Ratchet & Clank was done free earlier this month when Sony Interactive Entertainment took back its Play at Home Initiative to support shielding, security and social distancing efforts during the global COVID-19 pandemic. It is available to anyone with a (free) PlayStation Network account; PlayStation Plus or other subscription is not required.

Ratchet & Clank is part of the 20-game PlayStation Plus Collection on PS5, so those with a PS Plus subscription already have it. It was also offered as a free game to PlayStation Plus subscribers in March 2018.
Nine other games went free via Play at Home on March 25: Abzu, Enter the Gungeon, Rez Infinite, Subnautica, and Witness for PS4; and Astro Bot Rescue Mission, Moss, Thumper, and Paper Beast for PlayStation VR. They are available until April 22.
Horizon Zero Dawn, another title on the PS Plus Collection, will be available for free between April 19 and May 14 through the Play at Home Initiative.
