In other news, Jim Ryan, current President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, has recently published an entry on the official PlayStation blog announcing a new program called the ‘Play At Home Initiative’ that was born with the intention of helping players stay home during the isolation caused by the global pandemic of COVID-19. The Play At Home initiative consists of two main actions: giving away games and financially supporting indie developers.
For the first action, Sony has decided to give away Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey on PlayStation 4. Both games is now completely free of charge. Regarding financial support for independent studios, the Sony CEO has announced a $10 million fund dedicated exclusively to this purpose. No further details have been given as to who will be able to access this type of private aid.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is a pack that collects the first three installments of the treasure hunter saga. It is a celebration of the famous Naughty Dog franchise in which the groundbreaking works of the studio are recovered and modernized with two remastered versions for PlayStation 4.
Journey, meanwhile, is an evocative standalone video game developed by thatgamecompany for Sony within a deal that included three exclusive titles for the company’s consoles; this impressive work on loneliness, cooperation, life and death puts the icing on the cake.
