Video games have been a much welcome lifeline for those of us stuck in our homes. A couple of weeks back, Sony started offering two games; the Uncharted Collection and Journey, for free on PSN! Now, Bandai Namco‘s doing the same thing, with Pac-Man Championship Edition 2!
While Sony’s offering is only valid on the PS4 (understandably), Bandai Namco‘s free gift will be available to a much wider audience since Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 is a multi-platform title.
That means, you’ll get to play the game on PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Sadly the Nintendo Switch is out of the luck, as the version available on that platform is an upgraded version of the title; Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus.
One bummer though; you’ll need to wait till 1AM SGT (GMT +8) if you’re interested in taking up Bandai Namco’s offer. That’s because the game only turns free (it’s SGD$19.90 now on Steam) early tomorrow morning, due to the time difference between us and the U.S.
Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 is the sequel to Pac-Man Championship Edition DX. It’s a modernized version of the arcade classic, with new gameplay elements (just as jump pads that fling the yellow gobbler around the stage or a bomb that instantly returns him to the start of the maze) and tons of new stages to play through.
Unfortunately, the co-op mode present in the updated Switch version of the title won’t be in giveaway. Still, you’re getting the game for free! Why complain about something that’s missing, right?
Remember, Bandai Namco’s only offering the game for free for a limited time only. If you don’t add the game to your collection between April 24 (well April 25 for us Singaporeans) and May 10 (May 11 for us), it’ll revert back to its original price.
