A popular PlayStation 4 game has just been made 100% free on the PlayStation Network for a very limited time, following in the steps of Xbox One giving players the same promotion. The LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game is now available for free on the PS4, so fans can now take advantage of another amazing LEGO game from publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. But if you want to take advantage you will have to act fast, as the offer is not permanent and is going away very soon.
According to an official tweet from the WB Games Twitter account, the popular LEGO game is now free on PS4, but this offer is only available until May 21, also known as next Thursday. After this period, the game will return to its normal price of $50. That said, if you download the game during this time, not only do you get to play it for free, but keep it forever. This is to say that this is not a free trial or a free demo or anything that expires: it's a free download.
In addition to being available in North America, the offer is also available in Europe. It's unclear if it's available in any regions beyond these two. Further, it's unclear why the offer is being extended in the first place, but it presumably has to do with the coronavirus pandemic. Not only have publishers and developers been making their games free en masse as a result of the pandemic, but there are hashtags encouraging gamers to stay home that accompany the post.
As mentioned at the top, the game has also been free on Xbox One since last night. And in addition to console, it's also available for free on PC. The game is also available on the Nintendo Switch, but, for now, it hasn't been made free on this platform.
