Lucky enough for all PlayStation 4 owners, starting at 12:01 AM PDT this Friday September 26th through 11:59 PM PDT Sunday September 28th online multiplayer for all PlayStation 4 games will be free as part of a special promotion. Sony announced the promotion via their PlayStation Blog this past Monday.

Gamers will get a chance to try out Sony’s PlayStation Plus service which is usually $50 for a year package. This gives owners of recent releases such as Destiny, Madden NFL 15, FIFA 15 and Diablo III a chance to try out their popular multiplayer features.

The best news for PlayStation 4 owners who don’t have a PlayStation Plus subscription is that online play isn’t the only component of the service. PlayStation Plus also features free games every month, as well as discounts on digital content that is released periodically.

The cherry on top is that your PlayStation Plus subscription works across the PlayStation 4, PlayStation3, and PlayStation Vita.

Other features of PlayStation Plus can be found at the official site here.

The method to obtaining the free service is simple enough, just log on and start a game and you’re good to go. Enjoy!

Born a gamer, living a gamers life, and will die a gamer. I vividly recall playing Mortal Kombat 1 for the first time, I just happened to be 4 years old. Thankfully I didn't grow up to become a psycho who rips peoples hearts out, I grew up to be a writer, which is significantly less violent. However In my spare time I do rip people's hearts out via my Xbox 360 or PlayStation 4. A down to earth college student looking to get his start in video game writing.
