PlayStation Plus Is Opening Up Multiplayer To Everyone For Free This Weekend

Great news if you were hoping to get in some gaming with friends this weekend but have a lapsed PlayStation Plus subscription, or simply can’t justify spending money on it right now. PlayStation is holding a free online multiplayer weekend so that everyone can join in the fun, whether or not they’re subscribed to PS Plus.

The event runs from 12:01am on Saturday, December 18 through until 11:59am Sunday, December 19 (AEDT) so you’ve got the full weekend to take advantage:

You will still obviously need an active internet connection and a registered PlayStation Network account to take advantage, but the pay gate will be temporarily lifted for all!
