Sony offers free online play on PS4 this weekend through Playstation Plus

Sony will be treating everyone that owns a PS4 to free online multiplayer this weekend. The free weekend was confirmed by Andy Lum of Sony Computer Entertainment America.

In a post on the official Playstation Blog to PS4 owners Lum added, “We’re bringing back free online multiplayer to all PS4 owners starting this Friday, courtesy of PlayStation Plus.” The free multiplayer access will begin on Friday, December 11th at 12:01am PST and it will run through Sunday, December 13, at 11:59 PM Pacific.

“What better way to check out the recently released free DLC Star Wars Battlefront Battle of Jakku before the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” Lum added.

Anyone that has a PS4 can join in by following a few simple steps that Lum left on the post:

To get started, log on to PlayStation Network during the free weekend period, launch your favorite multiplayer game, and you’ll instantly have access to multiplayer with your friends. There’s no membership commitment required to try out online multiplayer during this period.

This comes just as Sony is battling Microsoft for holiday dominance. If you don’t have a PS4 at this time you can grab one at its lowest price ever for a limited time. There are two bundles that have been marked down for the holidays, the Uncharted Nathan Drake Bundle and the Star Wars Battelfront Bundle. The Star Wars Battlefront Standard Edition bundle features a 500GB PS4 and a DualShock 4 in Jet Black, the Star Wars Battlefront game, and a digital voucher to download four classic Star Wars games (Super Star Wars, Star Wars: Racer Revenge, Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter, and Star Wars Bounty Hunter).

That bundle includes the single-player campaigns for Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, as well as a 500GB PS4 and a DualShock 4 in Jet Black.
