Get free online matches on PS4 and PS5.

We're nearing the end of the year, and what better way to celebrate with free gifts. Although it's not quite Christmas yet, PlayStation is getting a head start on the action. During this weekend, you will enjoy a free online multiplayer mode. Players can jump into their favorite video games and enjoy matches or cooperative play without having to open their wallet. However, you will want to note how long you will have this free access.

The PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 could have a new use in your household. The official Sony PlayStation Twitter account has alerted followers that gamers will enjoy free online multiplayer starting December 18, 2022. This will only last until the evening of December 19, 2022. As a result, you will enjoy a weekend of free online matches. This should hopefully bring some fans online with their consoles. However, since this is only a small window of time, you might have to pay for a premium subscription service to continue the action.

Dive into online multiplayer modes of your favorite PS4 and PS5 games without a PlayStation Plus subscription during our Online Multiplayer Weekend from December 18 at 00:01 a.m. to December 19 at 23:59 p.m. (local time)

With this, you will have access to online multiplayer as long as you maintain a valid subscription. Then there's also the added bonus of PlayStation Plus games. Although you won't have access this weekend, subscribers will receive free games every month. These will vary by genre, but that's just another bonus each month for having new games to play regularly.

If you're looking for other Sony PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 deals, I suggest you check out our Weekly Video Game Deals page. We update it regularly to showcase the best deals available for both console and PC platforms. Maybe you'll find a game offer to pick up and use online multiplayer with the upcoming free play weekend.
