Square Enix Gives Gamers More Reasons to Stay Home & Play

By Square Enix Team

To Gamers Everywhere:

In March, as the world was disrupted by the Coronavirus crisis, we were warmed by stories of communities banding together to support those in need. In response, Square Enix introduced a campaign called “Stay Home and Play” as our way to reward our loyal gamers for staying home and practicing social distancing.

We kicked off our campaign by giving away Tomb Raider (2013) and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris for free on Steam. Since then, we have continued to share other new free titles and to date, gamers have downloaded nearly 15 million copies of our games!

But we’re not stopping there. We promise to create more opportunities to download games from our portfolio, and only ask one thing in return - please continue to stay home and play, stay safe, and follow your local guidelines.

In addition to offering more free games, our Stay Home and Play campaign will expand to include more opportunities to come together and support one another during this time. Through a partnership with TikTok, our games will be shared as a part of their Small Gestures program.

We will also be introducing Stay Home and Play Steam bundles offering deep discounts on great games from our library with 100% of Square Enix proceeds benefitting Food Banks and other charities in North America and Europe.

Finally, we will partner with UKIE and other organizations to provide gifts of games to show our appreciation for the healthcare workers fighting the pandemic on the front lines.

As we said at the start of our campaign, gamers are part of a global community. We gamers regularly rally together online to return balance to fantasy kingdoms, recruit a team to save the universe from sci-fi threats, and indulge in healthy competition through high-octane action games. We are proud of the passion and concern our community displays and we hope that you will continue to support our Stay Home and Play initiatives.
