PlayStation 4 online multiplayer unlocked for all this weekend

That's a plus.

Sony will unlock the PlayStation 4's multiplayer capabilities this coming weekend, allowing for free and unlimited online play.

The weekend event runs from 6am this Friday, 13th February until 6am, Monday 16th February, UK time.

Access is unrestricted no matter which title you play: Grand Theft Auto 5, Far Cry 4, Dragon Age: Inquisition - or maybe that little heard of game named Destiny.

PlayStation 4 is the first Sony console to require a subscription to play online, although PlayStation Plus membership also provides a bonus helping of monthly free games.

Access to these titles isn't part of the weekend event - for that you'll need a proper PlayStation Plus sub.
