PlayStation 4 Multiplayer Is Free this Coming Weekend
The best things in life are free, right? Absolutely!
If you happen to own a PlayStation 4 and don’t have a subscription to PlayStation Plus, which is required if you want to play games online, then it’s certainly going to be a very good weekend for you.
According from PlayStation Blog's announcement, those without a PlayStation Plus subscription will be able to hop online and play with their friends starting Friday, February 19, at 12:01am PT for free. The offer runs until Sunday, February 21, at 11:59pm PT. This latest free multiplayer weekend arrives in time for the launch of Street Fighter 5, the latest iteration in the legendary fighting franchise which happens to be a console exclusive to PlayStation 4. In addition to highlighting the release of Street Fighter 5, Sony is also encouraging players to check out Call of Duty: Black Ops III's new DLC, Awakening, which launched earlier this month for PlayStation 4.
While multiplayer is free for PS4 owners this coming weekend, there's still no way to access the free games or special discounts if you're not a PS Plus member. Still, it is a good move for Sony for making the multiplayer free for PS4 owners, at least this coming weekend. It will encourage the non-PS Plus subscribers to get a subscription on PS Plus.
Will you be taking advantage of this weekend's free multiplayer access?
