Today's Your Last Chance To Get Ratchet & Clank Free On PS4, PS5

PlayStation has brought back its Play at Home initiative, starting with giving away Ratchet & Clank. Get it before it's gone.


The new 60fps update for Ratchet & Clank is available now for PS5, and today is also the last day to claim the game for free.

The freebie comes as part of PlayStation's Play at Home initiative, a program that Sony debuted last year as a way of giving back during the COVID-19 pandemic. After you claim Ratchet & Clank, you can keep it forever. You have through today, March 31, to snag Ratchet & Clank, but more freebies will be given away in the coming months. These include Horizon: Zero Dawn - Complete Edition beginning April 19.

For now, freebies include:

  • Subnautica
  • Enter the Gungeon
  • Abzu
  • The Witness
  • Rez Infinite
  • Astro Bot Rescue Mission
  • Moss
  • Thumper
  • Paper Beast

A reimagining of the first game in the action-platformer series, Ratchet & Clank landed on PS4 in 2016 with significantly overhauled visuals and quality-of-life gameplay improvements. It earned an 8/10 in GameSpot's Ratchet & Clank review. While the freebie is available to both PS5 and PS4 users, Ratchet & Clank is part of the PlayStation Plus Collection, so many PS5 owners already have access to it.

If you haven't played Ratchet & Clank on PS4, now's a great time to check it out. The next entry in the series, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, arrives on PS5 on June 11. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart preorders are live now and come with multiple neat bonuses.

The giveaway is just the first in this year's iteration of Play at Home. The first entertainment promotion kicked off March 25 and will give new subscribers to Funimation a whopping 90 additional days on their free trial (normally lasts 14 days).

In addition to Ratchet & Clank, make sure to snag March's PS Plus free games, which are still live and include Final Fantasy 7 Remake. April's games should be available next week.
