Developed by Guerrilla Games, Horizon Zero Dawn released on the PS4 back in 2017, and a sequel is set to release later this year.

For those unfamiliar with the Play at Home program, it's PlayStation's way of making things easier on players staying at home during the coronavirus pandemic. The program offered two games for free last year, but in 2021, players are being treated to four months of free content. Things started in March with Ratchet & Clank, while April has featured 10 different indie games (which are still available for a few more days). Once downloaded, the Play at Home games are free to keep forever, with no strings attached! With so many games that have been made available, players are bound to find something that they'll enjoy.
The coronavirus pandemic has had a very big impact on the video game industry, from cancelled events, to delayed games, and even a shortage of game consoles. While vaccine distribution has ramped up worldwide, gaming continues to provide a strong form of escapism for players. The free games that are being offered through the Play at Home program just might help some players take their minds off the pandemic, even if it's just for a little while.
