hours.

Ratchet & Clank will be available for free on the PlayStation Store from March 2 (5am) to April 1 (5am). Once the game is picked up, it will remain permanently accessible in your library. The opportunity to discover the license before the arrival of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart on PS5 on June 11.

A trial extended to Wakanim for new users

The other Sony's offer is aimed at fans of Japanese animation since it concerns Wakanim, a streaming platform owned by the Japanese manufacturer. Starting March 25, in addition to the usual 14-day free trial, new users will be able to access the platform for an additional 90 days via the app on PlayStation consoles. If you don't want to be charged after the end of the trial, be sure to turn off auto-renewal. Wakanim's catalog includes animes like Attack on Titan, Demon Slayer, The Promised Neverland, Your Lie in April and Erased.

Finally, Sony specifies that this is a start and that other free games and offers will be offered "in the coming weeks". The Play at Home initiative is scheduled to last four months.

PlayStation's 'Play At Home' Program Returns, Ratchet & Clank Free Next Month

Ratchet & Clank (2016).


Last year, Sony kickstarted the Play At Home initiative, a program that provided free game to PlayStation players in the hopes of promoting social distancing. Next month, Sony will bring the program back.


Play At Home is fueled by a simple logic. The most surefire way to prevent the spread of covid-19 is to keep people at home. Give them free video games, they’ll be more likely to stay inside and play those games.


During the first run, users were able to claim Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey at no extra cost. Purely by the numbers, Play At Home was wildly successful. According to the Washington Post, 10 million players claimed Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.


As with the “free” PS Plus games, once you redeem a game, it’s yours to keep. The big difference here is that, with games received through the Play At Home initiative, you needn’t pay up a monthly membership fee to keep them in your account.


First up is Ratchet & Clank, Insomniac’s 2016 PS4 remake of the all-time classic. (It’s pretty good.) You’ll be able to snag it from March 1 through March 31. The game is also available at no extra cost to members of PS Plus who also own a PlayStation 5; it’s one of 20-odd titles included in the PS5-exclusive PS Plus Collection, but again, to keep those you need to keep paying the monthly fee. A new game in the series, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, will come out for PS5 on June 11.


Sony didn’t say what games will be available in the coming months. Unlike last year, Play At Home will run through June. In other PlayStation news, Sony announced today that the PS5 would receive next-get virtual reality. You will almost certainly need to pay for that.
