Sony is celebrating the launch of Street Fighter V with their newest offering: a free multiplayer weekend that starts this Friday. This means you can load up any PlayStation 4 game and play its multiplayer mode free of cost through the entire weekend. If you don’t have a PlayStation Plus subscription, now’s your chance to find out what the multiplayer is like for your favourite game (well, unless your favourite game is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, or something).
According to the official PlayStation blog, the free weekend will start on Friday, February 19th, at 12:01 AM Pacific and end on Sunday, February 21st, at 11:59 PM Pacific. As VG247 notes, the free weekend only looks to be valid for North America at the moment, so it’s unknown whether it will be valid in the rest of the world.
Of course, this only applies to playing multiplayer games: if you don’t have PlayStation Plus, you will not get the other PlayStation Plus benefits, such as free games, member discounts, online game saves, etc. Still, being able to play multiplayer for free is not a bad deal at all.
