SONY has announced that they will be giving PS4 and PS5 players free access to online multiplayer this Valentine’s weekend.
The gaming system giant is giving players a special Valentine’s Day gift throughout the weekend: free access to online multiplayer.
“Share the love of multiplayer this Valentine’s Day! Play online with family and friends from February 12-14,” the company wrote on their PlayStation Blog.
Throughout the weekend, gamers will be able to play online multiplayer in any PS4 or PS5 game that would normally require a PS Plus subscription.
Sony specifically mentioned in the blog EA SPORTS UFC 4, NBA 2K22 and FIFA 22 as some suggestions for players to try.
However, Game Radar note that the “free” plan only applies to the “online multiplayer” feature, as users need to actually own the games they want to play first.
The only way to really get free games from Sony is to join their monthly PlayStation Plus (PS Plus) subscription.
Subscription will set you back $9.99 monthly, $24.99 quarterly, or $59.99 annually.
The service gives members three free PlayStation games to download each month before the month ends.
Free games in February 2022 include UFC 4, Planet Coaster Console Edition, and Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep: A Wonderlands One-shot Adventure.
This announcement comes amid rumors that PlayStation may soon switch this service to compete with Xbox’s Game Pass.
The company may also want to serve fans who have shut down the PS Plus service to recycle old games rather than ditching new games.
