Sony is offering free multiplayer on PSN this weekend
Feb 18 2016 by Kate Woods
The fact that Sony wishes to beta test the update with consumers suggest that the update will be substantial, or possibly introduce some new features to the system. At the moment, the company hasn't provided additional information about the content coming in this new system software update. Once Monday rolls around, though, you'll need to snatch up a PS Plus subscription in order to keep playing.
Requirements to be one of the beta testers for the system update include, of course, the PlayStation 4 console, internet connection as well as a master account.
In a new post over on the official PlayStation Blog, Sony has announced that you can now sign up to join as a beta tester for the next Playstation 4 firmware update. At the same time, "Street Fighter V" just released and that's definitely worth playing online this weekend. They announced today that every PS4 owner will have access to free online multiplayer from February 19th at 12:01 AM PT to February 21st at 11:59 PM PT. As the name implies, you'll be able to connect your system and play any game in your library online, all without paying an extra dime.
A previous Inquisitr report cited producer Yoshinori Ono's interview with Hadoken, where he explained that the development of Street Fighter 5 was anchored to the word "reset". Sure, the two games may be complete opposites, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a better reason for a free multiplayer weekend. This weekend PS4 owners can get on PSN and enjoy the multiplayer mode of their favorite game.
